  1. I would highly recommend this book I was impressed with the ability of Ms Rice to effect change I think that this book shows how we, as a society, are not successful in addressing the problems we face This book helped me to face some of my own personal fears and biases I hope I can prove to have the same courage displayed in the biography There is an especially interesting section talking about a Military Professionals insight into the work Ms Rice did with the Gangs in L.A I found it to be both [...]


  2. This is a must read for anyone seeking to gain a deeper understanding of one of America s greatest social ills gain violence Ms Rice s determination, commitment, courage, curiosity, and strength lead her to accomplish what few have been able to do Read the book to find out what she accomplished You will not be disappointed.


  3. Spectacular, must read book Connie Rice NOT Condi writes her autobiography She has been a civil rights lawyer in LA for 20 years She sues, but she becomes a community activist and eventually gets inside LAPD to try to transform predators into protectors Readable, riveting, moving.



  4. This is a difficult book for me to review I loved it so much that I want everyone to read it At least everyone who has ever lived in Los Angeles who has thought about gangs, been afraid of gangs, avoided moving somewhere because there were gangs or just want to understand gangs Connie Rice not Condoleezza Rice, they are second cousins is courageous, intelligent and inspired Civil Rights Attorney She grew up as a military brat, moving many times and places when she was young.When her family move [...]


  5. Power Concedes Nothing One Woman s Quest for Social Justice in America, from the Courtroom to the Kill Zones Hardcover by Connie Rice


  6. I received the book through First Reads Very interesting and inspiring read The author writes incredibly well, starting from her very beginnings, her journey to law school, working on death penalty and civil rights cases, to how she became an advocate to reduce gang violence in Los Angeles The book starts a bit slow, but once you get to her law school years and when she starts to talk about some of the cases she worked on and the people she collaborated with, it definitely picks up Not having mu [...]


  7. Above all else, I ve learned to reject false choices There is no choice among fixing individuals, institutions, or ecosystems we have to fix them all There is no choice between the work of charities or harnessing the public sector the whole spectrum is required, because a thousand points of light can reduce the dark but cannot replace the sun There is no choice between instilling righteous values and individual responsibility, on the one hand, and the systemic solutions we seek, on the other the [...]


  8. Once I got passed the first third of the book which gave us her background and upbringing and got into the meat of her work at LDF and the advancement project, I was hooked This book was especially interesting to me because I was able to witness some of her work from the other side It s a story that needed to be put on paper The story of LA s kill zones , battling LAPD to actually complete their mission of to protect and serve , and change from a mentality of search and destroy She goes through [...]


  9. Note no spoilersbut my reviews are usually light hearted than this I find it hard to talk about PCO without resorting to grandeur.I would characterize this book as brutal but necessary kinda like watching The Wire, but with fewer funny bits I will never hear another story of gang violence, or see the kids standing on the street corner, in the same way By straddling races 40% African American, 40% white, 20% Native American , the author is able to take us from Harvard classrooms to back lots in [...]


  10. Great personal journey into transforming the relations of old paradigm mindset of the LAPD and the citizens Loved how Connie built the foundation of the book by starting with initial insight to discovery her true purpose and how that has evolved over the past 20 years She stayed true to herself, kept the focus on the mission of picking up where Martin Luther King Jr left off The work continues, its about the journey and not so much the destination Her experiences has led to the Advancement Proje [...]


  11. Yes, Connie Rice is second cousin to Condoleezza, but thank God she is nothing like her except for a driven personality and a lot of brains When I first started the book, I wasn t sure I d like it because she seemed rather full of herself However, I quickly fell in love with her and the book Her life the way she walks her talk should be a model for us all She cares about the poorest of the poor and DOES something about it It is inspiring and also a very interesting read.


  12. I won this as a advance copy.This book started out slow, but when I finally was able to get into it, I was impressed Connie Rice was raised in the military and moved quite a bit From there,she went to Harvard where she became involved in the working on the discrimination of the the death penalty She winds up in Los Angeles continuing her work as a civil rights attorney, affecting change and reform.


  13. Ms Rice is advising the Mayor on police reform, so I thought I d better learn a bit about her history and work This is a worthwhile read if you re interested in police reforms in Los Angeles and death penalty cases in America, but so for the story of Ms Rice s motivations, energy and commitment to justice.


  14. I just finished reading this book a few days ago Connie Rice Condeleeza Rice s second cousin Harvard Radcliff undergrad , New York University law school , federal court clerkship with Judge Damon Keith, NAACP Legal Defense Fund civil rights lawyer, social justice activiste is my SheRo


  15. I won this in the First Read Giveaway This is a book that I would really like to read because social justice really interests me However, I haven t received it yet and am starting to doubt that I will.


  16. I just won this on First Reads This was a really interesting book I lived in LA for about 3 years and while I knew about the gang problems I was pretty oblivious to just how bad it really was This book was fascinating The author is extremely brave and her work is inspiring.


  17. Fascinating auto biography by a bright, compassionate woman who bravely lives a life of callenges while honoring her principles A must for Angelenos who need to know about all of their city And she likes cats Thank you, Connie.


  18. I saw and heard Connie Rice speak on a panel at the LA Times Festival of Books, today 4 22 12 and she is eloquent and brilliant If she writes half as good as she speaks, this book will be a most compelling read.


  19. It was interesting to learn about the behind the scenes dynamics of the justice system through the eyes of a legal advocate and former civil rights lawyer.
