Part of the Penguin Lives short biography series, Frady's work presents a concise and provocative account of the life of King. The prose is intelligent, sometimes poetic, and never boring, and Frady's deep and serious voice sounds surprisingly like that of a professional narrator. The book portrays both the triumphs (the march on Washington) and tragic flaws (reports of womanizing) of a man who is presented as confident publicly and troubled personally, though some King scholars will contest some of the stories cited by Frady.
