C&B BOOKS, was started in 1995, by Carol Rogers & Brenda Piper.The motivation behind this book business, was the lack of affordable books written by black authors.  We decided to become an asset to our Youth and the African American community in a whole.  We offer our books for less then the major stores, we knew this would provide our readers with a wider variety of reading material. We have, titles for all ages in all catagories, fiction, non-fiction, spiritual, inspirational, educational etc.

One goal we have for Please Return My Phone Call is for it to provoke the reader to engage in introspective analysis regarding their habits of personal communication. We want to encourage them to connect the dots between personal integrity and accountability to their professional communication style - to ask themselves: "Who am I?" "Am I impeccable with my word?" "Can I be relied on to follow through?" "What is my integrity level and can it be improved?" "How will my life improve if my habits change?"

We believe that personal habits bleed into the fabric of professional behavior. When an individual has poor personal habits in the area of communication, the transfer of these proclivities into the workplace negatively affects the well being of the enterprise and too often the company's bottom line.

Another goal is to promote dialogue around this issue that can lead to useful solutions for meaningful change. To facilitate this process we offer personalized workshops for corporations, educational institutions and other organizations to co-create blueprints for change within the individuals and thus the enterprise.
