I not only had the pleasure of reading this book, but also was able to meet Dr. Prothrow-Smith at a lecture she gave on this material. Very inspiring woman who cares imensely about young people and violence. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is into social issues; african american studies; violence in education; etc. a must read.

I READ THIS BOOK AS PART OF MY READING LIST WHILE TAKING A FEW GRAD COURSES AT HARVARD. THIS TEXT WAS PHENOMENAL. IT HAS HEART, HONESTY, AND SIMPLICITY. THE WRITING IS STRAIGHTFORWARD, THE VOCABULARY USED IS A WELCOME RESPITE FROM THE WORLD OF ERSATZ GRIOTS. THIS BOOK WAS WRITTEN BY A FEMALE MEDICAL DOCTOR WHO ADVISES THE REST OF THE AMERICAN POPULACE TO TAKE HEED TO THE TROUBLING WARNING SIGNS OF TEEN/ GANG VIOLENCE. SHE GIVES TIMELY AND USEFUL EXAMPLES OF PROGRAMS AND STRATEGIES THAT TRULY WORK. HER POSITIVE, 'WE EVERDAY CITIZENS CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE' APPROACH HELPED SPUR ME ON TO TAKE POSITVE NEIGHBORHOOD ACTION. THIS IS A LIFE-AFFIRMING BOOK. READ IT AND RE-CONNECT AND BEGIN TO RELATE TO THE REST OF THE VIOLENT AND NOT SO FREE MEMBERS OF OUR SOCIETY. YOU WILL ENJOY EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS BOOK.
