Customer Reviews

Fantastic, provocative and passionate  July 26, 2011

Drawing from inspirational experiences from her own childhood, Dr. Edelman talks to her own children, urging them, in whatever occupation they may choose, to serve the community at large. This woman is so smart and well spoken and has a way of writing and speaking that really touches me and inspires me to do better for children- all children. The book was in as good of shape as promised. I would buy from them again.

The Measure of Our Success: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


This #1 New York Times bestseller is Edelman's personal letter to her three sons--a inspirational work of love filled with wisdom and advice, such as don't feel entitled to anything you don't sweat for and don't be afraid to fail--it's the way you learn to do things right. The first African American woman admitted to the Mississippi bar, Edelman is founder and president of the Children's Defense Fund.
