"For Ta-Nehisi Coates, history has always been personal. At every stage of his life, he's sought in his explorations of history answers to the mysteries that surrounded him -- most urgently, why he, and other black people he knew, seemed to live in fear. What were they afraid of? In Tremble for My Country, Coates takes readers along on his journey through America's history of race and its contemporary resonances through a series of awakenings -- moments when he discovered some new truth about our long, tangled history of race, whether through his myth-busting professors at Howard University, a trip to a Civil War battlefield with a rogue historian, a journey to Chicago's South Side to visit aging survivors of 20th century America's 'long war on black people,' or a visit with the mother of a beloved friend who was shot down by the police. In his trademark style -- a mix of lyrical personal narrative, reimagined history, essayistic argument, and reportage -- Coates provides readers a thrillingly illuminating new framework for understanding race: its history, our contemporary dilemma, and where we go from here"--… (mais)

I have listened to this book, recited by the author's own voice, and am still thinking about it.

To truly respect an author, I think, is to hear their words and respond to them, perhaps even be changed by them. No work stands without context, and to ignore that context and respond to the work alone would be naive, but I think that responding to the context and ignoring the work itself goes beyond naivete into the realm of insult.

Coates brings up an anecdote involving a reporter, early on, in which something of a similar nature happens. I am certain that this has happened many times, and will keep happening...

I have read some Baldwin, that oft-made contextual comparison that is meant to delineate and classify Coates' work, and I think those who make the comparison are missing the point. The essay responds to that comparison well enough- to paraphrase, Coates is not the Baldwin of our generation, Baldwin is the Baldwin of our generation. Duh.

Even still, this felt more personal than Baldwin, perhaps because Coates writes of now, or perhaps for some other reason.

I don't know. There is a lot about the world I don't know, and will never know, and this is why I read.

I know I need to sit and think, and keep thinking, and try to do the work required to become human, the work that does not end and has no finish.

I know I'll be thinking about this essay for a long time to come. ( )

This was a really good book.
I enjoyed the writing style, and it was very relatable.
For me, it was required reading in the English 115 class I took for the fall 2017 semester at my university.
It was honestly one of the first required readings that I enjoyed reading and was sad that it finished.
I highly recommend this book! ( )

Re-read for book club two years after my initial read. Just as important and timely now as it was two years ago. ( )

I wasn't familiar with Ta-Nehisi Coates as a writer or author, and only picked up this book when I spotted it on some Best Seller lists. As most everyone knows by now, the book expresses a father's ideas and concerns about race and his hopes for his son. I’m not of the same generation nor race as the author, so I can’t say I’ve had shared views and experiences, but that wasn’t at all relevant. The author talks of his life experiences, and sharing it isn’t necessary to understand it. But what truly impressed me about the book was the writing. Ta-Nehisi Coates is a masterful wordsmith, a linguist, a poet. I loved his descriptive phrases and the pictures he paints with his words. The message is meaningful, but the writing alone made the book worth reading. ( )

Honest, searing, challenging, brutal, and moving. Those are some of the words I thought of as I read this book. I am not going to try and review it. It is a short work that is so much deeper and denser than books 4 times it length. I wish everyone in America would read this book, and read it honesty, because I think it would add so much understanding to our psyche. But then I think that it would make almost no difference with so many people who have their entrenched views and refuse to listen and be open to new ideas. There were times I was felt very challenged personally by this book. And that is a good thing. I will think about this book for a long time and I'm fairly certain I will return and read it again (and possibly more times after that). One note I will add is that I loved the section when he gets to Howard University. His description of the difference that environment and the library located there made in his life was so beautiful. Let's make that a reality for everyone in this country. We would reap so much more than we spent. ( )

Between the World and Me is, in important ways, a book written toward white Americans, and I say this as one them. White Americans may need to read this book more urgently and carefully than anyone, and their own sons and daughters need to read it as well. This is not to say this is a book about white people, but rather that it is a terrible mistake for anyone to assume that this is just a book about nonwhite people. In the broadest terms Between the World and Me is about the cautious, tortured, but finally optimistic belief that something beyond these categories persists. Implicit in this book’s existence is a conviction that people are fundamentally reachable, perhaps not all of them but enough, that recognition and empathy are within grasp, that words and language are capable of changing people, even if—especially if—those words are not ones people prefer to hear.

In the scant space of barely 160 pages, Atlantic national correspondent Coates (The Beautiful Struggle) has composed an immense, multifaceted work. This is a poet's book, revealing the sensibility of a writer to whom words—exact words—matter....It's also a journalist's book, not only because it speaks so forcefully to issues of grave interest today, but because of its close attention to fact...As a meditation on race in America, haunted by the bodies of black men, women, and children, Coates's compelling, indeed stunning, work is rare in its power to make you want to slow down and read every word. This is a book that will be hailed as a classic of our time.

And one morning while in the woods I stumbled suddenly upon the thing,

Stumbled upon it in a grassy clearing guarded by scaly oaks and elms

And the sooty details of the scene rose, thrusting themselves between the world and me...
