My mom was one of the southern African Americans who made the trip to Boston all those years ago. She never talked about her trip and her reasons for leaving. I never asked. This books brings incredible insight into her story and ultimately my history. I would recommend it to all, but in particular those who wonder what struggles your parents who migrated from the south all those years ago may have been like.
I would. David and Goliath was extremely informative and as usual with Gladwell's books creates a different way to think of the world that has practical applications with everyday life.
I loved the story about why going to an Ivy League school may be bad for you or your child.
Yes. I could not put it down
It is a book that will deliver.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. It is a lesson in why Clinton would have been a better option than Obama and why JFK was probably all style and little substance.
How clever Johnson was in passing the the civil rights act of 1964
The assassination of JFK and how even then people knew that something was wrong with the lone gunman theory.
One of the great novels of any genre, but if you love the civil war you are in for a ride.
It started a little slow, but while sitting on the train Something was said and I could not stop listening. You won't be able to stop listening, the characters are tragic but inspirational. You Wont Be Able To Stop Listening
I was once a huge fan, then he became in my opinion a great disappointment. This book renewed my faith in Obama although named "The Obamas" it is really about Michelle. You find out that he still holds the values that sent him to the white house, but as always things are more complicated than they seem.
If you are a fan or once was this book will sit with you and you will respect him again.
A great book! Rarely am I so moved and captivated by a book that I can not get a book out of my mind. A dog lover myself, I now look at my dog and wonder what he understands
Mesmerizing, fascinating, insightful, and just plain good. As far as Stephen King goes, one of the very best, couple that with a great narrator and you have a timeless audible classic.
I love Apple so by default I love Jobs. I say this as a disclaimer but also because after reading this book it is my honest opinion that Steve Jobs was probably insane but that makes him no different that most people of amazing genius. You will find in this book a great bio of a man you will find complex and strange and after finishing you will respect him, but I am not sure if you like him or even want him in your life, just his products.
The story is told through the eyes of a 13 year old girl but it falls flat as the author tries to recreate a weird version of Juno except in hell. It is really the rambling craziness of a 13 year old girl, nothing profound. I would pass.
