Overview

"The Kwame Sutra," is "a one-stop shop for all of Kwame's best BS," says top-rated morning radio show host Drew Lane. This new book from Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters M.L. Elrick and Jim Schaefer captures Kwame Kilpatrick as no one ever has. In his own words, including never-before-published quotations, the former mayor of Detroit reveals himself in many ways: Liar, Lothario and, yes, leader. Through public pronouncements, candid asides, unscripted outbursts and secret text messages, "The Kwame Sutra" provides a 3-D portrait of Detroit's youngest elected mayor, from his stunning rise to power to the self-induced, cataclysmic crash that landed him in the Wayne County Jail. It's all here, in graphic detail, in the man's own words, in one handsome volume.

I promptly returned this book after I received it because it was not what I thought it was. I thought it would give some insight to crimes committed by Mr. Kilpatrick, but the book was full of quotes and off-the-wall irrevelent information. Total waste of money.

I live in the Detroit Metropolitan area, so Kwame is still ALL OVER THE NEWS! He can't go a week without being involved in some kind of story, it's kind of crazy but it has left us with some interesting quotes. This book was written by two reporters in Detroit. They have gone through interviews in both TV and newspaper media to find the greatest quotes from the now infamous Kwame Kilpatrick. Some of the quotes make you think "What was he thinking?" and others make you think "Did he really say that?" I know everyone makes mistakes, I am far from perfect. But it's not as interesting to read what I say as it is to read quotes from someone who is mildly famous now. It was entertaining, but I probably wouldn't read it again. I'm kind of sick of hearing about Kwame and wish that the news would find something new to talk about.
