In this powerful memoir, former slave Frederick Douglass describes his brutal upbringing and eventual escape from slavery. Douglass combines his own experience with his advanced oratory skills to argue for the abolition of slavery.

Long boring a** book
Great piece of literature
Great book! Gives the reader an inside look of the life of a slave in the 19th century. This books is also an amazing piece of literature and full of rich rhetoric.

I read this book in a couple of days and couldn't put it down. I wonder what Mr. Douglas would thing about how things are now thanks to his "humble" efforts.
