Each chapter's content is presented in the context of a resonant theme, designed to engage you with topics such as overcoming adversity, Internet dating and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Author Kathleen McWhorter emphasizes critical thinking throughout, which will prepare you for your college courses and beyond.
