    Last night while I was at Barnes & Nobles [hoping to get the Covenant], and I picked up From N!ggas to Gods by Akil. Although I have not completed it, the message is quite strong. Have any of you read this book? And if so, what did you think of it?

    Yes, i read both oh his books about ten years ago... The brother writes in away that's straight to the point. I enjoyed reading both of his books and I would also recommend reading. Portraits of White Racism. by David T Wellman.

    Yes, I've read volumes I & II. They are mainly targeted for younger readers. Akil cuts straight to the point. He has written a couple other books also, and they are all about the restoration of the Black mind to a state of godhood. I found a lot of humor in volume I. You'll be surprised how many Afro-centric books Barnes & Nobles carries.:read:

    I am glad that someone has understood him. I say that based on this-

    After reading the back of the book, I KNEW this brotha was not playing any games! That is how I have come to like it.

    For some reason, nowadays, I can FEEL my old belief system fading away, and a new belief system replacing it. This belief system involves hearing, seeing, and bearing witness to HARD TRUTH (the truth that people don't want to hear), and I have been able to handle it like nothing.

    For a second, I felt like putting the book down, and not reading it again (based on his message), but then I felt something else telling me that it is a true word, and I really was the man that I think I am, I would take it like a man!

    That is one of the lessons that I am learning from the book.
