The book is only 34 pages, with wide margins. It shouldn't take you more than two days to read it.
Many reviewers have commented on the material in the book so I'll just add that what MLK talked about is just as relevant today as it was in 1958. We still need these messages. We still need someone to bring them to our society. We still struggle in many ways and I'd like believe MLK could have helped us alleviate some of the pain. You should read this book. You never know, you might be the next MLK.
However, I thoroughly enjoyed reading these two short lectures given by King. He has incredible insight into what exactly is the measure of a man. His words beg the hearer to consider how he relates to himself, his fellow man, and his Creator.
It should be required reading for every person, especially anyone wanting to understand the very foundation of Kong's understanding of men and drive to see them stand equally one with another in his country.
