"If the author's thesis is correct, this will likely be the most important "book" you could ever read on the subject.
NOTE: I put "book" in quotes because to assume that its "just another book", would be a monumental mistake."As noted above, I now understand better why "book" was the wrong term to use.
It is because of the limited scope in which we typically envision a book that I was hesitant to use the term.
Yes, by all standards and conventions, it is a paperback book. There are words on papers that are bound together along the left-hand margin. There is a spine and a front cover and a back cover. Each page/paper is numbered, and the pages are sequential - it is a "book."
But it is more than a book, and even the title of the book ("workbook") indicates as much.
It is a tool/toolkit and should be viewed and used as such.
It's not a novel, nor a suspense, nor a crime-thriller.
It's not science fiction nor is it"street-lit".
It is a tool in the same vein as a fork, a pencil, a hammer, a drill, a screwdriver, a lettuce shredder, a hydraulic jack.
Each tool has a specific purpose and you use it when you need it.
The intention of the workbook is identical to that of every other tool.
One reads a suspense novel for enjoyment, escapism, or some other personal satisfaction.
A victim of racism reads AND uses the suggestions in the workbook because they are in need of tools/equipment to accomplish a specific task.
That is why it is more than a book, it is a tool. It is a workbook for thought, speech, and action.
