Overview

A New York Times bestseller in hardcover, Pulitzer Prize winner Alice Walker’s We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For was called “stunningly insightful” and “a book that will inspire hope” by Publishers Weekly.

Drawing equally on Walker’s spiritual grounding and her progressive political convictions, each chapter concludes with a recommended meditation to teach us patience, compassion, and forgiveness. We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For takes on some of the greatest challenges of our times and in it Walker encourages readers to take faith in the fact that, despite the daunting predicaments we find ourselves in, we are uniquely prepared to create positive change.

The hardcover edition of We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For included a national tour that saw standing-room-only crowds and standing ovations. Walker’s clear vision and calm meditative voice—truly “a light in darkness”—has struck a deep chord among a large and devoted readership.

This book has some real philosophical nuggests, but in general - I got the sense it was published and successful more from the fact of who Alice Walker is and her over all body of work, rather than being a stand-alone stand-out work of its own. It's a good read, but not as "amazing" as the professional reviews lead me to believe. Having said that - a few philosophical nuggets made it worth the price in my mind. Always a gift to have someone make you think about old things in new ways.

This is NOT a story. It is a compolation of talks Alice Walker has given in various places over the years. While it has some interesting tidbits in it, there was a lot of repetition of some themes.
