From the Publisher
An explosive, award-winning novel in the black literary tradition, "The Spook Who Sat by the Door" is both a satire of the civil rights problems in the United States in the late 1960s and a serious attempt to focus on the issue of black militancy.
Dan Freeman, the "spook who sat by the door," is enlisted in the CIA's elitist espionage program. Upon mastering agency tactics, however, he drops out to train young Chicago blacks as "Freedom Fighters." As a story of one man's reaction to ruling-class hypocrisy, the book is autobiographical and personal. As a tale of a man's reaction to oppression, it is universal.

A lot of the things in the book , I adapted to my own life. Such as waking up early in the morning, reading a book or articles about notable figures, events or developing an assortment of new skills that could help me currently or in the near future.
I won't spoil the ending of both the movie or the book. But I will say they both will satisfy you.
Since the character Freemen was astute in the martial arts was I. I'm considering retraining in it sometime soon.
