Ishmael

Book:  Ishmael

Author: Daniel Quinn

Reviewer: Beth A Raines, Staff Senate, Statistics, NC State

The first in a series with The Story of B, and My Ishmael. I recommend all of them. My 20-something sons had been recommending Ishmael for some time, but I was not impressed with the synopsis they provided. I was finally convinced though, and reluctantly picked up Ishmael. It was life-changing, and I read it twice. It has provoked multiple in-depth conversations with my sons. The ultimate message of the books is for the reader to educate others.I am doing that here, by recommending these books.
