The first half of this book presents a sobre but clear understanding of the current landscape and market dynamics in the coming two decades. The second half then proposes a bold vision for the future. It has left me feeling realistic but optimistic.

A tragic and beautiful commentary on, and analysis of, the black experience in America. Incredibly moving.

Singularly compassionate

Andrew Solomon's book is one of the most incredible books I've ever read. The compassion and emotive detail with which he writes allows any reader to identify with and a relate to the extreme and foreign experiences of some of these parent-child relationships.

I listened to an interview he gave in a New Yorker podcast some years ago, which compelled me to buy his book. I am so glad that he chose to narrate this himself- although it takes a little getting used to.

This book improves with each chapter and starts off strong.
