The Philosophy & Opinions of Marcus Garvey
By Amy Jacques-Garvey
The second wife of Marcus Garvey, Amy Jacques-Garvey compiled this book, revealing the true mindset of one of the greatest Black leaders of the 20th century. By presenting Garvey's actual letters, speeches and writings, we can read HIS OWN WORDS, instead of another author's interpretation. The book also explains the actions of those who conspired to thwart Garvey's efforts (many of whom he actually mentions by name) and the conditions that brought about his eventual deportation. The book was very useful in showing Garvey's true feelings regarding the NAACP and W.E.B. DuBois, as well as his views on racism, Pan-Africanism, and how people of all races can co-exist in peace.

He's Just Not That Into You
By Greg Behrendt & Liz Tuccillo
This book gets rid of many of the myths that women create about men and dating.The bottom line is that men are not complicated and there are no mixed messages. If he doesn't ask you out, call you soon after a date, or want to come inside with you after a date, then he's just not that into you.
