I liked the fact that he educated himself in prison and he was able to do this all by himself. He talks about how he accomplished so much in prison like on page 251 where he says that: "I don't think anybody ever got more out of going to prison than i did. Infact, prison enabled me to to study far more intensively than i would have if my life had gone differently." He goes on to say that there are many distractons in colleges now and that there was no other placfor him to have attacked his ignorance but in prison which was where he made a difference in his life by studying for 15 hours in a day.

"Malcolm X was determined to make a difference in his life and he accomplished this through his efforts to become a better person while he was in prison."
