Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

A good performer makes you feel like you're privy to something memorable--a great one beckons you into his world and welcomes you as a necessary part of the work's success. Ta-Nehisi Coates's delivery of his own book is so memorable because the material is charged with emotion and a tone of self-disclosure. There's also a highly personal sense of connection between himself and his audience because of his frequent use of "you." The book may be directed to Coates's son, but the conviction of Coates's delivery underscores the importance of the race relations examined within its pages.
