I understand from the introduction that most of the text was dictated to his secretAry. Some of the book sounds self convratulatory -I wonder if he would of have edited some of this bragging tone had he had time. I guess that he was a person with much confidence, possibly a bit arrogant, but he used his gift of oratory to work for the Jewish communities he served and to speak out against racial injustice-
