This historic album from America's foremost commentator on everything provides telling and hilarious insight into Black's earlier years in standup, before The Daily Show, before the Grammys, and before the massive fame. The Prophet CD was recorded in late 1990 while Lewis was on tour and exemplifies his acid-tongued wit, his prescience about what matters, and his hilarious takes on the politics of the times.

    " I loved it. Very wise man. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 1/30/2014

    " For such an acclaimed book, it just didn't really hit me. Maybe I just didn't get it or I've read similar things in the past which softened its impact somewhat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tadhg Jonathan | 1/30/2014

    " A series of 'short stories' within a fairly short story, and more.....and each will get you thinking, deeper and more spiritually than before. Gibran has a way with words, and great thoughts, and writes so well that on each page you'll find yourself going 'aha', or 'oh!' or 'oh my....'. Some of the stories can be cread within two minutes and so are more like modern-day parables. Hugely recommended. Great to read from cover to cover and/or have on the coffee table for the occassional evening read etc, great for a birthday or Christmas gift. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Earl Dizon | 1/13/2014

    " The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran. This was a story I've been meaning to read and it was only after someone recommended that I should do so that I did. It was simple, beautiful life lessons presented as poetry. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dennis Diehl | 1/11/2014

    " Perhaps profound and seemly important to one who has not yet lived life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Manashree | 1/10/2014

    " Borrowed this book from a fellow passenger on a train journey on the longest train route of India, Jammu-Tawi to Kanyakumari and finished reading it during the journey and returned the book to him. Enlightened. It was way back in 2000. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nikhilesh | 1/10/2014

    " guide to hidden mysteries of life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deacon | 12/25/2013

    " Has to be one of my favorite books of all time. The chapter about Joy and Sorrow has been repeatedly read in times when I was either heartbroken or healing. Please read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy | 12/14/2013

    " Beautiful. Thought-provoking and very moving. Reminded me of the poet Rumi. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill | 11/25/2013

    " I have to say "amazing," because when I read it so many years ago, when I was not quite 13 yo, it turned my world upside down and inside out. This book was my coming of age... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cat Cohen | 10/31/2013

    " A cornerstone of my world view. I'v read passages from this mystical book at memorial services for the comfort and wisdom it commuicates. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taj Martin | 10/30/2013

    " I received this as a birthday gift one year from someone that was very close to me at the time & it's been one of the best gifts that's I've ever been given. I love this book & I suggest it along with other books to people. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen Lewin-Hicks | 10/22/2013

    " Written as a metaphor for death? Death as experienced by the living? This exposition and explosion on the basic tenets of living a bold love-filled life is a must read for all. An abandonment, of all one thinks he knows of living, is death indeed. Gibran is a master at love expressed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jimmy Nathan | 8/24/2013

    " Inspiring, motivational and extremely thought provoking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eli | 7/2/2013

    " Spoke volumes to my own life at the moment I read it. I think it may have such a universal quality to do so to anyone who should pick it up spontaneously when they need such writing to ground their being. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 6/7/2013

    " I would quote this entire book every day if I could. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moqbel | 4/10/2013

    " it's just a great book to read, but i prefer the Arabic version more than the English tho. Love Gibran so much "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jesse | 4/5/2013

    " Lovely. I give this book as a wedding present a lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 1/5/2013

    " Lovely writing, but it's hard for me to remember anything after finishing it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lyric | 12/4/2012

    " Read this when I was in college... just beginning my search for myself. This book spoke to me in a way that made me feel I had never actually read anything with meaning before. Thinking of it now, I believe I must go back and read it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Florentina Hensley | 8/21/2012

    " One of my favorite books- so profound speaking about universal truths "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sahil | 6/4/2012

    " The book is like a spiritual guide for me. The words are wisdom and I try to read it as much as possible. It is good in terms of guiding about morals and principles. "
