    The billionaire in China getting merked around it piqued my interest, ngl. But the fact that it won the Hugo, is being made into a Netflix series and they're using the same producers as GoT sealed it for me.

    Speaking of books though, check out Libro.fm to cop Audiobooks if you can. They split the profits with bookstores of your choosing. I settled on a local black bookstore that I'd never even heard of prior. Did my research and decided to throw some change their way.

    Great book.

    Touches on so many different topics, historical figures and events.

    I'd suggest anyone to pick this up as it doesn't focus on Kareem and his basketball career very much.

    It focuses more on the Harlem Renaissance and how that movement influenced America as a whole as well as himself.

    Takes place in China during the cultural revolution and into the future. They discover radio transmissions from an alien planet. It’s about preparing for an alien invasion hundreds of years in the future.

    I only got through the first book. It’s a really dense read. Lots of hard hard science and physics. I told myself I’d pick it back up but thr was several years ago lol

    I'm listening to an audio book or Quigley's book. I have the book too.

    I'll check everything else out on your list.

    Lucifier principle seems interesting
