Overview

Chocolate Thoughts is a national bestseller that is consistently rated one of the nation’s best African-American books.

A compilation of over 55 short stories, essays and poems from the hearts and minds of Black men, Chocolate Thoughts, provides a refreshing look at the psychological, social, political and economic views that are often held by Black men but not expressed to the general public.

An ESSENCE Bestseller, Chocolate Thoughts offers candid insight and uncompromising truth about how Black men truly feel about themselves, relationships, family, sex, marriage, work, careers, religion, love, money, racism, music, violence and sports. It uniquely captures the commonality of Black men irrespective of their socio-economic background or educational attainment.

No Black man will read "I Won't Bow Down," "Reflections on My Relationship with Love," "Black Men" or "Time Bomb" and not recognize the Black man that he has been, currently is, or has known during his life. Every Black woman after reading "Whose Fault Is It," "Chocolate Thoughts and Almond Questions," "Unfulfilled Desires" and "You Can Get All The Shoes You Want" is guaranteed to gain a deeper understanding of the Black men in her life or missing from her life irrespective of whether or not that Black man is her son, boyfriend, lover, husband, brother, cousin, uncle, friend or significant other.

Being Black can definitely give the reader a connection to Chocolate Thoughts, but anyone irrespective of race or gender will find these writings to be thought-provoking, intimate, captivating, powerful, titillating and engaging.

Chocolate thoughts will satisfy any reader¿s craving for bitter realizations, sweet love, and subtly salty revelations. S. James Guitard takes you on a journey through the mind of a black man in a way that will leave you restless until you open this book and take that same journey again! It¿s not a book you read once and then place on a shelf. It¿s a book that you will read over and over again. I look forward to reading more from this author.

S.J. Guitard's Chocolate Thoughts is a very captivating compillation of thoughts by black men. In its sensual, honest, and straight-forward tone, Chocolate Thoughts educates women on the male's status regarding those issues that are sometimes rarely addressed. This book allows women to step into the minds of the black men in their lives.

Mr. Guitard is a member of metropolitan church in washington, DC. This book of his is amazing. It fans the flames of hope and patience in my heart that there are men who are of GOD and not afraid to express themseves to their female counterparts. 'Dedicated to you' will melt the heart of even the most broken hearted woman! Kudos to a man who so eloquently expresses true love, anger, and all other emotions with clarity, honesty and sensitivity. It is a book that should be in the collection of all seriouse bibliophiles.
