I read this book in school for An African American class.
While I could understand how this man could read a corroboration of his own views into this book, the conclusions I drew were considerably more compassionate.
Throughout the book Lemann uses far too many eight-dollar, academician words when simpler forms would do nicely, and would fit the subject matter better.
