Editorial Reviews

David Horowitz author of Radical Son Thomas Sowell is a national treasure. In our time, no one has written more wisely on the issues of culture and race.
Norman Podhoretz author of My Love Affair with America This account of Thomas Sowell's "odyssey" is an indispensable clue to the mystery of how he managed to become the extraordinary man he is and one of the few intellectuals of our time who deserves to be called heroic.
William Julius Wilson Lewis P. and Linda L. Geyser University Professor, Harvard University, and author of The Truly Disadvantaged Thomas Sowell's A Personal Odyssey is a tour de force. After reading this very engaging and well-written memoir, readers will clearly understand why Sowell, a man who does not sacrifice his principles, is one of the most provocative and influential public intellectuals in the last half century.
