    The Autobiography of Malcolm X


    Attempting to abridge such a figure, such an autobiography into a few prosaic words, and still emerge with a just review is a vain exercise. I shall shirk such an attempt from the outset. Be that as it may, I shall proceed to say in my nonetheless hackneyed words, what the book and the person were to me. I shall not fear re-inventing the wheel for this man's own life was that of re-invention.
