60. The Education of Kevin Powell: A Boy’s Journey Into Manhood by Kevin Powell
This book is a memoir written by Kevin Powell who you may remember from the first season of the Real World. Although he does touch on that period in his life it’s a very small portion of the book, which covers his entire life starting in childhood. He grew up the son of a single mother who was often abusive in her discipline. He also grew up in poverty something that lasted into his adulthood. Despite the challenges of his childhood he was the first person in his family to attend college, but he struggled with extreme anger that colored his life and was something he had to learn to deal with in order to move forward. If you like these sorts of memoirs this is a decent one. I give it 7 out of 10.
