In this remarkable and timely book, bestselling author Barbara Coloroso turns her attention to genocide: what it means, where it begins, where it must end. Through an examination of three clearly defined genocides, Coloroso deconstructs the causes of genocide and its consequences, both to the immediate victims and to the fabric of the world at large, and proposes the conditions that must exist in order to eradicate this evil from the world. Based on the author's 20 years of research and extensive travel, Extraordinary Evil is an urgently needed work in an age when acts of genocide seem to occur more frequently and are in the public's consciousness more than ever before.
Barbara Coloroso is an internationally recognized speaker and author in the areas of parenting, teaching, school discipline, nonviolent conflict resolution, reconciliatory justice, and grieving. Her bestselling books include kids are worth it! , Parenting through Crisis, and The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Coloroso captivated my attention for 3.5/5 parts of her book. Her idea's, quotes, statistics and personality had me hooked, until the book began to become a bit repetative. Her main arguments are strong, you'll find yourself nodding along to her points and frowning as she discusses horrific details of genocides, but at one point, if you are anything like me, you will find yourself skimming the book because of the repeatition. It also doesn't matter how informed you are in regards to genocide you are prior to reading it because Coloroso does a good job of explaining it to you very simply and straight foreward. All in all not horrible.
