The important photos in the print edition have been left out on purpose by the e-book publisher. What a shame!

This is an interesting book. Prior to reading this book I had never heard of John Mitchell Jr. This book was well-written, but somewhat boring in some chapters. I know this is an auto-biography, but this book read like a textbook. There were times when I put it down and came back to it weeks later. It didn't hold my attention very well. Still, this is an important book about an important man. So, I give it 4 stars.
