Format: Paperback
I find this book easily digestible and a satisfying read. A concise self help guide to the tribulations that some black women face on a daily basis. This book covers life scenarios such as our personal relationships with lovers, children, women, work, siblings and mostly important ourselves. A special thing about this book is the additional letters by other women explaining their situations and views and perspectives. The author gives a good analysis of the positives and negatives in each setting. In short it's a beautiful simplistic guide to a the rights of passage for the black woman. The only criticism is I wish this book was longer.

A fore-runner in the self-help genre aimed at black women 18 Oct. 1999
By Mo Fleming (bcabooks@home.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For Black Women Only was one of the earliest books to emerge focusing on specific issues of self-esteem and the African American woman. Through her practice, Dr. Igrid D. Hicks encountered a variety of women with surprisingly similar elements: serious traumas, crisis, and abuses. Dr. Hicks realized that these soul-defeating experiences contributed to a host of ailments including fatigue, depression, and physical illness. In her book, Hicks uses real lives to engage readers, and illustrate how common sense advice and self-awareness helps raise self-esteem and empowers women to achieve personal success and happiness.
While other authors such as Iyanla Vanzant, Grace Cornish and Anita Bunkley have subsequently taken up the banners of personal responsibility, self-esteem and empowerment, For Black Women Only is the grand-mother of self-help books for sisters, and remains a invaluable contribution to a community of women and a literary genre.

Cliches and Victims 28 July 2000
By Ishta Kwan Ruwanda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What a tremendous disappointment! Resorting to racial stereotypes isn't doing our people any favors. A helping book directed to ANY individuals, regardless of color, might just help lift us up, but this one rely's on the cliche of being a vistim. That's not empowerment.
