By josie on July 27, 2012
Format: Paperback
How often do you come by a book that you can read in one setting? Alan Inman's "The Color of love: Treasured Wisdom on the Family" shares a special story about his life. Part Auto-biography, part-folklore, there are many lessons to be learned.

Alan Inman's approach is like that of an older, wiser, relative. He reflects on his life - both the lightness and darkness, Joy and pain - almost in a way that says `learn from my lessons'; you can almost feel his pain when he reflects on the generational absence of father's from his family including his own absence from his son. You can also feel his intense joy when he speaks about the second chance he had to be a father, and how maturity, god-centered focus, and a shift in priorities allowed him to do for Alena, what he couldn't do for Todd.

The book was not only a personal reflection by Alan Inman. Alan collected quotes about family from our African ancestors, historical black leaders, religious figures, sport legends, colleagues, family, and entertainers. There was a trend between all of these people - family should be a priority in our lives.

Alan also included personal family pictures, which was fun to look at, and refreshing for a book. It helped me as a reader to feel personally connected.

All in All, I really enjoyed reading this book. It's not very often that you learn a little something about the author and also about yourself.

I give Color of Love four stars!!

Mr. Inman shares an outstanding blend of micro (personal) and macro (life in general) perspectives on what we can learn from our personal experiences and life regarding the power of love. I really enjoyed the integration of quotes and perspectives from others as intervention tools to further emphasize a key nugget. The personal sharing brought the human touch which I find to bring meaning to the subject matter at hand. One of my friends used the book as a point of healing after the loss of her mother.
