To become Powerful we must implement Power-building strategies. Our ancestors, from Marcus Garvey to Jean-JaqcuesDessalines, Khety ya Saba to Julius Nyerere have utilized and explained their Power-building strategies and exemplified the characteristics of modern leadership. "The Book of Power" analyzes and formulates a synthesis of the most effective African leaders and strategies, equipping its readers with a mindset worthy of the title "Ankobia," those who will pioneer Prosperous, Independent African Nations. In addition to critically analyzing and sharing dozens of speeches and documents, the references portray good oratory prowess, an essential trait for modern leaders. African people need to utilize our collective ancestral wisdom to develop and defend advanced economies and undue foreign influence on our continent; "The Book of Power" is the compilation and examination of that collective ancestral wisdom.
