Be the assertion true, that insanity is the expecting of a different result; while perpetuating the same ideologies and behavior patterns, then insanity is the plight of black Americans, as well as those charged with their education and liberation. This form of insanity is marked by illiteracy, decadent neighborhoods, spiritual ineptitude and social and financial insufficiency. It is the chains that have been passed down from generation to generation irrespective of the Emancipation Proclamation.
It is the reason we gain education, yet not the power to positively alter the circumstances of our people en masse. It is the reason we claim spiritual fortitude, but have no relative impact on our surroundings. It is the reason that you can find entire neighborhoods in black communities where the people who live there own only 0-5% of the businesses and real estate of the community. It is what makes us vulnerable to the designs of spiritual predators and silver tongued politicians. It is the total darkness on which Austin so articulately pens. It is evolving and compounding.
Add, subtract, Multiply & Divide is a very informative read. It makes you think of your accountabilities. The author, C. Phillip Austin, takes you on a journey from the inner city struggle to a journey of self-enlightenment and self-discovery of not only Black men, but there is something for everyone to pull out and apply to an area of their life. He also breaks down situations and backs it up with scripture. He gives the reader the opportunity to can go back and study if need be. I commend Mr. Austin for given black men something positive to relate to, for giving them something to aspire to be; successful.

Life is a formula that we all search to solve, give and take unexpected events to occur. C. Phillip Austin has produced principles to the formula. A must read for all not just the Black Americans. Highly recommendable to the youth giving them a head start!
