    I am never disappointed by Paul Edwards. He has a phenomenal understanding of the rhythmic underpinnings of rap and hip-hop music. I have read both of his books and learned a lot about the genre and also about the use of language. I'm not a rapper but I am a public speaker and have been able to incorporate some of the flow techniques into my speeches to grab and hold the audiences attention.
