Synopsis : Former Democratic congressman and pastor of one of America's largest, most prosperous churches, Floyd Flake inspires us to pull ourselves up by the bootstraps, turn obstacles into springboards, build stronger families and communities, and make our dreams come true.
Review: The Reverend Floyd Flake, a former U.S. congressman from Queens, New York, is an African American hero in the tradition of great black leaders who worked with all that was available to them--surpassing both racism and low expectations. Flake describes bootstrapping as "a process of achieving success by making it against the odds, through self-directed action. It is a mindset that allows you to rise over and above the ordinary and become an extraordinary person by taking responsibility for your thoughts.... It is a value system that directs your relationship with yourself, your neighbors and the environment." By means of his own experiences, Flake identifies the nine steps of bootstrapping, from "Know Yourself" to "Create a Lasting Legacy." His principles may sound like common sense to some and marching orders to others, but given the sociological and political psychobabble about the imagined intellectual and moral shortcomings of African Americans, Flake's timeless words of wisdom are potent antidotes to the often-lax attitudes that pervade our times. --Eugene Holley Jr.
