An interesting read that skillfully appeared like an authentic non fictional account until the final chapters. The author obviously had some experience in the subject matter. An enjoyable enough read.
I read this book at age 10. And I imeadiately read it again and again. It had a profound impact on me. In retrospect it shaped thereafter, how I was to relate to the less fortunate. I am now 68. I highly recommend it to all parents.
Absolutely loved the What is Man essay. The essence of human nature so captured in the dialog between the old man & the young man.
I wish I read this when I was growing up. They should include this in the reading selections in High School.
