      Although the book was free, there are considerable errors in the last chapter with respect to the figures that Dr. Washington provides regarding the progress of Tuskegee. Please note that I am am also following along with an audio-book which gives other numbers. I would double check this online version with a print version.

      An amazing story of one man's dedication, perseverance and hard work and unimaginable success - against all odds - in uplifting the black race and thereby inspiring the whole human race to find joy by serving others. This book is so well-written and extremely interesting that it keeps you captivated as you follow Booker T. Washington from slave to great leader of not only the black race, but of the whole human race.
    • A valuable read

      This book's greatest value is twofold. It gives insight into the struggles of slavery and reformation during and following the Civil War. Secondly it illustrates the teaching of pupils to embrace hard work and self respect, plus teaching all people of the value of supporting such efforts. While the writing style is dated, the message is as true today as it was then. My only criticism is that Mr. Washington spends too much time quoting sources that praise him. However, I am sure the praise is well deserved, and I wish we had more people like him around today.

      THIS IS A MUST HAVE ! TRUELY ! IT’S INEXPLICABLE HOW TO DESCRIBE THIS LITERATURE & THE EXPERIENCE NOT TO MENTION THE BLINDED FAITH OF ONE’S DREAM TO ARISE LITERALLY FROM THE BOTTOM UP ! BUT MORE ADMIRABLE IS THAT NOT ONLY DID ARISE FROM THE BOTTOM UP BUT BROUGHT A WORLD CLASS ALONG WITH HIM! MR. WASHINGTON MAKES ME SO PROUD! I AM FROM DOMINICAN DESCENT BUT THIS FAITH THAT BLINDED HIM TO SUCCESS MAKES ME PROUD AS AN EDUCATOR OF CHILDREN, AS A COLLEGE STUDENT AND AS A HUMAN BEING TO CARE SO MUCH FOR ONE’S RACE AMONG OTHER AND COMING TOGETHER FOR THE SAME CAUSE: TO ARISE ! :D IT’S A MUST READ FOR THE AUDIENCE TO BELIEVE MY PERSPECTIVE ! TRUELY INSPIRATIONAL !
    • Worlds most boring book - piece of trash

      Had to read this for a history class. Even the teacher said it was boring but we need to read it. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME THIS BOOK IS TRASH I WOULD RATHER READ POEMS ALL DAY THAN HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK AGAIN. This book is trash, do not get. Would give it 0 stars if I could. There is much better ways to use your time. I would rather read through my whole history book because it would be 100 times more interesting than this piece of trash!
