What Black Men Should Do Now: 100 Simple Truths, Ideas, and Concepts (Dafina) Paperback – May 1, 2002
From the Publisher
It used to be family and friends who gave you guidance on how to live in the world. But these days, that help is harder to come by. WHAT BLACK MEN SHOULD DO NOW fills the vacuum by offering practical, plain-talking advice for living a fulfilling, successful life.
From the Author
For years, I myself searched for a book that dealt in-depth with some of the unique personal challenges that black men face in everyday life and how to tackle them. But I was unsuccessful in finding one. And while there are some excellent self-help books by dynamic authors on the shelves today that speak to African-Americans as a whole, there are very few specifically for black men that boldly go where Ive gone with this book. I thought to myself, "Im sure there are other brothers like me out there who are looking for a book like this." So, I decided to write it.
After--and while--reading the book, I hope men will: 1) have a keener sense of what really being a man is all about; 2) finally get it, that feeling vulnerable should never be equated with weakness, cowardliness or failure; and 3) strive daily to be their best selves by striking balance in every area of their lives.
WHAT BLACK MEN SHOULD DO NOW is targeted to African-American men. But the concepts address all men. Im actually surprised by the countless number of Caucasian women who have approached me about getting a copy of the book for their Caucasian husbands or mates. In fact, during one of my books-signings, a Caucasian woman stopped by to chat with me, which is often. And after standing there flipping through the book for quite a while, she looked at me with a warm smile and said, "You titled your book wrong." I asked her, "How so?" And she said, "Because Im a white woman with a white husband who could really benefit from what youre saying." So, it really is a universal self-help guide, something for all men--black, white, Technicolor. But as an African-American man, I realize there are certain issues that challenge us on a daily basis that need addressing. And often brothers just need to hear the message from another brother.

The principles in this book are amazing. The author tells it like it is, and he doesn't hold back. Man, he is a bold brother. (It is not for the faint at heart!) It is well written, and is a got-to-read for black men and women. Even a lot of our young African-American boys growing up today will get a lot out of it (if they read it). It will prepare them for true manhood as they grow into adult men. It just needs to get into their hands.
This book will change its reader's life. I suggest if you want to change your life, buy it here and read it, because it will make you look honestly at yourself and your life, and will inspire you to change it for the better.
Highly recommend it!
