    "I have no interest in Greek life myself, but I bought American Fraternity Man when I started seriously dating a fraternity member in college. We all know the stereotypes of a "frat bro," but this book goes beyond that, good and bad. I honestly did not expect to like it, but I couldn't put it down. "

    "I read this book (The Divine Nine) twenty times and my opinion of the book has changed each time. The importance of this? Just think how easy and well written a book is if you can take different meanings from a book at different stages of your life. Here is a mini recap of what I thought each time I read it... The Divine Nine: focused on the history of African-American fraternities and sororities in America. It was rich with the origin and culture of these historical frats. I would definitely recommend it!!! "

    "The best way I can describe this is "Catcher in the Rye, but nonfiction." It's a pretty depressing book. The author suffered a violent crime, and clearly lacked a sufficient support structure in his life. So he joins a fraternity, but ultimately just suffers at the hands of social abuse and humiliation in the guise of pranks and rushing. This is a sobering read, and it's really not for everyone."

    "My 15 year old daughter checked this book out from the library and when she was finished reading it, I picked it up to see what had captivated her attention. My daughter saw me reading it and it opened up some interesting discussions about what life was going to look like for her in a few short years as she approaches going away to college. The book was a good, quick read, but it gave my daughter some incorrect impressions of what college and sorority life is like."
