Read full description of the books:
I am such a fangirl for this book it is almost embarrassing. There are two particular ways in which it works for me.
One is the voice of the author. Abernathy writes with a rich warmth, and humor for all the seriousness, and is very personable.
In addition, the way he sets out the events of the Civil Rights movement is so clear. The various events are familiar, but he sets them in a context where you understand how some things led to others, and why things happened the way they did. I have studied these events, but I understand them better now.
This is not to say that there are no weaknesses. The focus of the main body of the book starts to wander as we reach the epilogue, catching things up on what happened to him personally after the movement has ended, but it is natural that it would do so. I can also see how some would feel that he takes too much credit for his part, as he and King worked very closely together, despite King being the much more public face. However the account takes nothing away from King's place, and you can easily see the devotion Abernathy felt for King, and his grief at the loss. I would recommend this book to anyone.
