Dr Thomas Mensah's "The Right Stuff Comes in Black" is an autobiography in its own class. I was as enchanted with his real life story as I have been by the many accomplishment the man has accumulated. Very inspiring It's a cliché, to be sure, but Dr Mensah's humble beginning gave him the Right Stuff: roots and direction. He gained the self-confidence and security from his father and with his brilliant mind, made great friends and colleagues along the way. Achieving fiber optic innovation that has changed humanity for the better is not a small feat. Yet, he never strayed too far from the values he learned so early on, and even though he lives in a world very far removed from the one he was born into, he remained humble and a relevant intellectual. The book is very inspiring; I will probably read it again. Thank you, Dr Mensah for sharing your knowledge, determination and incredible talent with us and the world.
