This book is amazing and is probably the first of its kind. It combines history, genealogy and psychology with African travel in order to improve the Black self concept. It is also a great travel book for Africa and for international travel in general because it shows you how to travel for free or very cheap and demystifies African travel and makes it easy and cheap. All Black people should get this book and use it to travel to thier roots. I have been to Africa and I wish this book was available then. However, now that I have this book I am encouraged to go again.
