The State of White America - 1960-2010 - Coming Apart

Review: Charles Murray takes the reader through the long term changes in American society. I have been noticing many of these changes for years. The book is full of interesting, occasionally surprising and always thought provoking information. Read more

The Four Agreements Toltec Wisdom Collection - 3-Book Boxed Set
The Four Agreements Toltec Wisdom Collection - 3-Book Boxed Set

Review: The book is good but you really need to remember some words that he talks about cause then you have to keep going back to reread what that word meant. They were latin words. I would much prefer just reading English. The book and content is good but really Richard Carlson is much easier reading. Read more

Using the Four Agreements to Master the Dream of Your Life (Toltec Wisdom)
Using the Four Agreements to Master the Dream of Your Life (Toltec Wisdom)

Review: I found it to be very easy to read, enjoyed all the thoughts and found a lot made so much sense to me. I didn't do all the lesson. I just found there were too many. I did what I thought would be most helpful for me. Sometimes too many lesson and we get lost or we lose interest! That is just me! Someone else may enjoy it very much or feel it would help them.It was good to understand how the lessons we learned as children stay in our lives and how we judge ourselves! Sometimes just a little too mu... Read more

The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide - White Rage
The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide - White Rage

Review: i am only giving this 4 stars.
Not because of the research. It is spot on. Its due to the blanket assumption that this rage is directed to all blacks in America.
Middle and Upper middle class black built an insular society parallel to middle and upper middle class whites after slavery. When Jim Crow laws became too invasive, the fight for desegration began. Middle class women didn't ride the buses in Montgomery, but it had to be one because a pregnant girl or a dark skinned poor one was a ... Read more

Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America
Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America

Review: This book really helped me understand the difficulty of spanning the gap between the black culture and the "privileged white." I am white and failed all these years to see that, while do not consider myself discriminatory toward people of color, for sure I have not had to put up with the downcast looks or being pulled over by a cop because I look like I might "cause trouble" or that "might" break a law.

The Fire Next Time
The Fire Next Time

Review: Just a paperback, but powerfully written. I revisit this book ever so often, so as not to forget the damming effects of slavery on the human psyche. This is a sobering revelation of the cruelity of mankind. Read more

Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son - White Like Me
Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son - White Like Me

Review: White Like Me takes no prisoners in exposing this country's sordid racial history and its present-day vestiges, which every thinking person should realize are alive and well—thriving, in fact, under this current administration. He takes an admittedly squirm-worthy subject and makes it superbly understandable through his user-friendly, almost "folksy" chronicle of his personal life experiences of white privilege. I couldn't put this book down, which is usually not the case for me with non-fiction... Read more

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test
The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

Review: I keep thinking I was born at the wrong time. I missed the expatriat scene of Fitzgerald and Hemingway, the Beats, and Kesey and his counterculture scene. Wolfe's book may not be as good as being there, but it does help those of us born far too late to understand and enjoy the scene. Wolfe writes sympathetically and pretty much from the point of view of the Pranksters, as if he had been there for all of it (he wasn't). Wolfe is a fine journalist, and he does a great job here. I think this is a v... Read more
