    lol i found it cheaper online. any method of purchase tho, i recommend regardless.

    This isn't even in the same grade as TW-TManual.
    Its more of the story of RZA as if that wasn't obvious but the title is still just as fitting.
    the insight flows in and out when needed but the depth is a constant. he takes his days and notes them eloquently. i expected RZA to have a flow but this is told really well.
    i hear this n that about this book around the boards but i haven't heard if anyone has sat down and read this.
    If anyone looks at this like less of a book because it's from a rapper or it's a music-esqe book needs to wipe that from their mind.
    While it is about WU the book itself is very self-improvmental.

    i haven't ever completely agreed with the supreme mathematics (cause it seems like you just can't lose lol) i respect the insight. RZA is definitely a more intelligent being than i presumed.
    You won't find EVER a book like this from 50, Em, Tupac, etc...
    there isn't another hip-hop group or artist that can deliver this amount of wisdom.
    KRS maybe. i've heard some of his interviews and he can really break shit down (burger king lol)
    im still bummed at my 27 dollars spent as i've never spent that on a book ever (save a variant here or there) but i'm straight.
    i can't say "i'd recommend this to every Wu fan" or whatever cause there is an underlining notion the Wu brings forth that some just don't catch but if you think the book sounds good or your intrigued at all i can say you won't be disappointed.

    [ODB] left us with two lessons.
    The first i never want anyone to forget:
    When you enter the path of wisdom, of knowledge, of life- don't turn off that road.

    .....I hope you realise that "Wu-tang clan" is a Chinese term. The martial art sect practiced by the Taoist in China are the Wu tang Clan. Tao = tao, the word Wu = martial/combat/fighting

    What? I've spent thousands on college books alone. And I've dropped some heavy paper for some good non-fiction books in the past. $27 is a drop in the bucket.
