Not the most groundbreaking book I have ever read, particularly not for Thomas Sowell. Usually Sowell’s books are dripping with profound insights on every line. But given I love him as an author it was great to read about his background and personal experience. He had a very colourful and unique life, filled with pain and achievement. It is astounding how many jobs from which he resigned because of political interference or conflicting principles. Once he resigned in less than a week! Truly a man of principle, which is certainly something to aim for.
