What little material that's included here is great. It's truly inspiring stuff that makes you wish for much more. Which is the problem. Despite a price tag that suggests something much more substantial, this is little more than a very slim booklet, and it includes a small handful of Dr. King's speeches. In fact, sometimes the introductory material is nearly as long as the speech it presents. To make matters worse, the comments rarely are particularly illuminating; sometimes it's hard to even see the connection between the speech and the person writing the introduction. There are some real gems here, but not enough to make the book worth buying.

This historical collection of the public speeches of Martin Luther King Jr. is a treasure for Americans and people all over the world. He is still teaching his message of truth, peace, and justice. The dramatic emotional connection you get when hearing his voice deliver these messages is an important way to learn about recent history.

I was born in 1947. I once heard Dr. King speak at UCLA when I was a student there in the 1960's. He, like his mentor Mohandas Gandhi, were remarkably wonderful men. Such peaceful men were murdered by assassins bullets but could not silence them. People can still learn from this fallen leader. Like Gandhi he was never elected to public office yet his words have great impact today while the actions of politicians have failed to achieve their intended goals. Hearing taped recordings of his live speeches is a treat.

Way too short. Needs to include more speeches and additional stories and quotes from Dr. King himself for further study.

I am reading this simultaneously with Walter Wink's "The Powers that Be". Together these two authors are transforming my world outlook. Dr. King realized that no effort to improve living conditions of humans is possible without improving them for all humanity. Dr. King also realized that such efforts require the full cooperation of society, including faith communities, governments, armies, industrialists and average citizens. In addition, we must work within the frame work of our world as created by God. He marvelously weaves Biblical history, world events, local events, physical pain and emotional struggle into each and every speech.

The book and package it arrived in were both damaged through the shipping process. I was going to return the book so called Powells books. The customer service they provide is outstanding, very personable caring people! Instead of returning the book and getting another one, since this was the last one they returned my money and I was told to keep the book. The book was definitely supposed to be mine. Thank you so much I can't wait to read it and share with others. Keep doing great things for others!

This is a valuable yet small collection of some of Rev. King's lesser known but poignant messages, not including the I Hava Dream Speech. Just as valuable are each Introduction by significant voices.

Wonderful remberence of some of his speeches. It's the type of book one can pick up any time and go to whatever section they want. I especially liked the intros which set the tone/time of the speech, so one could relate with what was going on at the time. Truly Dr. King is one of the greatest orators of all time.
Excellent!!!
