Akbar has built a wonderful case for the need for the inner journey. Who are we and why are we really here. Self-knowledge is the precursor to growth and Liberation.

Very short read, however very good. Although the book is targeted primarily towards African Americans, it isn't done in an overly racial and exclusive manner, it's an easy read for anyone of any race.
