I loved this book. It chronicles Geoffrey Canada's personal experience growing up in a culture that did not always encourage academic success and his professional journey to combat the lack of educational achievement in Harlem. I love that the author also wove into this story a history of the governmental policies and some of the major writings (i.e. "The Bell Curve") on tackling this same issue. Wow- that sounds boring, but it's really not! If you have ever wondered if anything can be done to help the disadvantaged then this book will inspire you. The narrator was a pleasure to listen to as well.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
I was interested in issues around poverty and education. I also wanted to know more about the Harlem's Children's Zone. I am glad I listened to this book. I have found myself referencing the ideas in the books and the story has stayed with me. Good read!
