Review: I have read other books by Dr. Sacks and consider him to be a man of wisdom, insight, and constructive values. This is a nice piece at the end of his life, but nothing particularly remarkable. Rest his soul. Read more

I Am Not Your Negro
I Am Not Your Negro

Review: James Baldwin is not bitter, he testifies to the terrible truth about his family of origin... the people of this nation who hate, mistreat and murder their brothers and sisters of color. We must confess that we are vile, disgusting offspring and beneficiaries of a power system that has favored children. If you love truth, you'll love this book. I am ashamed of my privilege. But, will I voluntarily give it up? Forgive us, Father... we know exactly what we do! Read more

The Classic Autobiography of Growing Up Poor and Black in the Rural South
The Classic Autobiography of Growing Up Poor and Black in the Rural South

Review: Coming of Age offered a perspective into a area of women’s history that you don’t necessarily read about in text books. Throughout the narrative Moody describes her life in the South and her journey as she transforms and becomes a part of not only the womens movement but also the Civil Rights movement.

Her insightful description about how the African American community was split during this time was eye opening. Her antictodes about how part of her family that was lighter skin than her an... Read more

Surviving a Childhood of Abuse - A Brother's Journey

Review: After reading both of Dave Pelzer's books, I wanted to read his brother's. I wanted to see the other side of Dave's abuse. I was, instead, faced with yet another story of abuse by the same mother. While Richard didn't seem to face nearly the torture Dave faced, he claims to have taken his brother's place when the state finally placed his brother in foster care. Read more

The Death and Life of Great American Cities

Review: Especially it occurs to you the spots in the books where you are familiar with. When reading the book, you are always reviewing how we can make the city, make our surrounding area better. A simple idea, e.g. a new restaurant, a new parking lot or a new park, might not be sufficient to boost local economy and vitality. Read more

Robert Moses and the Fall of New York - The Power Broker

Review: Many years ago a power-hungry man, with the biggest ego ever seen in recent times, decided to build a freeway (the Brooklyn/Queens Expressway) right THROUGH my neighborhood. This was done to many dozens of other little enclaves all over New York City. He ruthlessly ordered many people to move-out so that his highways could be built and he destroyed many communities by spliting ethnic enclaves right in two. He also had the audacity to build his highways all along the waterfront just because of h... Read more
