Whether you need sound advice, a good laugh, or just a goodly dose of common sense in these troubling times, LIFELINES: THE BLACK BOOK OF PROVERBS, is the perfect book for you.

Written by hard-working author Askhari Johnson-Hodari (THE AFRICAN BOOK OF NAMES) and Yvonne McCalla Sobers, LIFELINES is a versatile book that sports wisdom, witticism, and total appreciation of life. It is, in the words of author Pearl Cleage, a book "to be read, to be absorbed, and to be treasured!"

Endorsed by the Archbishop Desmond Tutu, this wonderful little book first preserves the wisdom of Mother Africa, then graciously disperses it among people of all races, nations and walks of life. The book is packaged with a historical look and feel, even down to the illustrations. Artist Katie Yamasaki puts her all into her work, and her illustrations transform the book into a timeless keepsake.

In case you're wondering, good things still do come in small packages. So, for a rare and comprehensive collection of black proverbs you won't find anywhere else, be sure to pick up your copy of LIFELINES today.
