This is the first time he shares his account of his story in his own words, revealing his thoughts and feelings with details that only he knows, and offering his point of view on how anyone can achieve a better life.

Interesting and inspirational book. Gives the background that wasn't possible in the movie. This would be an excellent book for young people to read, especially if disadvantaged in some way.
