    Depends on what you are interested in and your level of knowledge already.

    Jared Diamond's Guns Germs and Steel is a good starter for beginners into world history.

    In all honesty waxna ma ka fahmin boogan. However, I take the stance that Tegmark shouldn't be considered as an intellectual but as a sci-fi novelist.

    Anyways this is a "Tube Book"; whole purpose of the book is for commuters to read the cover and think "Maash'Allah! Ninkanuu waa mutacalin". Breaking stereotypes. Black guy reading a book on the fucking universe is not something you come across.

    The old geeljires were full of pride and honor. My favorite quote from him is when he refused to pay tax at Berbera and when he said They are making our children their children in refernces to the Christian missionaries work in Somalia

    We will relive those years very soon In'sha'Allah

    Why do some people hate on this book? I thought it was a great read but it seems to attract too much criticism.

    Republic by Plato. The book puzzled me already by the first pages especially by the discussion on what a just man is. I disagree heavily on what Plato said, especially when he alluded that a just man shouldn’t not partake in a bad deed even when it’s in the defense of justice otherwise according to him even if you are just partaking in a bad deed for the sake of what is good it makes you bad as well, he also thought that a just man cannot define and say who a bad man is which is ludicrous but still understandable in the same sense
