Reviews - What do customers think about Melanin: A Key To Freedom?

This is a interesting book  Apr 27, 2008
I wish it was a little more detail. Other than that it is a good read.
A Place to start...  Apr 12, 2008
The importance of understanding the role Melanin plays in relation to physical and mental health is key to opening the door to improved health and therefore a better quality of life. Having said this, Melanin: A Key To Freedom is effective in presenting certain aspects of Melanin and the role it plays from an Afro-centric perspective. The problem with this treatment lies primarily in the fact that the manner in which Dr. King presents his information can at times be very tedious and confusion. The author tends to repeat certain statements at the start of each chapter which takes away from the flow of the book. This robs the book of its identity as the reader is torn between piecing together the historical statements while trying to process the information about Melanin. Without question the information contained within is very interesting and relevant but the flaw with the book is in the manner in which Dr. King chooses to present his information. The book never establishes an identity, it remains in part a history lesson with a healthy dose of medical information dispersed throughout. A more direct and concise treatment of the subject can be found in The Science of Melanin; Dispelling the Myths.
The Wonderful Gift of Melanin  Dec 19, 2007
I believe this is the first and only book that gives a detailed scientific study of the magic melanin that gives people of color their beautiful red,black, brown and/or yellow hues. This book is wonderful. Many authors touched on how special the chemical that produces our color is but this book breaks it all down. Every child should own this book because western schools try and stay away from talks about melanin because caucasians dont produce it and are thereby scientifically "albinos". A crocidile with no color is a sick albino crocidile, a white ant with no color is a diseased albino ant, a white tiger with no color is a genetically weak albino tiger and the same thing goes with humans but rarely do you see it explained in such a way. It is truly a gift to have the beautiful colors most of the world has. Even in plants the chemical that produces their color is called chlorophyll and it basically is a plant form of melanin. Chlorophyll and melanin both work the same in that they transmute the sun's UV rays into vital nutrients and minerals that are helpful to the human body. People whom are white-skinned or who have no skin color can not be exposed to UV rays for too long without getting skin poisoning, cancer or death, while the rest of the worlds people with different colors can thrive and actually get healthier the more sun they get.
Beautiful book written by a brave author who isn't afraid to tell the truth even when the whole world is pretending they can't figure out how melanin works.
