Not what you might expect.

This is a must read for the socially conscious and politically aware.
I was riveted! What a brilliant man and what an amazing life!

In times like these, this book is essential!

I found this book to be easy to listen to and packed full of useful ideas. The historical perspective provided me with a deeper understanding of some of the same issues we are still dealing with today, i.e. for profit prisons and immigration. I highly recommend this book to anyone who believes in order to make long term change we all need to, "pull your shift."

Pretty Good Book

Nothing mind blowing, a few good techniques I will use, a couple really funny moments. Author and Performer are both good story tellers.

Not a guide, this is a memoir

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If the book was about what it titles says it will be about.

What could Si Kahn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Write a about what the title said it would be about. Or, change the title.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.

Any additional comments?

Book needs a warning, "not about what you think it's about"
