Mar 21, 2017General Synopsis and Beginning Commentary— The purpose of this review is to simply provide current and future readers with a subjective review of the aforementioned work, which was written by Trayvond Souder and Jeremy Bell, both of whom write with simplistic expression in an endeavor to appeal to the intellectual, the broken, the fragmented, the artist, the expressionless, the Negro, the conscious man, the melancholy, the abandoned, and the profound.
