This book is not for the "genteel" reader. This is no rock-a-bye-baby book. In fact, non-African people may feel uneasy reading this book. Shahrazad takes off her shoes and tells the flat-footed truth about every aspect of life in America for people of African descent. And lest one should feel that the author makes generalizations, suffice it to say, "If the shoe fits, wear it." This book should be in every African American home, because there is surely something here for everyone, even those Africans in denial. The journey begins from birth and goes well into adulthood. Did you talk to your children about work ethics, employment vs business ownership choices, credit, not to mention the usual, sex, drugs, getting high, partying, history - yours/ours, renting vs owning a home, traveling options, racism? And that - trust me - is just a few things on the list.
