This book is a literary masterpiece. It takes complex themes such as racism and injustice and portrays them through the eyes of an innocent naive child. It makes hard to discuss topics very accessible without being belittling or talking down to the reader. Sissy spacek narrates the book flawlessly.

This book is a must read given the current climate of the world. Many of us Canadians feel privileged to live in a country we deem as welcoming and unbiased, but thus book helps educate the listener on the systemic problems many believe to only be an American issue. Passionate stories of those who stood up for not only themselves and others oppressed by the system inspire the listener to take action and help fight for change

This book tells the story of one of the most innovative minds of modern times. It doesn’t shy away from his less flattering moments and characteristics, but opts to portray the person of Steve jobs as opposed to the “figure”. The voice narration keeps you interested even deep into the 22 hour duration.
