The Autobiography of Malcolm X
This autobiography is a powerful testament to the extraordinary life and message of Malcolm X, the Muslim leader, anti-integrationist, and "most dangerous man in America." Written with veteran writer and journalist Alex Haley, the searing pages take us on a journey from Malcolm X's childhood poverty to his growth as the Nation's foremost spokesman for Islam and the Black Muslim movement. His message of power, pride, and self-determination is as relevant today as it was in the 1960s.
I was blown away by the determination and commitment that Malcolm X had to his people and to fight against a system that was not designed to support or help him or his people. – source

The Rejuvenation Breakthroughs That Could Reverse Human Aging in Our Lifetime
Ending Aging explores the possibility of extending our productive, youthful lives by substantially slowing down the aging process. Aubrey de Grey believes that eliminating aging-derived debilitation and death entirely is within reach. In the book, he and his research assistant Michael Rae describe the details of this biotechnology and how it can be achieved by periodically repairing the accumulation of various types of damage in the human body. By demystifying aging, the authors systematically dismantle the fatalist presumption that aging will forever defeat the efforts of medical science.
