BOOK REVIEW: Autobiography of Malcolm X

By Lina Ching

I can honestly say that this book changed my life. Malcolm X is a true legend and has changed the lives of many. From the early years of his life, Malcolm knew that in order to get what he wanted, he needed to make a lot of noise. He grew up in a household with many kids, so he had to make a fuss until he got what he wanted.

Growing up, he learned from a lot of other influences in his life. He had friends both in and out of prison that were good with words, and he admired that. He learned to expand his vocabulary and knowledge of the world through reading. He read so much that he developed the need for eyeglasses.

Despite the controversial reputation that Malcolm X has, he has some very wise insights on life. He doesn't impose his way of life on others. Rather, he shows them the way that he lives, and believes that others will naturally inspect it and be drawn to it themselves.

Unfortunately Malcolm X was assassinated, but his legend still lives on. He started out on a path that he decided he didn't like, and was humble enough to admit that he had been living his life in a bad way. He figured out the changes he wanted to make, and took the necessary steps to make them. He is truly inspirational, and the thing I like most about him is that despite how much he talked and planned, he was a man of action. Everything he felt strongly about, he did something about. In a world where people talk a lot and posture a lot, that's truly admirable.
