Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ever the consummate professional, Smiley delivers his message of hope and promise with a commanding tone that demands his audience's attention. His candid and polished reading gives his political messages an arresting personal touch.”  Publishers Weekly
“Smiley himself reads in a strong, often strident voice that deserves to be heard; it's doubtful that anyone else could adequately convey his mixture of outrage toward past treatments of minority Americans and his hope for the future now that a President is in power who finally understands that the government is accountable to all citizens.” Library Journal
“Smiley looks at our country since the Obama election, focusing on such factors as media bias and political partisanship—not to mention the recent economy—and how they affect black Americans…when we hear the hard-luck stories he recounts—like the story of Diamante Driver, who died of brain cancer after being denied an $80 tooth extraction because of his lack of health insurance—it's easy to forget we're living in America.” AudioFile
“Like its predecessors, this book by the PBS and radio personality is a model of measured, pragmatic, instructive thought.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
