“Thick Black Theory is a unique work on the cultivation of power and effectiveness. Its frank, amoral language conveys that it is a neutral tool. It is not a vector; it has force, but no direction.
The strengths of Jon Anxin’s translation of “Thick Black Theory” are that it is honest, without resorting to sugar-coating in order to please (i.e. Thick Face), and that it exists within the context of all his other work. It answers questions, and brings up others, and these Jon addresses in his larger body of free material on his site. While the amoral nature of Thick Black may be unfavorable to some readers, the message rings absolutely true, and comfort can be had in the fact that Jon Anxin elsewhere teaches about power in the context of morality.
I highly recommend this book. It was and remains an important work, and Jon Anxin provides the context and instruction for its positive application. Look into him, you won’t regret it.”
