    Buck PDF/EPUB Ì Hardcover buck mobile, Buck EpubGaining a toehold in starting this book can be tough but I urge you to stick with it You will be rewarded with a story that will stay with you It is uplifting without a shred of sappiness The title of the book is apt I loved all the applications of the word buck that were used If you are a lover of adroit turns of phrases you will dig on the ones contained in here and they are many My favorite was a man who was 'so fat he runs out of breath trying to catch his breath' Memoirs as a whole are not my first choice but this one spoke to me I may not have always been familiar with the street lingo that was used but the context steers you where you need to go A very worthwhile re

    Buck PDF/EPUB Ì Hardcover buck mobile, Buck EpubI was awarded this book in a Goodreads giveaway but plan on buying for the young men in my extended family Now I see why reading was illegal for black people during slavery I discover that I think in words The words I know the things I can think aboutReading was illegal because if you limit someone's vocab you limit their thoughts They can't even think of freedom because they don't have the language to p 229 I certainly wish many young men would have this epiphany about reading And that's why this book is important it can be inspirational for youth everywhere who feel locked out and left behind I think MK has done a superb job in representing his generation His journey thus far told with a hip hop sensibility is certainly one that wi

    Buck PDF/EPUB Ì Hardcover buck mobile, Buck EpubI was so excited for MK Asante's BUCK When I read the synopsis earlier this year I just knew I had to read this man's story of triumph BUCK is a very moving literary work I see why CNN and Maya Angelou gave Asante such praise He is truly a brilliant writerso descriptive and in touch with his audience he easily transitions from slang vulgarity and the rawness of a life of oppression to a language readily identified as poetic Asante shows that the two are very much connected and forces you to like it I thoroughly enjoyed the memoir it lived up to my expectations it deserves its hype If you're afraid of vulgarity afraid to escape your box of safety afraid to read what it is to be Black and male in America then don't get this memoir BUCK is not easy to read or forget it's frightening it's shocking it's appalling But it's also a story of hope expectation and need for better It's weird how something can be so unappealing and inspiring simultaneouslybut BUCK is just that I recommend it
