Before I read 'Personal Odyssey', I had read many of Sowell's works, including 'Knowledge and Decisions'. However, reading his autobiography connected all of the dots. Not only was the book a fascinating read about the life of an intellectual, but additionally I gained a better understanding of why Sowell's mind works the way it does. The reader will note the many experiences in Sowell's life that led him to realize much of the way the world works, with all of its its backward notions, is due to the fallacies spewed by the left and others. So, I encourage any fan of Sowell to read his life, or, for that matter, any liberal who thinks that much of the minority state can be attributed to the 'injustice' of 'society' or 'whites'. Sowell is the perfect example of a person who thought for himself and actually checked the facts before buying into the victimhood hype.
