Hill Harper - The Conversation
I am an avid reader and there is rarely a time that you can ask me "what are you reading?" and I don't have an answer for you. Recently, I've been checking out the latest book by Hill Harper. He is the Brown University and Harvard Law School graduate turned actor that you may know from CSI. He is also an author. His first book, Letters to a Young Brother: MANifest Your Destiny is aimed at young people and provides inspirational material on a number of different topics. His latest literary venture is "The Conversation: How Man and Women Can Build Loving and Trusting Relationships". Now, I must admit that I was a bit skeptical about this book.
I mean, he is a single guy talking about relationships. But as I read the book I realized that although he is not married, he has a great deal of practical advice that can be applied to relationships. He also addressed the fact that he is still not in his ideal relationship by seeking input for the book from his friends that are married.
I believe the main premise of the book is communication. I am in agreement with his supposition that communication is the foundation of positive relationships. And although this book does focus primarily on African-American relationships, I think the information found within it's pages are applicable no matter what your ethnicity.
If you'd like a copy of The Conversation all you have to do is leave a comment telling me what words of advice you have for building loving relationships. The contest is over on October 8, 2010. Please be sure to leave your email address in your comment if it is not in your Blogger profile. Good Luck!
