I would listen the the book again because it helped me understand the Civil Rights movement and and the value one person can contribute to a cause.
I very much appreciated the fact that Claudette, as one young girl was willing to stand up against the establishment and accepted norm of the day for something she knew to be right. Claudette's family also deserve much of the credit as they were willing to support her in her willingness to testify knowing they could be potentially hurt physically by doing so.
I found the book to be enjoyable and valuable as it helped me understand a part of our American History.
I would listen to Sugar Busters again because I know there is much that I have not retained. I found the book to be a wonderful source of needed info as how to take control of my recently diagnosed Diabetes.
I do not know of any other books to compare Sugar Busters to.
Nothing to write home about , but he did an effective job as narrator.
yes because of the information I was getting.
In 4 weeks, by following Sugar Busters, I have dropped 21 pounds and lowered my fasting Sugar rate from 221 to 88. And that is with being allowed by my doctor to not take the medication he prescribed. In one month time my Ac1 score went from 9.2 to 7.9, and I know on my next test it will continue to go down as it is an average over several months.I would recommend the book to anyone that is interested in loosing weight and or drop their sugar levels. I have not felt deprived with my new eating habits, removing sugar is not that hard when you can eat most other non white foods. As soon as I get my Ac1 down to 5.6 I will no longer consider myself Diabetic, what a wonderful thought.
Yes I would, If people like short stories I think they would enjoy the stories found in this book.
Since the book is made up of a number of short stories, there were fun endings plus one of the books had an ending which should be a meaningful message to some of us as we make our livings. Making it very clear that even though we may be good at what we do, we had better look at the moral and ethical things we do and how it could hurt the lives of others.
I thought John Grisham did a good job as an narrator.
I am sure there are a number of these stories that could be made into a movie. I think the story about Lawyer Wade would be the first one I would suggest. The tag line could be,
"An extremely talented and successful Attorney learns how he has devastated the lives of an innocent family."
My only complaint was that I thought several of the stories ended rather abruptly. Unlike a book that usually ends with all the questions being answered, these were more likely to leave us with the opportunity to wonder where the stories went after the end.But I did enjoy all of the stories.
