|The Conversation: How Men and Women Can Build Loving, Trusting Relationships
The Conversation by Hill Harper is deeply reflective and honest.
The author's ability to discuss his own faults regarding relationships
with raw and unflinching candor is impressive. His sincerity should
move readers to hold up the mirror, evaluate the health of their own
relationships, or assess why they may be unsuccessful in establishing
new relationships. Readers seeking inspiration might also enjoy the
quotes from other notable celebrities at the beginning of each
chapter in this book.
Since the author is unmarried and admits that he has failed in his
attempts to commit, many may question his level of expertise on the
subject of building loving and trusting Black relationships. To allay
these concerns, the author relies on the experiences and opinions of
others who enjoy healthy relationships and marriages. He also includes in his writing statistical findings and research from a few reputable sources to support his hypotheses on the state of Black
male and female relationships. Readers should however, bear in
mind that while the writing is eloquent and captivating, the author is
not a professional counselor and The Conversation does not
present scientific strategies for managing Black male/female
relationships. Readers seeking more impact solutions for repairing
strained relationships should seek advice from professional
