In Come On, People, Bill Cosby and Alvin F. Poussaint tell an inspiring story about human beings fighting hardships and succeeding. It is a story about strong, resilient people who have overcome poverty and mistreatment. Do not be surprised if you find yourself identifying personally with the stories because you see the same struggle in either yourself or in an acquaintance or a relative. It is a stirring call for us all to complete the daunting transition from victims to victors, from helplessness to hope. Come On, People will encourage you to set aside excuses and make a better life todayùfor you, for your children, for your community, and for your future.

Author Bios:

Bill Cosby is one of the most influential performers of the last half century. From a poor Philadelphia neighborhood, he rose to dominate the airwaves through shows like I Spy and The Cosby Show, become the all-time bestselling comedian on records; and author several blockbuster books, including Fatherhood, which became the fastest-selling hardcover book of all time and spent 54 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. A crusader throughout his career, his success is complemented by involvement with a host of charitable, education, and civil rights organizations.

Alvin F. Poussaint, M.D., grew up in a family of eight children in East Harlem, New York. He is a veteran of the civil rights movement, serving as Southern Field Director of the Medical Committee for Human Rights in Jackson, Mississippi, in the 1960s. He is currently a Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Judge Baker Children's Center. Dr. Poussaint is coauthor of Raising Black Children and Lay My Burden Down.

    Though this book is written primarily to the African American community, its message can be applied to people of all colors. The authors preach a message of personal responsibility. They feel that it is time that people stop blaming everyone else for their adversity and realize that we are responsible for our own destinies. The authors' make many valid points about the everyday black experience in America and how the idolization of "thugs" and "pimps" must stop if the black community is to succeed.This is a wonderful book that is open and honest...and frank. The authors don't pull any punches in the excellent advice they give to families of all colors who are seeking to overcome problems they've been dealt in life.
