Default I just finished reading the Wu-Tang Manual

go to your local bookstore and buy it. it is worth the money trust me. it includes:

biographies of all members
the producing equipment RZA uses
wu-tang slang glossary
several song lyrics with some of the lyrics highlighted telling you what it means
meanings of the religions that RZA was interested in
the supreme alphabet / nation of the gods and earths

I think i read it on the toilet in 2 days. The font is immense, there are about 40 words per page. I would call it 3rd grade reading material.

i read it in waldenbooks in the mall in about an hour while my girl was shopping. b-rock is right about the font being gargantuan in order to pad it out. it's a glorified pamphet, a good interview. wouldn't recommend buying it, there's so many more worthwhile books out there.
