The chapters include, THINGS TAKEN FOR GRANTED, AND THE EXPLOSION OF SEVERAL MYTHS, (God is Good, Jesus was a perfect man (or was He?), the level playing field (myth or reality). Hard work always pays off—really?; THE LITTLE BOOK OF WHYS (including such scintillating questions as “Why is there is racism?”; “Why doesn’t capital punishment work?”, “Why are our kids so violent?”, “Why is there a Southern Drawl?”; ROADS, exploring the roads to success and failure—which roads are guaranteed?
