[May 27, 2018] I know that it has far too long between book reviews but I couldn’t help it with all the recent activity on my leadership blog that kept me busier than expected. Plus, the real reason is that my wife and I just saw the arrival of our new granddaughter and that took us away from our home. The nice weather has also affected my writing and I do appreciate the very positive feedback given to me during this special time. A special note, I want to give, to the developing fan club of mine (and to several of my guest writers) that your comments are greatly appreciated and helpful. My intent in www.theleadermaker.com is to get us to “think” and to use “reasoning” to solve the problems of leaders around the globe. Today, I’m again introducing Thomas Sowell but this time with his newest book that will set the American progressive ideology on fire.
Discrimination and Disparities, Thomas Sowell, 2018.
An American economist and acclaimed social theorist, Thomas Sowell, has again made his mark on a sensitive topic and, true to his style, shows us that he can tackle politically charged topics with the ease of a child who jumps rope with her friends. Threading the complexities of the topic of discrimination and the desperate outcomes thought to evolve from it, is his straightforward bailiwick of fine skills. Sowell gives us loads of intelligence (evaluated and analyzed data) and does so without resorting to undue emotion or hyperbole. I will say this about his book; it should be read by anyone about to enter the university system or expects to learn about economics.
Thomas Sowell provides us with a logical view of the decisions being made all around us. Fortunately, he provides examples that point to the effects of political decision-making; the good, the bad, and the ugly. This book is another of his works that provide an exceptional looks at the American experience and, as a black man, achieved high success before the Civil Rights Movement began. As a primer on discrimination, Sowell writes in a common tongue while delivering timeless wisdom and much needed commons sense. Don’t let your prejudices prevent you from reading this wonderful book. Highly recommended.
