   Good read! I recommend it!
I think this book is a good introduction to the organizations that form the National Pan-Hellenic Council. I admit that it appeared as if there was a bias against some of the organizations in the way they were presented. Overall, I think it is a good book for anyone to learn more about the NPHC and I recommend it!

   Dissappointed: Not what I expected
I ordered this book on Tuesday along with the book In Search of Sisterhood and lets face it Amazon you really delivered, as I had both books completed by Friday and had read The Divine Nine that same night. I found more information by Googling each organization than I found in this book. The author appears to have just bundled known generic information and published it in a book with a few cheesy interviews from a few known members. It is now time to read In Search of Sisterhood, because I once read this book and loved it so much that I had to have my own copy.

   Divine Nine- An Insightful book
The Divine Nine provide an insightful outlook on the history of the nine divine organizations. I hereby recommend this book to anyone who is a Greek member or a prospective member of such institutions.

   GOOD READ!
I purchased this book originally to learn about a sorority I was interested in joining while in undergrad. Although I never joined the NPHC, I found this book to be extremely insightful! It is a must have for those interested in learning the history of these organizations and/or thinking about joining one.

   If you have questions concerning Greek life, this is the it!
This book was not only a great read, but it also answered questions that are vital for future Greek life participants. I shared this book with all my friends and we all shared the same experience. I don 't think the book was favored to any sorority or fraternity... in fact, it gave a good history of all. If you think that it was a bit biased due to his fraternity, it was probably due to their importance and origination of it all. I sincerely enjoyed it, Mr. Ross!

   Enjoyed reading this history
Was looking for something more specifically on Kappa Alpha Psi, but enjoyed reading this along with Everything to Know about Kappa an unlicensed historical factbook of Kappa Alpha Psi and they were informative. Of course, everything to know about Kappa along focused on Kappa Alpha Psi, but learning the beginnings of all the black frats and even the soros was interesting.

   The Divine Nine vs. The Elite 8
This book was received with The Elite 8 The Unauthorized Collective History of African American Fraternities and Sororities and both books were informative. It goes into the founders and their background, traditions and info on what all the greek language and Jargan speak. I like both books, but highly recommend the Elite 8 The Unauthorized Collective History of African American Fraternities and Sororities.

   I was disappointed
I've felt that this book had a lot of information for some organizations, when it lacked enough for others. For example, i did not see information about the founders of Delta and Zeta when information was available for AKA and SGRho. Also, in the end of the book, when it gave the general info about each organization, there were some organizations that he didn 't even fill a page for when others had 1+ pages. I feel cheated ''. I expected more from this book and received less.

   A Must Have!
As librarian, I would recommend that all HBCU and high school students review this title. The students will greatly benefit from the historical orgins of African American sororities and fragments. Let us celebrate our history and enjoy it!

   informative-yet be careful
The author completed his task and I aplaud him. As a member of AKA, I am offended that our beloved song was misquoted. To mention that the editor of this book is also a member. Which leads me to believe that there may exist other misquotes.
