Not sure that I like a book that is presented as a self-help book, but is actually an infomercial... *headdesk* :(There were some very good ideas and points in this book, but trust me, if you are a country guy or gal, most of these ideas just wont work due to lack of accessibility... grrrI have been eating healthy using available products and am slowly losing weight that doesnt appear to just jump back on overnight... so, Im good with whole foods and correct portion sizes, makes my life much easier than what I heard in this book.
A former slave, self-taught writer, editor, and public servant, Frederick Douglass was also among the foremost leaders of the abolitionist movement. Recognized as one of the first great African-American speakers in the United States, Douglass was an advisor to President Lincoln during the Civil War and fought for the adoption of constitutional amendments that guaranteed voting rights and other civil liberties for blacks.This book includes representative selections from the speeches and writings of this great statesman, with topics focusing on the slave trade, the Civil War, suffrage for African-Americans, reconstruction in the South, and other vital issues.A powerful voice for human rights throughout much of the 19th century, Douglass remains highly respected today for his fight against racial injustice..
Im short on time today, so, I wont give my usual detailed review. What I will say is that, what the writers and illustrators of the previous volume did well before, they excel at here...but the hard-edged nature is still present, as youll see below.Content Concerns: Three or four sexual remarks, including one about syphilis; d-words and h-words get used about five times each, and other expletives (b-----d), euphemisms (flippin, dang) and implied profanity are seen as well; freaky visuals, including scary monsters and scenes of rather bloody violence, are seen throughout; emotional intensity in nearly every issue..
