This viewpoint was relayed as he spoke about the evolution (or de-evolution)

Now Mr. Summers is putting his money on it.
Krusader Publishing has agreed to contribute all funds generated from sales online, and donate them to fund literacy & mentoring workshops in Chicagoland public schools.
He also sites the 64% illiteracy rate in prisons as the primary reason that inmate book clubs are essential.
To further enforce that point, Krusader Publishing has created Convict Cooking Magazine to encourage inmates to read, think, cook, and cultivate their cognitive thinking skills. The magazine is free to inmates and funded by sponsorships, donations, and advertising.
So enjoy a good book and encourage the love of reading everywhere.
