    "Very soulful book that shows you the injustices that black Americans used to face in America. Such a timeless classic that shows us what it is to be an American. "

    "I wanted to know about the black panther party, and this book does not suit my needs. This was published in 1903, long before the Black Panthers existed. This is completely unsuitable for my needs."

    "This book is amazing. It definitely should be included in the 20th century American reading list"

    "Thinking about this author's life and accomplishments is truly humbling. He grew up and lived through the "Jim Crow" era and became the first African-American to earn a Ph.D. from Harvard. The introduction of the book frames the book very well: "Du Bois achieves in his text a rare combination of pathos and dignity, presenting a portrait of black culture that demands respect." A must read. "

    "This was definitely a great read. It shines light of issues that were going on during its time but sadly are still going on to this day."

    "Few people have written so incisively about the culture and mentality of a people as W.E.B. Du Bois wrote about black Americans. I read this book in college and it blew my mind with its knowledge and understanding."

    "This book seems a little outdated and a little racist. It did not appeal to me. "

    "This book could be one of the "best" books because it is #68 in category Books > Literature & Fiction > History & Criticism > Regional & Cultural > United States > African American. However the description above cuts off mid-sentence (not sure if that's intentional or not). Depending on if the searcher is looking for fiction or non-fiction, this book could be relevant to their wishes."

    "I first read The Souls of Black Folk in high school. I think this book changed my life. It is some of the best writing I have ever seen. I don't think any other book captures the black experience in America as well as W.E.B. Du Bois does here. I also think his other works are worth reading."

    "This was an interesting book to read due to the fact that all the points the author makes is still relevant today even thought it was written over 100 years ago. Although this non-fiction work emphasizes the stark reality that is America both back in 1903 and now, it is a phenomenal read. The only downside is that parts of the book are rather long-winded, however it makes up for this with the sheer amount of inspiration and calls-to-action found within this book."
