Overview

Unabridged version of The Mis-Education of the Negro, by Carter Godwin Woodson, offered here for chump change. An underappreciated classic, anyone studying influence, the psychology of persuasion, or social controls would do well to study this book.

Woodson states it straight and deserves greater study by all in power, “When you control a man's thinking you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He will find his 'proper place' and will stay in it.”

For those that read The Art of War, The Prince, Meditations, or How to Win Friends and Influence People, this book, The Mis-Education of the Negro, should be added to their book shelf of classics

I took a shot in the wind at picking this book to begin my quest for "re-discovery" and I could not believe the impact it had on my life. There will not be any one person who reads this book to the end who will not understand the need for self-improvement. It has become a very profound encouragement that someone over one-hundred years ago could aide me in being a better member to our social relationships. I now have the desire to speak of facts that I have learned, rather than defend my past blindly. Amazing how one can provide an intellectual reasoning, in support of God's Law, that promotes this type of "uprising" in myself. Carter G. Woodson gave to the world, a way to make a difference in our communities. I encourage everyone who views this rating to "take a shot in the wind", you will not be displeased. An absolute must read for anyone who seeks a need to change!

This was such a great book that everyone can learn from especially those of the black race. It was very informative and written well, and I'd read it again.
