Excellent May 6, 2008
Mr. Ellis does a good job of staying focused on the point while keeping the reader engaged. My 17 year old son LOVES this book and I have purchased extra copies (3) and gave them to several men in my community who are wroking with young black men. It's a shame that Mr. Ellis does NOT respond to his web page emails to come to poor inner city communities where black boys at the highest risk and help! I guess everyone has a price...
Highly Recommend for Men of All Ages Mar 3, 2008
This was a really powerful book. I read it with the intention of gaining some knowledge to share with the young men I mentor, and while it achieved that goal, I also gained some really great insight for myself. The book gave me a lot to reflect on, not only my past image, but what I am doing about developing my current image from the inside out.
I wish that I would have read a book like this in my teens, its the kind of book that really shapes how you view yourself and the world around you. Really provides some insight to the power and importance of developing a positive self image that is based on character and integrity.
