This is the story of two young men named Wes Moore who lived very different lives. The two Wes Moores live only blocks from each other in Baltimore. They both had very similar childhoods--no father, spent time on street corners, problems with the law. While one Wes Moore grew up to be an honored war veteran, White House Fellow, business professional, Rhodes scholar and author of this book, the other Wes Moore grew up to be a convicted murder.
The Other Wes Moore is a fascinating exploration of the differences between these two Wes Moores and the social science behind it. Telling a real-life story filled with successes, struggles and failures, this revealing autobiography is full of heart.
