(AJC) — Much has been written about Andrew Young — preacher, top aide to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., former congressman, U.N. ambassador and a former Atlanta mayor. But his latest, best-selling book, “Walk in My Shoes: Conversations Between a Civil Rights Legend and His Godson on the Journey Ahead” (Palgrave MacMillan, 256 pages), offers a disarmingly unvarnished look at the man, warts and all. Written with Kabir Sehgal, Young’s 27-year-old investment banker godson whose relationship with “Uncle Andy” stems two decades, Young, now 78, offers advice and meditations on everything from the civil rights movement and today’s politics to finance and the importance of marrying the right person.
