The last three books I have read are non-fiction. Why? I dunno. I guess I've just been in a non-fiction mood. (Although I am definitely craving a novel right now... So next?!)
Anyways, here are my reviews:
Dinesh D'Souza is a noted Conservative author, speaker and film maker. He made a dumb mistake in donating too much to a political campaign a few years ago. Since he was closely watched by political enemies, he found himself in court due to his mistake. D'Souza was sentenced to 8 months of "confinement" - which sounds less bad than prison but in actuality is being locked up at night with murderers, rapists drug dealers, and gang members on their way out of prison. He learned a lot from this experience. And he shares it with us in this book.
D'Souza makes astonishing connections between the way gangs operate among themselves and the gangs in politics. Because of that, this book will anger a lot of people. I was angry. I was angry with the way D'Souza was treated. I was angry with the way politicians steal from average, hard-working Americans. I was angry that more people don't believe or choose to be ignorant of these things.
This book was enlightening. This book made me feel smarter. And, I believe, this book is honest and full of truth. I definitely recommend it.
