It's ethnography, not memoir. It's still really great. I loved the audible version too.

for a fan like me, it was required reading

but for everyone else I think it's an engaging read, light on the "evangelism" and a good window into a dude's thought process. plus some eye opening accounts of his own life and others.

I knew he was pivotal to the Civil rights movement but this really brought it home.

I'm sure he's updated it a million times since I read it though. His life was/is amazing.

Dead on examination of the effects of death/grief.

Didion somehow treats death with a kind of Ninja intellectual coldness and distance that gets to the heart of the experience. Recommended.
