More About the Author

Jacqueline S. Homan (1967 - ) was born in Philadelphia, PA into chronic, generational poverty. Orphaned and homeless at 13, she struggled to survive in America's permanent underclass. She graduated from college with a Bachelor's degree in mathematics as a non-traditional aged student at the age of 34 -- the very first in her family to graduate from high school and college. Her speaking engagements include the October 2009 international human rights conference in London, UK.

Her first book, Classism For Dimwits, is a social and political critique that shatters the myth of the American Dream and exposes America's ugliest secret: Middle and upper class American's cruelty towards (and utter hatred for) the poorest of the poor in America who can't just "bootstrap" their way onto the lowest rung of middle classdom without a real safety net.

After Classism For Dimwits, she authored and published three more nonfiction books centering on contemporary social justice issues: Eyes of a Monster, Nothing You Can Possess, and her most recent and most provocative, Divine Right: The Truth is a Lie.

She is also involved with CAUS (Citizens Against Utility Shut-offs) and various other poor people's human rights campaigns.

"Nothing You Can Possess" by Jacqueline S. Homan is a fabulous, eye-opening read. The chapters on the maquilladoras and the girls/women raped and killed either walking home or after being fired is heartbreaking. The world out there is not what we think it is and Ms Homan brings this home in her book. All over the world, people die because those who have so much want it all.

Don't let the comments indicating that those who might have purchased this book to find out about rumoured death camps put you off. I don't know if they exist, but after reading this book and others, I certainly wouldn't be surprised. Those at the very top do not want us to have anything...this becomes more and more clear every day.

I highly recommend this book since it is a real eye-opener.

By the way, I think that the cover is actually pretty appropriate. That drab world is what is intended for us.

Format: Paperback
Jacqueline Homan's third book shows a fresh young author maturing into a more detail-oriented nonfiction subject: America's economic history and the far-reaching effects it has had on our culture. Ms. Homan is a dedicated crusader for the common man. Although her first two books pitched a more personal perspective on similar subjects, Nothing You Can Possess digs up all the research analyzing the root causes of poverty and discrimination throughout our nation's history, from the funding of The Holocaust to the stock market crashes of the modern era.

The historical research behind this book is obvious, although I am not so impressed by its cover or title, both of which seem lackluster to me. Underneath the bland façade, Nothing You Can Possess is overflowing with the author's passion for her subject matter. The book has additional weaknesses, such as a noticeable but tolerable lack of attentive proofreading and a high cover price without a Kindle option, but Ms. Homan has once again impressed me with her dedication to her important subject matter. Ralph Nader, one of my old heroes, has been around for a long time, and the world could use a new voice for the downtrodden. Jacqueline Homan brought herself up from extreme poverty to become the author and businesswoman she is today. Like Ralph, Jacqueline is the real deal, making her a treasure in a world full of celebrity millionaires who have accomplished nothing but celebrity itself. Nothing You Can Possess is that other kind of accomplishment.

I have not read Jacqueline's fourth book, in which she undertakes the lofty subject of religion, but I have been impressed with her writing accomplishments so far.

One has to be dubious of single review 5 star ratings - they have that unpleasant whiff of 'shill' about them. Especially when they open with "I wanted to know about the concentration camps that are being built in America that we are seeing all over the Internet." This is to redress the balance.

I wanted to know about the concentration camps that are being built in America that we are seeing all over the Internet. I wanted to know about New World Order (NWO). I wanted to know about the powerful "elusive" elitists who meet secretly every year called the Bilderberg group. I wanted to know how the concentration camps, NWO and the Bilderberg group link with one another. Reading this book will explain all of this and much more. Americans we really do need to wake up before it's too late! Start by reading this book!
