Naim Akbar is one of my favorites, he does a great job at defining manhood from the black mans view point. Short and sweet.
C. Williams

Great research material to support my thoughts on women successfully raising sons.
Dayshawn Obi
Very eye opening and inspiring book recommended for all young brothers or those who are in the process of becoming conscious about the culture.
the perception that is portrayed in this book is truly exemplified in our everyday community. the concept that most of the men of our generations are just boys putting on a masquerade that they are men. they may have the physical attributes but the mental and psychological aspects are not there.
Isaiah Johnson
Book about awakening your inner divinity and self-definition. Difficult read but again well worth it and greatly inspirational particularly for African-American males seeking to become Black Men.
Azhar Mcneal
Naim Akbar keeps it short and sweet (as usual). A must read for all Black Men. (I would recommend that Black Women read it as well)
