it was amazing

This is the most honest and down-to-earth book I have ever read and one of the most humanistic and uplifting stories of all, not just biographies. If you are a great admirer of Ray's supernatural musical talent, you will be amazed and deeply satisfied by his equally great gift of story-telling and you will appreciate his music even more after you get an insight into his unbelievable life.

But even if you are not familiar with Ray's enormous contribution to contemporary Western culture and music, you will still find plenty of gems to take away with you from this book. Ray Charles' story is a great testament to the resilience and power of the human nature, but it is also a great reminder of all those things we all take for granted in our daily lives. It teaches some of the greatest and best of life's lessons, without even attempting to do so. A must-read!
