I'll tell you this: our country could use about 200 million more people with the work ethic of Thomas' grandfather. It's inspiring.
I am several chapters into the book. It is inspiring.
It is also scary that, under his circumstances, he could have easily gone the other way. :tiphat:
I finished the book and highly recommend it. It is really quite an interesting story.

It was amazing how Clarence Thomas was attacked by the liberals because he didn't think the same way as they expected all black people to think. :banghead:

My favorite line from the book is a quote from Clarence Thomas' grandfather:

"Hard times make monkey eat cayenne pepper" :mrgreen:

It's a marvelous read and eye-opening to learn of the details of Thomas' upbringing and to think how they shaped him. Spoiler alert, he was not always a staunch conservative.

Now I'm on to Freakonomics.
:thumbs2: That should be an interesting read.

Re: What are you currently reading?

I hate to be boring, but I am currently reading "The Life of Andrew Jackson" by Robert V. Remini.
I just finished biographies of Woodrow Wilson, James K. Polk and James A. Garfield.
Last month I read "Star Trek Memories" by William Shatner and Chris Kreski. :tiphat:
