Uncle Sam's Plantation

I received this book free to review from BookSneeze, the thoughts expressed in this review are solely my own.

I love politics! I enjoy reading books about government. I have many conservative "heroes" who I have read books by, listened to radio programs of, and seen live, but I must admit that I had never even heard of Star Parker before choosing to read this book. Star Parker, I have come to find, is a strong woman who used to be on welfare herself, but is now seeing how harmful it can be.

This book shares how welfare (among other things) hurts those it is intended to help. This book mainly focuses on the black community, but it is applicable to anyone.

I found this book fairly interesting and pretty easy to get through, based on the subject matter that it was covering.

I do not agree completely with Star Parker on everything that she has wrote about in this book, but it did help to open my eyes on many issues that I didn't know a lot about before.

I like the cover design of this book – that is really what got me to read this book in the first place.

I thought that the chapters were kind of long, I am a big fan of short chapters and feel that they can make a book a lot easier to read.

I give this book a five out of five star rating, and I recommend it to any adult.
