Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Marley was the Third World’s first pop superstar. He was the man who introduced the world to the mystic power of reggae. He was a true rocker at heart, and as a songwriter, he brought the lyrical force of Bob Dylan, the personal charisma of John Lennon, and the essential vocal stylings of Smokey Robinson into one voice.” —Jann Wenner, cofounder and publisher of Rolling Stone

Being that this is from Cedella, I was hoping for some rare items to be thrown into the mix. In less than an hour you can finish the book, and your better off just putting on Kaya with some headphones and chillin out. For even a modest fan, I'd say skip this one and pick something else.
