Only problem: book seriously needs an index (all of Kersey's book do). But this book needs an index b/c a lot of the individuals, like former Mayor Kurt Schmoke and Martin O'Malley are such interesting characters and you want to read about their exploits instead of thumbing through the book trying to locate their names.
Kersey makes some controversial statements like blacks should be encouraged to get abortions to lower the potential number of future criminals coming into the world. He also contends that blacks as a whole have lower IQs. The book has many useful notes and makes its case in certain areas very convincingly. As for the for the format of the book, it has problems with restating facts too many times which leads people to believe that the book could have been shorter. There are no page numbers as well. The book is sure to spark outrage among black people, but maybe they need to look into the mirror to see the problem. A good book with format flaws. Three stars
