Author Kenneth R. Timmerman exposes Jesse Jackson's life and works, uncovering a sordid tale of greed, ambition, and corruption from a self-proclaimed minister who has no qualms about poisoning American race relations for personal gain.
Few figures have been given such a free ride by the media as Jesse Jackson, but Timmerman has interviewed Jackson, his associates, and his victims to write a courageous and important book that at last provides a full, honest accounting of the life and lies of Jackson - from the streets of Chicago to his support of Yasser Arafat in the Middle East.
Here is the real Jesse Jackson: the man who turned racial grievances into a breathtaking money machine.

Great book, poorly read.
extremely hard to listen to
assuming what was presented is thoroughly researched and accurate [and it seems to be] this is a book that all people of all colors should be familiar with.
the blatant ways that jesse jackson put himself ahead of anyone and anything.
in every conceivable way. he is unfamiliar with many words but mispronounces them with consistency. it appears he had never pre-read this book and therefore has pauses and mis-places emphasis throughout the performance.
if this book could be available by a different narrator it would be great. many times throughout the book i considered turning it back in and getting a replacement, but the content is so valuable that i am going to keep it. this might end up being a book i will actually purchase in hard copy.
if you can suffer through the narrator, this really will be an eye-opener of a book!
