The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Between the World and Me - Ta-Nehisi Coates - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Between the World and Me:

A letter to my son.

My favorite Ta-Nehisi Coates quote from the book:

"But what one "means" is neither important nor relevant."

Questions to ponder while reading Between the World and Me:

Why is this crap still happening?

Is it ever okay to touch another person's kid?

My thoughts about Between the World and Me:

4 billion is a sickening number.

I agree with Toni Morrison.

Where do we go from here?
