I have read this book twice in the last year and each time I am more inspired to achieve greatness as a black man in America. Mr. Washington's autobiography shows not only desire for his own education, but for his family and the betterment of all African Americans during the Reconstruction period. One of the most interesting parts of this book, Mr. Washington describes a scene, which took place over one hundred years ago, that is still continuing today in the African American community. The time for excuses is over. We are living in an era that our ancestor's dreamed and prayed to see. If Mr. Washington can achieve all that he did in his short time on earth, then others who live in this less oppressed society can do more than what we have done for the betterment of our present and future.

I believe this is one of the most inspiring peices of African American literiture. This autobiography of Booker T. Washington tells ofhis quest tp get an education despite all of his boyhood oppressions and turmoil. I think this is wonderful book becuase it gives you a new found respect for educators and people who want to be educated. I belive a person cannot read this book and not share in it's pride, dedication and morals of Booker. Being bornas a slave and to become what he became was such a magnificent feat for the African American race at that time. I believe whoever reads this book will feel inspired to strive for the best they can at whatever there doing. I think if everybody had the mindset of Booker T. Washington, then the world would be a better place for us, and the next generation to follow. In other words, I would recomend this book to people that need inspiration and enlightenment on achieving goals!

Washington has some very important arguments that are just as useful to incorporate into contemporary life as it was important back then.

This book was formatted very poorly.  It was too distracting even for a free book.
