This book is self-published. There are a few typos, and I wish that he had written more/explained more in some areas. I think perhaps because he is so close to this matter, it is hard for him to step back and see what else might be included in his narrative for those unfamiliar with what is happening to understand it better.
Still, though, I would recommend to anyone who wants to know more about this case that has been in the national news, particularly in light of George being found not guilty of all charges.
In this book, Robert Zimmerman presents two primary themes:
The first theme is helping the reader to understand his family...George's family. To understand their love for people, their acceptance of people, and their many interracial relationships. Robert helps the reader understand at a very personal and emotional level how little regard this family has for those who judge others based on skin color.
The second theme is a call to recognize blatant sanctioned racism in America. Yes, white supremacist organizations are ostracized, marginalized, and rejected...and rightly so! Yet racist organizations within the African American community are given the nod of political correctness and media backing. This book is an indictment on our society for allowing racism to flourish in any form, or by any people group...and it is a call to do something about it.
This book is a call for all Americans to remember and pursue the dream of which Martin Luther King, Jr so eloquently spoke...the dream of a world where people of all races live together in peace and harmony!
A short read, this book is well worth reading!

I purchased this eBook because I wanted to know more about the Zimmerman family. It does leave you with the feeling that you actually know them and a sense of sadness that our criminal justice system, can be so perverted by special interests, to completely ruin the lives of innocent people.
As to the facts presented in the book I found no discrepancies between them and what was presented at trial. This leads me to lend credence to things the book brings out that were not presented.
The book does present some of the things about Trayvon's life that led to him being the aggressor but there is a lot more out there if one cares to do even a casual search.
If you didn't watch the trial you need to read this book. If you did watch the trial you still need to read this book. If you live in Florida you really need to read this book before the next election.
This is a pretty fast read and short book, but has a lot of valuable information that was withheld from the case. If anyone thinks Zimmerman is guilty they need to read this book.
I hope Zimmerman sues everyone involved and receives a nice settlement. I am normally against civil suits, but this is one exception.
The only criticism I have about the book is Robert talks about how he met his wife and gives some family background that has nothign to do with this case.
This book, written by Robert Zimmerman, George's father, is well written and factual. Don't believe the low~information public who have bought into the lie that Trayvon, who was pictured as an innocent angel at age 12, was 'murdered' by George Zimmerman. Young Mr. Trayvon Martin, who stood over 6 feet tall, attacked and beat George Zimmerman and profiled him as a 'Creepy Ass Cracka', according to testimony, and attempted to kill him with mixed~martial~arts style fighting. If George Zimmerman had not been LEGALLY allowed to conceal and carry a weapon, Zimmerman would be dead and all the race~baiters would be mum.
When an African American kills a Hispanic or anyone else for that matter, the NAACP and their ilk are nowhere to be found. Messrs Zimmerman (both father and son) have been vindicated. In a case stacked against them, and in spite of the criminal behavior of a prosecutor who withheld exculpatory evidence, the jury found George Zimmerman NOT GUILTY of any count. The main stream media who attempted, from the very beginning, to portray GZ as a WHITE racist/supremacist, lied and stirred the nation into a frenzy. But, ultimately, they failed. But it was not for lack of trying.Read more ›
