This is an amazing book. It is funny, emotionally charged, sad, happy, exciting and calm all at the same time. I cannot wait to read the next installment of Maya Angelou's autobigraphy. SHe writes in a way that is beautiful and inspiring, but also that is easily accesible and honest. One of the best books I have read, and definitely the best autobiography so far.
