If you're a Rolling Stones fan, you've got to get this book." -- Steve Jordan, Grammy & Emmy Award-Winning Musician, Songwriter and Producer

"I wish I would have written The Message. The book is a testament to the powerful impact of hip-hop music as both an art form and life force. Pride provides a unique and important perspective for why hip-hop matters." -Michael Eric Dyson, author of Know What I Mean?

"The Message is an intellectual and artistic triumph. Her writing is at once personal, powerful, and prophetic. Her book-inspiring, funny, practical, and spiritual-will be long put to use . . . " -David E. Kirkland, Assistant Professor of English Education, New York University

"The Message resonated with my English students more than most classroom texts, and inspired them to think and write about the music that is meaningful to them. It is a great catalyst for writing, and students expended a great deal of effort in finding connections between music and their worlds, which in turn makes them better, more thoughtful writers." - Nancy Ferrone, Teacher, FLAGS High School

The Message: Life Lessons from Hip-Hop's Greatest Songs is a literary mixtape of wisdom that has been culled from the all-time greatest hip-hop songs in which author Felicia Pride examines a wide range of hip-hop songs and artists, interpreting life through their lenses. This free digital companion is designed to be a tool that assists educators who choose to adopt The Message in their classroom.

The guide includes the following: • Lesson Plans • Discussion Prompts • "The Message" Project Elements • Extension Activities • Academic Standards • Note from the Author • Plus more!

The Message turns the often negative perceptions of hip-hop completely around, offers a fresh perspective on why the culture is loved worldwide, and simultaneously provides motivational material for the hip-hop generation taken from its own unique artistic expression. In her introduction the author writes, "This book is about searching for the power within and using motivational aspects of hip-hop music to help us successfully maneuver our worlds." The Message unleashes the power in the music and leaves educators and students with a soundtrack of wisdom to incorporate in their own lives and the classroom.

    Buyer beware

    I heard about how fantastic Never Stop is by word of mouth without doing my own research. Talk avout remorse! What you are buying is an enchanced book that is 68 pages in length featuring a handful of short clips from Rona's 1989 interviews with Mick and Keith. Most of this footage has been kicking around out there on YouTube if you didn't catch it the first time around, although its likely the NBC lawyers will try to yank it down for copyright enfringement. Packaged with comments from Rona and her ticketstubs that illustrate her love of the band, any true fan could write an ode to Richards and Jagger that is at least as ardent, thoughtful and heartfelt than what you find here. Those of us who quietly respect from afar wish everyone in the organization a very happy 50th anniversary. Thank you for the music and memories that have provided the soundtrack to our lives. And here's hoping I can score a reasonable ticket to see you out there again soon!

    I LOVED this ebook and have recommended to others both young and old. We forget the context of the times - the Stones songs are "classic" now but were so radical when we first heard them. Rona captures Mick and Keith as artists and human beings who grow and evolve. What a delight to share this with my 17 year old son, a DJ, who knows the songs but now can imagine me at his age captured by the music as he is now. Then sharing this ebook with my 89 year old Dad, besides being fascinated by the technology, he had a new appreciation of the joy his 5 kids were experiencing as teenagers. Thank you Rona for sharing the journey. My whole family hopes you write more about the other artists you interviewed over the years.

    I posted this review on iTunes, and couldn't resist sharing it here! I would recommend this ebook to everyone! To say that I loved it would be an understatement! It's filled with personal insights Rona gained from her extensive experience as a rock and roll journalist, along with captivating footage of Mick and Keith in intimate interviews. Reading this book, I really felt as if I were there, talking to Mick and Keith myself. Between Rona's charm and wit, and Keith and Mick's thoughtful comments, the book provides profound comments on the nature of true artistry. This is a beautiful homage to not just the Stones but to all musicians and music lovers. You don't just read this book; you experience it. And I, for one, plan on experiencing it over and over for years to come.

    I got the book after seeing Rona Elliot on the Today Show and LOVE, LOVE LOVE this enhanced ebook. The interviews are interesting, thoughtful and often times funny. I LOVED seeing Mick & Keith up-close and personal. Unlike the other reviewer of this awesome ebook, I appreciate getting a first hand account of what it was like to be there and to really feel like you are sitting in on the interviews! A++++ I highly recommend!
