I'm surprised he's self-publishing, but I guess none of the houses picked it up for a few cool mill. Maybe it's a sign that things are changing.

Hate Hate/Hate Books
By all means, Kanye West, don't read a book when you can write one (sort of). The co-author of Thank You and You're Welcome ("52 pages -- some blank, others with just a few words -- and offers his optimistic philosophy on life. One two-page section reads, "Life is 5% what happens and 95% how you react!" Another page reads "I hate the word hate!"), has this to say: "Sometimes people write novels and they just be so wordy and so self-absorbed," West said. "I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book's autograph."
