Varying styles of narrative and techniques of persuasion comprise We are the Weather. In addition to stories and stats, Foer's literary expressions range from an anti-suicide note to a re-imagined dialogue between Jan Karski and the Justice skeptical of the emergent Holocaust. I've never read a book quite like it. Needless to say, my shopping cart had even less eco-unfriendly foods during my recent trip to the supermarket.

Race for Profit deconstructs the policies and industry practices under which Black homebuyers became a new market of mortgagees. Ultimately, Taylor seems to sober the cautioning of her conclusion. Sobering it may be, but I think Race for Profit narrows the information asymmetry between the Black prospective homebuyer, the lender, and the appraiser.
