A powerful, accessible look at love and humanity. I found her observation that love is an action, not a static state, to be particularly poignant. It reminded me of that quote from the Ms. Marvel comics - "good is not a thing you are, it is a thing you do", or something along those lines. Realizing that love is something that needs to be worked on and practiced rather than simply stated or believed in has changed my life.

But all that said, there was a slightly preachy tone at moments that put me off. Her statements about how love was needed to change the world's problems and that anger is ineffective eerily echoed things other people have said to me when I grumbled about the misogyny and xenophobia and everything else I contend with.

This book offers essential reading about how we think about love, culture, and one another. Hooks highlights radical but straightforward considerations of the way interconnectedness manifests in both our intimate and public lives: What it means to give and receive love, rethinking the kind of self-love that will bring more compassion into our relationships, and the power of love to end communal and societal struggle. “She reminds us that life should be rooted in love,” Mullen explains. “It's impossible to be racist if you're living accordingly.”

This was discussed today in the African American Authors Book Club in Palmdale Library. I basically read the book for that, although it was already on my list. I found lot of interesting ideas in it, but the book club ended up discussing mostly about whether or not it's ok to spank children. Maybe, because most of the participants were a bit older. Part of the discussion was super interesting, but part of it was dominated by couple of people. I guess the issue was that there was really no one who was in charge of the discussion and keeping it on track.

I've never really been part of a "proper" book club and I will definitely go again. I got much more out of the book when I could discuss it with other people. Not everyone had read it though. It was interesting though, definitely not the normal bubble I discuss books with.

For the book itself I had a hard time getting into it, but once I did, it did offer some interesting ideas. I feel it could've been more on point, though. But, obviously there is a need for this book, since there were so many people there who were ok with spanking children as punishment. Some of them brought interesting viewpoints into that though. Like one woman, whose parents were born in the beginning of the 20th century and who had done some research into her family, she actually realized that her parents were basically one generation away from slaves. Which definitely would affect the way they were brought up.

I found the theme of fear, especially what comes to strangers really interesting. I've noticed that here a lot of people are really afraid of people who are different from them. I guess they never really interact with each other. This is one of the reasons why I wanted to go to that book club. And I already bonded with the woman who was also against spanking as a punishment :) ( )

the first 4 chapters are great! i loved how much she emphasizes how our earliest family experiences shape how we love for the rest of our lives, and that love cannot coexist with any form of abuse.

after that, she starts to talk about spirituality, and becomes super repetitive about how important love is to solve extremely complex issues in our world - if everyone just loved, our world would know peace! well, duh .. i’m the type of person who rolls her eyes when anyone suggests a “love” approach to solve the world’s problems, and because of that I couldn’t finish this book and put it down after the 6th chapter. based on other reviews, it doesn’t seem to get better after that. first 4 chapters were amazing though and super insightful.

i love and value bell’s other work, which is why her preachy tone, judgment calls, and straight-up Wrong Opinions (referring to monica lewinsky as “worse” than bill clinton because she supposedly painted herself as a victim, for instance) were really surprising in this book. there were also aspects that reeked of privilege and grandiosity (she recommends having two homes to get work done; she goes on a random tirade about a colleague’s critique of her work) that took me out of the experience over and over. i gave this two stars for a few passages that contained her trademark depth of insight, and for writing on such a complex topic in general.
