I have studied and sought out ways to learn as well as teach knowledge of self in a way that won't be too complicated for people that haven't been exposed to higher principles of math and science, supreme wisdom, and our true history. This book has been such a gateway to teach and break down the knowledge, wisdom and understanding, as well as who the Nation of Gods and Earths really are beyond speculation. I suggest this book for anyone with a void in their heart, any doubt, or family members, e ...more

This book is packed full of information about history and knowledge as it relates to people of color. It does include a lot of doctrine/opinions about the 5 percenters and the Nation of Gods and Earths, which I am not apart of either of those groups, but you would have to be a fool to say that some of the knowledge dropped in this book isn't relevant and makes sense. Another thing I like about this book is that they include a lot of sources and references to back up what they talk about which op ...more

This book is a powerful and relevant read to anybody who's interested in finding or furthering their knowledge and understanding. There are parts I either didn't see relating to my own life or parts that were deeper then my own present knowledge in some topics, but a lot I found spoke truth and sense. It's something you need to take in parts and re-read or take time to digest, you cant just skim through and expect anything out of it.
I've read a lot on the NGE or 5% over the last six months and

This is a valuable book of wisdom consisting of a series of essays, short stories, and poetry covering a variety of topics such as self-cultivation, the power of the mind, physical and mental health, family and relationships, world history as well as Nation of Gods and Earths (NGE) history, race, quantum physics, astronomy and religion/spirituality and much more written by members of the NGE themselves. Void of proselytizing, "Knowledge of Self" makes the culture of the 5 Percenters more accessi ...more

A poor attempt at changing the world. It is all about boot-strapping and calling yourself gods. Could work for the those in the midst of that community but offers nothing intellectually or philosophically.

Basically a tract for the Nation of Gods and Earths or the five percenters. An offshoot from the Nation of Islam.
