I came away with a new respect for Clarence Thomas. I listened to the audio version and it was something special to hear the author read his work. Great stuff! ( )

After reading his story, I can understand now why he doesn't say much in the Supreme Court...he probably doesn't trust that his words won't be twisted to meet someone else's political agenda! His determination to work hard and succeed despite society's low expectations is an example for all. ( )

I really enjoyed learning more about Clarence Thomas in this book. Previously, I knew very little about him and I liked learning more from his own words. I enjoyed learning about his growth as a person and the development of his ideals. It is humbling to hear about the poverty he endured as a child and even throughout much of his life. I found it intriguing to learn of his take on race relations and the transformation of his own opininions based on his life experiences. This book made me want to read more books on politics and to learn more about the leades of our country. ( )

First portion of the memoir provides lots of insight into Thomas' upbringing and the extraordinary difficulties, including poverty and lack of family stability he survived, and the freedom from those difficulties that religion, hard work, and education promised him. His gratitude to teachers and family for requiring much of him is clear, as is his angst and anger during his college years and his regrets for his having held others in contempt during his black panther-supporting college years etc. The final portion of the book which concerns his Supreme Court confirmation hearings and the Anita Hill debacle lack the clarity that the earlier portions of the book have. I think that he's just still so angry and hurt by that process that he is unable to provide the same combination of objective and subjective analysis that make the other portions of the book successful.
