Recommended to Abhishek by: Self

This text is clearly the definitive work in the field of the history of man in (and of civilization itself) in the east Sudan and Nile Valley. It pays true homage to all that is great about our royal legacy, is a salutation to the Great Pharaohs and kings of Nubia, is an affirmation of their true self identity -- i.e., of original Blackness and African autochnothous ingenuity in all matters unknown to that contemporary world -- and it smashes the old "white lies" which we will now call Eurocentr
Dare to read and discover the truth that has been hidden from the world by "euro-centric scholars". A giant of a man has written what could be the greatest books on our story.

Reads like a stitching together of many lectures. As a result it is full of information but just a bit too loud for me. The excessive use of capitalization doesn't help. The author should have focused more on content than on volume and delivery
