Recommends it for: those who enjoy biographies
Shelves: reviewed, fact
Well, it was okay as far as biographies go. It told the story of his life, that is to say, without too much biographical anguish.

I must say, he may have been a rather interesting and pivotal being, but I fail to see why it is that he is considered a hero of The Faith, as indicated in this book. Ah well.

I knew about Mr. Carver, but had no idea about all his accomplishments. Amazing, considering the times when he lived. This book is a very easy read and will give anyone a glimpse into his life.

Good story of one of the most amazing stories of an influential scientist. Definitely tailored towards children.

Mandatory reading for Americans. This is an alternate view of what race relations might have been like had different people taken control of the black movement.
