    A Bestseller Waiting to Happpen!

    Think About It! is just the kind of book needed to move private and public discussions of race forward. The book is not just about race. The subtitle is wrong on the website. It is 'For those curious about race and self-discovery.' Think About It! takes a wholistic approach to race by including comments about life. The book is the ONLY question book on the market that divides the book into chapters and easy to reference headings. It makes it so much easier to find questions again. It is also the ONLY question book to include over 100 quotes, one on every page with questions. It has been fun to read and every time I pick it up off my coffee table, I delightfully find something new that I did not see the first time or had not noticed within the question upon the first reading. Think About It! is a treasure find that should be ordered in large quantities so that one can share this fun, thought-provoking volume with friends and family during holidays or non-holidays. I am planning to give the book to everyone for Christmas. If this book gets in the hands of a major publisher like one of the New York publishing houses that publish thousands of titles per year, watch out America, because Think About It! is sure to be on every shelf in almost every home in the US. It is a NY Times Bestseller in the making! I would not be surprised if it sold a million copies in its first year! As you can see, I have nothing but awesome things to say about it. I plan to take the author's advice and use it for diversity training purposes and for a few student groups on my campus.

    One of the Best Books About Race on the Market

    This book is a must-have! I introduced it to my family after Thanksgiving dinner and we learned more about each other in those three fast-moving, fun-filled hours than we have learned in the last ten years! We talked about age and gender-related identities, scientific studies of parallel universes, retirement, investing, and the 'olden days.' I feel closer to them now than ever before, thanks to Think About It! I can't wait for the sequel. If you don't buy this book, the loss is yours! This book is so much more than another piece about race. It is a book for life. Whether it is about childrearing, religion, politics or the body, this book addresses it in some way or another. If you want a book that pretends to have all of the answers, then don't buy this book. Some books try to give all the answers, but this book is for those who want to know what the questions are!
