Author Robert Brown uses a soft-spoken tone and steady pace as he reads the prologue of his memoir, both of which narrator Dominic Hoffman picks up on and delivers throughout the bulk of this audiobook. The love of his grandmother, his faith, and his moral code shaped Brown's life, and these shine through as he chronicles his ascent from poverty in the Jim Crow South to a life of achievement as head of a Fortune 500 company and adviser to the Nixon White House and Civil Rights movements at home and abroad. With a nuanced and understated delivery, Hoffman captures the humility and quiet confidence of this unsung hero who eschewed the limelight while working with Dr. King, Bobby Kennedy, and the Mandelas. Hoffman's straightforward presentation and subtle use of emphasis animate an inspiring memoir that offers listeners a unique perspective on a pivotal chapter in our nation's history.
