    How long it took you to read this book? Did you use the study guide? Did you retain most of the info in their off the top?

    Damn 3 days though? That's mad quick but I guess you already knew most of the info. You read it in big hour chunks or something?

    When the Rocks cry out is interesting. I'd have to do more research though as I know the topic pisses off some people on this forum.

    I'm currently reading:

    Founding Fathers, Secret Societies: Freemasons, Illuminati, Rosicrucians, and the Decoding of the Great Seal. By
    Robert Hieronimus.

    And

    Black Rice: The African Origins of Rice Cultivation in the Americas. By Judith A. Carney.



    I'm not that interested in founding fathers, but I'm determined to finish it.

    Good book that gives a highlight of Nigeria's history. I think it glossed over the Biafran War and the socio-economic ramifications that have resulted from the fall out of the war. All in all, I think it summarizes Nigeria's history quite well, although contemporary political commentary/analysis is missing. If you'd like to understand a bit about Nigerian history then this is a good start, although I'd say one would want to complement this book with another book for sake of breadth.

    Nigerian/Black author or nah? Might order it...

    I’m reading Humanitarian Imperialism by Jean Bricmont. This and Capitalism: A Ghost Story by Arundhati Roy are the two most important books I read this year. Of Water and the Spirit was the best book I read in 2018 however.
