About the Author: “Over the years he has been responsible for numerous teaching innovations and has supervised the training of hundreds of graduate assistants.”
Review: “This book is just awful. Be prepared to be told basic human decency standards over and over; every chapter. Every single chapter talks about not being racist when speaking to people. Here is the thing, folks, if you are college age and you have to have a book teach you this; then there is probably some real big issues in your life. I would start looking at your family, and weeding out the bad ones.”
