5.0 out of 5 stars Eloquent Storytelling! Very enjoyable,though brutal,reading., 25 Oct 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Raw Deal: Horrible and Ironic Stories of Forgotten Americans (Paperback)
A fantastic collection of extreme and bizarre biographies, detailing the lives of down-trodden little guys getting brutally shafted, the way that little guys usually do. This book is a testament to the greed, ignorance and indifference to suffering of human beings. Ken wisely refrains from infusing too much personal opinion, and just lets these well-written short stories speak for themselves. It is left to the reader to make the plausible extrapolation that such injustices are still being perpetrated today. The only forces that have ever motivated human beings to abandon personal goals and attempt to improve the world are not the hollow and sanctimonious words of moralists, ministers and holy books encouraging people to "Love their neighbours" and "Do good deeds", but flaming and outrageous injustices. This book provides examples of these in abundance. Certain to awaken the moral sense of all but the most greedy and hard-hearted among us, this book is sure to bring a tear to the eye of every CEO and politician in the land. Please read this book and when you've finished, give the book to someone else to read. Alternatively, if you think that Ken Smith deserves a few more cents in royalties for his hard work, then buy them a brand new copy instead. As the final words on the back cover says: Some things are just not right!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful in its exposition of what unfairness life may hold, 27 July 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Raw Deal: Horrible and Ironic Stories of Forgotten Americans (Paperback)
This book is so well written. I wish so deeply that others will pick up a copy so that the people Ken Smith writes about shall not be forgotton in death as they were in life.
