Truth as an impediment.

My husband and I have been enjoying an autobiographical book on tape. I’m not sure I can recommend it yet because, while enlightening, challenging and thought provoking, F-bombs drop like candy from a pinata..it is very intense! The man “speaks truth to power” though, and I am all about it- regardless of how it’s presented….
