Book of Life is the second album by the Jamaican reggae artist I Wayne. It features his typically smooth voice over typical Jamaican rhythms. The album reflects I Wayne's personal philosophy of positivism and his stance against rude boy culture, which he blames for several of Jamaica's problems.

In "Life Is Easy", he expresses his view that the only way out of suffering is to be grateful for the positives in one's life. "Jealousy and Abuse" deals with the problem of domestic violence. "Annihilation" has a deceivingly mild and upbeat tune while calling for the annihilation of Babylon (Rastafari collectively refer to the people in power within the established system as "Babylon", and believe that they conspire to oppress the poor).
