WHAT REVIEWERS SAID ABOUT "THE EDUCATION OF A WHITE BOY"
Race relations in many parts of the United States are still a confusing mess, half a century after the Civil Rights Movement. A change in perspective is required in many people, and this is the sort of soul-bearing book that could help with that shift. Very well done, Mr. Johnson.

I love this timely book and hope that it becomes part of the reading of every citizen of this country -no, of the globe. James Francis Johnson is a very important writer and blogger. Watch him rise, but read him now!
-- Grady Harp
It is a fascinating book dealing fairly honestly and realistically with racism, from a unique perspective. If you're interested in racism, I recommend it. Wait, you shouldn't be interested in racism at all.....
-- Owen Robinson
Johnson is a talented and powerfully gifted author that can tell real stories and relate real experiences in interesting and thought-provoking ways. If you want to reacquaint yourself with issues of race that are still ongoing (and some might say intensifying) in America today, then The Education of a White Boy is a book well worth picking up.
-- John J. Staughton
He [Johnson] explains that he is of the view that everyone exhibits characteristics of racism in certain circumstances of their lives but few are honest about it...I really enjoyed The Education of a White Boy because of the open and honest look that Johnson takes at racism not only in others, but also in himself. Everyone should read this book.
