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

Nothing wu related but check out The Exile by Allan Folsom. The 700 pages might throw you off at first but I can bet after page one you be glued. 2004

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.

Peace

Then move on to..

A Farewell To Arms by Ernest Hemingway
Fear And Loathing In America by Hunter S. Thompson
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry
Demon Box by Ken Kesey
The Way Of The Shaman by Michael Harner
The Red Letter Plays by Suzan-Lori Parks
Geek Love by Katherine Dunn
Franny And Zooey by J.D. Salinger
None But The Lonely Heart by RIchard Llewellyn

And maybe after you'll realize that the Wu-Tang Manuel isn't the greatest book ever written. When you read all these then maybe you'll be prepared to write your own novel. Peace
