Publisher Description

Lord knows, Reverend Al has had his personal and very public ups and downs, but he's come out bigger and better than everthough the host of MSNBC's PoliticsNation is as fiery and outspoken as ever about the events and issues that matter most, he's learned that the only way we can get right as a nation is by getting right from within.

In his instant New York Times bestselling book, Rev. Al will take you behind the scenes of some unexpected places—from officiating Michael Jackson's funeral, hanging out with Jay-Z and President Barack Obama at the White House, to taking charge of the Trayvon Martin case. And he will discuss how he came to his unexpected conclusions in such areas as immigration, gay rights, religion, and family. But the heart of the book is an intimate discussion of his own personal evolution from street activist, pulpit provocateur, and civil rights leader to the man he is today—one hundred pounds slimmer, and according to The New York Observer “the most thoughtful voice on cable.” The Rev. Al you met ten years ago isn’t the same man you’ll meet today. And he has a simple promise: We can transform this nation and we can all lead better lives if we're willing to transform our hearts and transform our minds.

I apologize to Rev Sharpton

I want to apologize to Rev Sharpton. I allowed a narrative about who I thought he was to reside in my head without question, critical thought, or even mild curiosity over whether who I thought Rev Sharpton was, really was. This book is an honest - no authentic discourse on leadership, commitment, faith, passion, and purpose. It reveals a man who is very honest about himself and his views and he writes it in a way that moves you to consider, or reconsider what matters to you and why you are here on this Earth. I wish I could personally thank him, but I think he might tell me “Don’t thank me, DO something to make a difference in the world. DO something to leave a legacy of enduring positive change.” Read this book. You will never be the same.
