Malcolm X's searing memoir belongs on the small shelf of great autobiographies. The reasons are many: the blistering honesty with which he recounts his transformation from a bitter, self-destructive petty criminal into an articulate political activist, the continued relevance of his militant analysis of white racism, and his emphasis on self-respect and self-help for African Americans. And there's the vividness with which he depicts black popular culture--try as he might to criticize those lindy hops at Boston's Roseland dance hall from the perspective of his Muslim faith, he can't help but make them sound pretty wonderful. These are but a few examples. The Autobiography of Malcolm X limns an archetypal journey from ignorance and despair to knowledge and spiritual awakening. When Malcolm tells coauthor Alex Haley, "People don't realize how a man's whole life can be changed by one book," he voices the central belief underpinning every attempt to set down a personal story as an example for others. Although many believe his ethic was directly opposed to Martin Luther King Jr.'s during the civil rights struggle of the '60s, the two were not so different. Malcolm may have displayed a most un-Christian distaste for loving his enemies, but he understood with King that love of God and love of self are the necessary first steps on the road to freedom. --Wendy Smith

Pressestimmen

“Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different. His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer force of will.”—Barack Obama, Dreams from My Father

“Extraordinary . . . a brilliant, painful, important book.”The New York Times
 
“A great book . . . Its dead level honesty, its passion, its exalted purpose, will make it stand as a monument to the most painful truth.”The Nation
 
“The most important book I’ll ever read, it changed the way I thought, it changed the way I acted. It has given me courage I didn’t know I had inside me. I’m one of hundreds of thousands whose lives were changed for the better.”—Spike Lee
 
“This book will have a permanent place in the literature of the Afro-American struggle.”—I. F. Stone

Malcolm X is truly a powerful, significant, and essential work for all time. Why? Because you are able to witness how a man suffered from the effects of prejudice and his whole disposition was formed from it. You see how a very angry man stays angry at the "white devils" for most of his life. However, the unique aspect of Malcolm X is that he changed his views towards the end with the realization that his religion and own understanding gave him. This book serves as a learning experience, for one learns not only about racism and a mans struggle with it, but how to listen and read with a open mind. Many people get very offended at what Malcolm says and I can relate. However, your purpose as a reader should not be to judge Malcolm, but just listen to what he has to say, and learn from his experience. Knowledge, insight, and power of personal change are all gained from this story. I cannot stress enough the importance of having his autobiography in your memory. A highly recommended read.

Before I read this book, I had a negative feeling about Malcolm X. Then I realized I didn't know anything about him. I don't like to pass judgement without being informed, so I decided to read this book. I didn't know what to expect. I read the book with a completely open mind. Anybody reading it would have to do so, or you won't get anything out of it. I now have a better understanding of what would make a black man view white people as "devils." I understand that black pride is not about being anti-white, but about overcoming the overwhelming odds that are stacked up against a Black American. I would recommend this book to anyone. I don't think there's a person in the world who couldn't learn something from it. For me, it was an entirely new viewpoint. I think a lot about race, but from MY perspecitve, as a white teenage girl who exclusively dates black men. That makes me deffensive about black people talking bad about "the white man." But I put down my deffenses and objectively read what turned out to be the most influential book I've ever read. After reading this book, I don't see how anybody could feel anything toward Malcolm X other than a deep admiration and respect.

Malcolm X (born 1925) became one of the most influential black leaders of the 20th century, however he left no writings except this biography. His philosophy is known almost entirely from the countless speeches and interviews he gave between 1952 until his death in 1965. Many of those speeches, especially from the last year of his life, were recorded and have been published. It was often said that he was the only man in America who could start a race riot - or stop one. "I don't know," Malcolm X said when asked about this, "If I could start one, I don't know if I'd want to stop one." He was angry, "the angriest black man in America," he called himself. His contempt for the refinement of speech and vivid oratory, he was the black leader who expressed perhaps better than any other the fury and despair that had built up at the bottom of the social pyramid.

During his last two years Malcolm X succeeded to find meaning of the life he lived, a remarkable achievement considering his incredibly busy schedule. During long evenings, burning the midnight oil, he would visit Alex Haley's Greenwich Village studio and talk half the night - and then rise a few hours later to plunge again into his daily battle. Slowly the talks progressed, over countless cups of coffee lightened with cream - "the only thing I like integrated" - and slowly Malcolm X emerges as a surprisingly sensitive personality that defies his public image in thoughtful ways. By the time the book was completed just before his death, he had wrought something far beyond the initial purpose. Rarely has there been a volume about which it can be more fittingly said: Touch this book and you touch a man.

When I was first told by my Ethics teacher (I'm a high school Junior) that our syllabus would include The Autobiography of Malcolm X, I questioned why. Why in a course of ethics, would we study Malcolm X? As we delved into the book, I realized that it was an integral part of our studies. Malcolm's plight was a slap in the face, especially from my point of view. My first reaction to his "rants" on white america, was pure anger, I felt his vast generalizations to be demeaning and insulting, and if it had not be required reading, I would have probably put the book down. I am thankful that I didn't, because it has opened my eyes, and I believe that every person, regardless of religion, race, or creed, needs to experience this book, and examine Malcolm's life as a hustler to a martyr. My views will forever be changed by the words of Alex Haley, and the amazing story of Malcolm X.

First of all, what kind of autobiography is written by someone other than the subject of the autobiography? That would be like me writing the autobiography of President Clinton. The proper word here is biography NOT autobiography. Poor Malcom. He spends an entire life learning the obvious. I was not impressed. Of course, anger is a dead end. Of course, the Muslims aren't all they would like us to think they are. Of course, a life of petty crime is a dead end. If he had actually shut up for a while and listened to other people, he could have saved himself a lot of trouble, and maybe still be alive. But some people are so dense they will not listen but need to hit their heads against the wall over and over again. These are the unteachable ones who need to reinvent the wheel rather than borrow it.
