I'm torn. As a book that changed the course of my life, one that find myself reading about once a decade, as a book that stands for something that I needed to hear, I have it 8 stars out of 5. However as literature, as an example of great writing, I give it 3 stars out of 5. In the end the impact of the book on me and others I know, outweighs the means in which it is delivered.
