Latest Review: Toward Happier Choices by Michael Oborn

Post by MatereF » 08 Jul 2019, 01:24

I read the sample and i can say i am impressed. Its so easy for one not to see beyond his/her background and environment especially if its a challenging one. I am glad that Dr Frank Douglas did make it and achieve the much that he did. He is a true inspiration.

I agree with you, talking about it without actually doing something to stop it is of no use. After all, we are the main actors in the play of racism.

Its an amazing book. I agree with your sentiments that skin colour is not important and we should not judge anyone based on it. Reading the sample made me want to be better and do something positive for my community.

Amazing book about growing black man among people who don’t respect and value the others for their achievements. Surroundings see only the colour of his skin and they make conclusions only on an appearance. The main character is black. And he does his best to prove everyone, that the colour of skin is not important. It’s a very inspiring book. After reading it, you will want to do something, improve your live. You will look at your live by a new glance. I advise you to read this incredible book!

From a sampling, it seems like an interesting memoir about a doctor who grew up in South America and forced move to America during a tumultuous period. However, his time in America was not wasted as he worked hard and received a medical degree and Ph.D. at Cornell University all while dealing with racism and strife. From there he worked at some of the biggest pharmaceutical companies before becoming one of the leading professionals in the pharmaceutical industry. Overall, this memoir definitely deserves a read. Well done.

Latest Review: Four Funny Potatoes! by Len Foley

Post by busisiwe5754 » 11 Jul 2019, 15:40

I like the fact that at the age of sixteen, the author took a path less traveled. The words "Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it: why hast thou made me thus" are reminders that God is greater than men, we don't have to question him on anything. All we have to do is to be loyal and obedient. I am really enjoying the book. Thank you for a great read. :tiphat:

I like the fact that the author was only sixteen years old when he took the path less travelled. The words: "Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it: Why has thou made me thus", this is a reminder that God is greater than all of us humans, He is greater than all our intelligence and knowledge. All we have to do is to be loyal and obedient. Thank you for the review. I am currently reading the book. :tiphat:
