Here’s an interesting audiobook by an author who is not usually mentioned when the subject is race relations in America. From this point on, he should be. Abdul-Jabbar traveled the country as a basketball star, and his experiences then, and in his active next life, inform this work. He writes thoughtfully but forcefully, and he deserves to be heard. Narrator Ben Adduchio doesn’t quite match the author’s passion and tone, reading with a rather plain, mild voice. He pronounces every word, but it sounds like he’s, well, reading the book, rather than interpreting and expanding its message. Abdul-Jabbar’s message does get through, but Adduchio could have been more emotive in his delivery. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2017]
