Produktbeschreibung
The Wu-Tang Manual is The RZA's first written introduction to the philosophy and history of Hip-Hop's original Dynasty, the Wu-Tang Clan.

Written in a style that is at once personal and philosophical, The Wu-Tang Manual unravels the intricate web of personalities (and alter egos), warrior codes, numerological systems, and Eastern spiritual ethics that define the Wu-Tang dynasty. Packed with information that reflects the breadth and depth of the RZA's - and rest of the Clan's - intellectual interests and passions, The Wu-Tang Manual is divided into four books of nine chambers each, for a total of 36 chambers. All together, the book provides the breakdown of essential Wu-Tang components, from basic information about each of the nine core members of Wu-Tang Clan to deeper explorations of the key themes of the Wu-Tang universe, a dictionary-like Wu-Slang lexicon, and an entire section of Wu-Tang lyrics with densely annotated explanations of what they mean. For the hardcore Wu-Tang disciple and the recent initiate alike, The Wu-Tang Manual is the definitive guide to the essence of Wu, one of the most innovative hip-hop groups of all time.

The RZA's most recent book, The Tao of Wu, is also available from Riverhead Books.

Rezensionen
Touching A glimpse inside the brain of the RZA, the producer/spiritual leader of Staten Island s revolutionary hip-hop collective, the Wu-Tang Clan .Inspirational. The New York Times Book Review
 
Is there a Pulitzer Prize in the Wu s future? XXL Magazine
 
At once edifying and wildly entertaining, [The Wu-Tang Manual] occupies a fertile emotional crossroads of nostalgia, juvenile wish-fulfillment, and adult appreciation it could augur a rebirth for one of the most influential rap groups of the 1990s. Pitchfork
 
A rabbit hole into the Clan s history and obsessions with kung-fu films, numerology, chess, and Eastern spirituality. Entertainment Weekly
 
Equal parts travelogue, manifesto, dictionary and cultural decoder ring for one of hip-hop s most influential and unorthodox rap groups It s quite obvious that the nine-member crew is as adept in analyzing Eastern philosophies, chess strategies and numerological systems as they are in smoking ells and dodging bullets.
