New York Times best-selling, award-winning author, actor, and motivational speaker Hill Harper invites listeners to join the conversation about the breakdown of the African-American family. The black community of past generations found strength in families, but today’s black children have less than a one in three chance of being raised in a two-parent household. Harper’s search for answers to this phenomenon is an enlightening and empowering journey.

I thought it was mostly opinion- based, but from an eye-opening male perspective. There were also plenty of interesting statistics. I would read it again.

This book is a must read for anyone interested in civil rights, women's right's or more broadly human rights. It also gives a nuanced and eye opening account of life for women in Saudi Arabia. I was entertained and educated. Thank you for sharing your story!

Esther Perel takes on tough questions, grappling with the obstacles and anxieties that arise when our quest for secure love conflicts with our pursuit of passion. She invites us to explore the paradoxical union of domesticity and sexual desire, and explains what it takes to bring lust home.

Made me rethink many of my basic assumptions about sex and relationships and reexamine my own desires from those things. Meaty with a depth backed up by facts and anecdotes. A worthwhile listen/read.
