My only complaint is that the last four chapters are devoted to an excellent primer on economics. This should really be at the start of the book but perhaps the author deliberately placed it at the end so that those who read the whole book would get a reward for doing so. I have read the entire book several times and referred back to individual chapters on many occasions.
I enjoyed this book so much that I have bought additional copies for my children and friends in both the printed and Kindle versions.
Mr. Williams explores the controversial issues of race in America with an eye-opening candor that refreshes and makes the reader think outside his comfort zone. This is a great book and a must read.
Walter E. Williams has a way of clarifying matters that seem complex to most of us, and usnig plain old common sense while doing so, making the reader wonder why he didn't see the same thing in the first place himself.
I have always enjoyed Professor Williams' work, and look forward to each of his books. It's hard to argue against such logic!
