Not a flawless book, but an interesting read. It was absolutely amazing to read the lengths to which he went to hide his illiteracy. He was obviously intelligent, yet trapped by his reading difficulties. I don't think it is really possible for those (like me) who learned to read almost effortlessly to understand what it is like for someone who struggles with reading. While I cannot condone most of what he did the first 50 years of his life, I can applaud his willingness to finally learn to read and then admit the deceptions and move forward.
