    Default Book Recommendations?

    What's good?

    I wondered if you had any recommendations for books? The Rza touches on many topics, (theological, metaphysical, etc) in the Wu Manual and I wondered if you knew of ways to expand my knowledge?

    Fiction, non-fiction, reference...whatever...just something that doesn't make me stupider by reading it.

    And in exchange, here are some for you.

    1) The Autobiography of Malcolm X
    2) 'The White Boy Shuffle' by Paul Beatty
    3) 'The Fuck-Up' by Arthur Nersesian

    Thanks

    Essince

    There're more but I didn't copy the rest. This book is "Black Men: Obsolete, Single Dangerous?" (ISBN 0-88378-135-2) There's a list of 200+ books in this book and "The Black Student's Guide to Positive Education" (ISBN 0-9618815-0) has an extensive list of books and videos as well.

    Fear And Loathing In America by Hunter S. Thompson
    Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
    Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry
