The Autobiography of Malcolm X
book
by Malcolm X, Alex Haley , Attallah Shabazz

Casey Neistat's Review:

My favourite book is the autobiography of Malcolm X. I’ve read that book 3 times, twice in a row; you can pretty much learn everything you need to know about life in that book.

Casey Neistat's Review:

For this inaugural Casey Neistat book club, the book that I am going to feature is the American Kingpin by Nick Bilton. Now I know Nick a little bit, he's a very smart guy he's an excellent reporter I knew him when he was a reporter at The New York Times. Now he writes for Vanity Fair or something. The thing about Nick is Nick wrote the book called hatching Twitter and I've talked about this here on this show before because it was reading his book hatching Twitter which is about how Twitter came to be that literally motivated me inspired me gave me the confidence to start my own technology company. This is his new book and it's about um it's about the Silk Road which was a like drugged website on the Deep Web that I didn't know about but apparently I was the exception a lot of people use Silk Road to buy an insane amount of drug and guns and poison and human body parts and all kinds of stuff see the Silk Road was like a like amazon.com but for cocaine and heroin and guns this book is about how this like 20-something year old nerd started this literally 1 billion dollar drug and at one point in time before this kid got busted this is all public like I'm not spoiler alert like this happened in real life he was like he was trafficking more drugs on planet Earth than almost anybody else it made him like worth nearly a hundred million dollars it sold billions of dollars worth of drugs that's what this is about this is a work of narrative nonfiction meaning this is like a truthful story this is this is a completely true story it's based on news reports FBI reports this guy's personal journal everything in here is factual but it reads like The Da Vinci Code it is unbelievably riveting it does that thing where at the end of every chapter it leaves you with just enough we're like aah and you have to read the first paragraph of the next chapter and then before you know it it is a downward spiral and you end up finishing this book which is took me four days to get through this and that's it for the first episode of the Casey Neistat book club.
