The narrator pauses in odd locations and puts inflection where I wouldn't expect it. sometimes i have to rewind, get the wording and pronounce it in a manner I'm used to in order to understand. His voice itself its great.
This needs to be required reading for every student, judge, politician, or any elected official. Phenomenal work. As a psychologist, I was particularly impressed with the author's modeling of introspection, vulnerability, and his own "doing the work."
Race baiting at it's finest. In a political climate that yearns for clarity, understanding and healing, Kendi presents the reader with one lens to view the world: "anti-racist" or racisct. Kendi then expects the reader to grapple with this binary and see racism in literally every aspect of human interaction and government policy. There is nothing new here. In fact, this is overwrought, played out propaganda, similar to other "anti racist" books making the rounds these days.
Excellent primer on the history of racism and author defines and compares racism and anti-racism. Author is the narrator and speaks in a calm neutral tone to explain his points without making the reader feel guilty or defensive. I truly enjoyed and recommend this book.
wonderful to have the authors voice
packed with facts we need and emotional responses to them we really need
I LOVE this book. I feel more informed, and agreed with pretty much everything Ibram X Kendi had to say that wasn't already a fact. I wish this book was required reading for all businesses and schools. I think sharing the vulnerability of his journey is brave and honest. I hope many get inspired to do the same self investigation.
Simply fantastic and necessary!
Eye opening and powerful! Must read!
Really important book
Some fresh thinking polluted by Marxist inspired victim mentality. Read cautiously.
I started reading this when it first came out. I couldn't finish it. I donated the book to my local library. I figured someone would like its filter shaded "information".
Awful pretentious & definitely in the vein of Marxism
A very heartwarming story.
Let me start by saying that the book and content are excellent. Additionally, when a book is non-fiction and/or memoir, I prefer to hear it in the author’s own voice. However, in the case of this book, I am not enjoying listening to the author read his own story. I have heard podcasts and seen videos where Dr. Kendi spoke and he was quite engaging. I’m finding his style of reading choppy and extremely distracting. I purchased a hardcover copy and I am reading it. I really wish I could get a refund on this purchase.
