From the Back Cover:

"Edgar Ridley's refreshingly candid hypothesis is that Africans the world over are prone to make decisions - from business decisions and affairs of state to the minutiae of everyday life - based on mythological assumptions, symbols and symbolic behavior, which cripple and sometimes destroy African managerial effectiveness and impede the progress and socioeconomic virility of African people all over the world."
"An African Answer is likely to send shock waves through certain elements of the African-American intellectual class that now preoccupy themselves with history as a panacea to their plight.  In this, they are fired most fervently by the elusive possibility of providing Black worth and acceptability in the white public mind..." - Nathan and Julia Hare
