Lord knows, Reverend Al has had his personal and very public ups and downs, but hes com out bigger and better than ever. Though the host of MSNBCs PoliticsNation is as fiery and outspoken as ever about the events and issues that matter most, hes learned that the only way we can get it right as a nation is by getting it right from within. In this his first book in over a decade, Reverend Al will take you behind the scenes of some unexpected places, from officiating Michael Jacksons funeral, hanging out with Jay-Z and President Barack Obama at the White House, to taking charge of the Trayvon Martin case. He will discuss how he came to his unexpected conclusions in such areas as immigration, gay rights, religion and the family. But at the heart of this book is an intimate discussion of his own personal evolution from street activist, pulpit provocateur and civil rights leader to the man his is today, one hundred pounds slimmer and according to the New York Observer, the most thoughtful voice on cable.
