Three people … One game. An African American political activist growing up in the “hood” of South LA, a white millionaire computer science nerd turned film producer and an ex-southern belle turned journalist make the same discovery: the game is happenin’ in boardrooms and bordellos, back streets, Main Streets and Wall Street – and it’s all the same game.
Everybody wants to ‘come up’ and the game is what’s ‘going down’ all the time – from corporate greed to political one-upmanship to the media spinning it all to their liking. To survive in this world you gotta have game. And sometimes it helps to see it is its rawest, simplest sense.
Colorful, no-holds-barred and incisive, GhettoPhysics: redefining the game teaches readers how to recognize life’s survival game as it plays out in economics, politics, medicine, media, religion and other areas of society. A hip coaching tool, GhettoPhysics supplies strategies on how to master, and even potentially awaken from, The Game.
Approximately 200 pages long, the book blends concise yet potent (ghetto-direct) author exposition with substantive quotes from the film’s diverse interviewees, including racial justice advocate Dr. Cornel West, economist and author John Perkins, former US Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, rappers Ice-T and Too-Short, activist music producer KRS-One, and TV writer/producer Norman Lear.
Using a game board motif throughout to unify the material, illustrated with pictures from the film, with pithy author sidebar commentaries, each of the fourteen chapters ends with a series of questions and ideas the reader can use for hands-on, experiential learning, a highly effective tool for Millennial (GenY) readers. Incorporating video clips from the movie in an enhanced ebook version is an exciting possibility for this product targeting adult audiences age 20-45.
