THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Common--the Grammy Award, Academy Award, and Golden Globe-winning musician, actor, and activist--follows up his New York Times bestselling memoir One Day It'll All Make Sense with this inspiring exploration of how love and mindfulness can build communities and allow you to take better control of your life through actions and words. Common believes that the phrase "let love have the last word" is not just a declaration; it is a statement of purpose, a daily promise. Love is the most powerful force on the planet and ultimately, the way you love determines who you are and how you experience life. Touching on God, self-love, partners, children, family, and community, Common explores the core tenets of love to help others understand what it means to receive and, most important, to give love. He moves from the personal--writing about his daughter, to whom he wants to be a better father--to the universal, where he observes that our society has become fractured under issues of race and politics. He knows there's no quick remedy for all of the hurt in the world, but love--for yourself and for others--is where the healing begins. Courageous, insightful, brave, and characteristically authentic, Let Love Have the Last Word shares Common's own unique and personal stories of the people and experiences that have led to a greater understanding of love and all it has to offer. It is a powerful call to action for a new generation of open hearts and minds, one that is sure to resonate for years to come.… (mais)

For most of the book, I felt this book was on the line between okay and worth reading. The last chapter, despite being only 3 pages, just pulled so much together that I decided on a 4 star rating.

The way that the book is written, it feels as if Common is relating things to the reader just as or just after they have happened. In some ways, it gives a feeling of intimacy, but also feels like a rather unique choice for a memoir.

There are moments that feel repetitious as he write about his thoughts and explorations around love. And, he doesn't shy away from mentioning his faith - though he doesn't go much farther in this book then attributing God for his source of inspiration for living and "let[ting] love have the last word."

While he does include moments from his life and about various relationships - mostly with family - it feels less like a memoir overall, and more like a long reflective essay of sorts. ( )

In Let Love Have the Last Word, Common shares what life has taught him about love in every sense of the word. He writes from a place of openness and humility, and in this, he succeeds in relating to the audience. While I understand that this is a memoir of sorts, at times, it felt almost too introspective, as if each chapter was a new journal entry. This format definitely has its place, and while others may connect more with the way that this book was written, it was a little too circular and repetitive for me. I've read a number of reviews that mention that the audio version is excellent. I can definitely see how this would be better as an audiobook. I really wanted to like this more than I did, and while it fell a little flat for me, the overall message is one that we can all benefit from. ( )

We can no longer afford to worship the god of hate or bow before the altar of retaliation. As Arnold Toynbee says: 'Love is the ultimate force that makes for the saving choice of life and good against the damning choice of death and evil. Therefore, the first hope in our inventory must be the hope that love is going to have the last word.'

- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
