A touching, poignant story of one man's incredible courage to move outside the realm of the "known" in order to discover the truths of racism and ignorance ingrained into Southern society. Growing up in Kentucky in the 60's, I witnessed many of the tragic and gut-wrenching scenarios described in his journey. A brilliant social experiment that exposes the lies of what some believe is "equality." A reminder to us all to keep ourselves in check when dealing with people of different races, religions and nationalities different from our own.
This book held my interest the entire way through. It is quite unsettling to realize how some people you encounter in the world really do not care about others feelings or well-being whatsoever! It was particularly timely for me as my husband and I have just gone through two and a half excruciating years dealing with our daughter's love interest, who ended up being a textbook case of sociopathy. (Needless to say, he completely broke her heart) It's amazing how easily, even with all our experience, it's still possible to be taken by one of these con artists. This book helps you to spot them right away. I highly recommend this book as an informative and insightful listen for all!
I'm a big fan of Campbell and have many of his books. I'm also a fan of Michael Toms and have listened to many of his New Dimensions programs. The first thing that bothered me about this listen was how Toms doesn't seem to realize how he is breathing into the microphone while Campbell is speaking!! He sounds like he's a heavy breather on an obscene phone call!! I managed to get past this somehow but the further I got into the program, I realized that it basically could have been edited down to about an hour and a half. All of the concepts they discuss are REPEATED again and again, sometimes verbatim. Not a complete waste of time but disappointing nonetheless.
Every time I entered a bookstore, I was drawn to this book for some reason and felt compelled to read it. Now I know why. I was very excited to see that "Bones" was offered on Audible and thoroughly enjoyed the book from beginning to end. This is a story about relationships and how those relationships are affected by tragedy and loss, how each of us deals with grief on such a personal level and how the tender thread of sorrow is ultimately what connects us all.
