This is one of the best biographies/non-fiction books I've ever read. I really think everyone (especially LGBT) interested in humanism, populism, equality, and democracy should read this book. It kept me gripped and fascinated through an entire 8 hour United Airlines flight (no small feet). A long-time hero of mine, Harvey Milk is now solidified in my pantheon of wonderful people. This man was and always will be, an inspiration. Let's hope that after reading this, we all can be inspired to do whatever great things we have inside each of us.
