    1. This book is part bio, part informed fictionif that makes any sense. The author, Clarence Jones was a close friend and advisor of Martin Luther King Jr he had a hand in writing many of MLK's most famous speeches. Jones gives readers alot of interesting anecdotal background about MLK that really helps to flesh out the man behind the legendary moniker. Using his intimate knowledge of King's thoughts and rationale, Jones presents what he believes would be King's opinions on many of today's pressing [...]



    2. Clarence Jones speaks his mind but I would caution him in publishing something that only gives white people more ammunition when it comes to Civil Rights issues. He blames his own race for many of the issues they face. I know a lot of white conservatives who would love this book, and that scares me.



    3. This book looked like an interesting read when I found it at the library a couple months ago. It did turn out to be an interesting read. However, I had one major qualm with this book. Mostly, I guess the whole premise, though intriguing, is a bit maddening. It would be interesting to think about what Martin Luther King, Jr. *might* say about some of the issues we face in our world today. However, at the same time, part of me thinks that maybe it's best not to put words in another person's mouth, [...]


    4. Very well written book and someone who knen Martin Luther King, Jr. as well as anyone I suppose. Interesting perspective in Mr. Jones' writing in that he tells the story as he beleives MLK would have seen different current issues such as racisim, terrorism, affirmative action and others. Very provocative.


    5. Having seen how so many have co-opted M L King's words for there particular political or social agenda, it is refresing to interpret through those who lived, prayed, suffered and worked with M L King what his response to todays issues might be. This opens a vision of Martin L King that is ignored by the "black leaders" & the mainstream media in todays culture.


    6. I heard Clarence Jones speak about this book and bought it> He was a wonderful speaker and I gained insight from reading his book.
