Gr 4-7 Greenberg does little to educate his audience about this new and exciting musical form. Rather, his book is loosely organized into six short chapters which read much like notes on a record jacket. While Greenberg states, ``Fans want to hear the lyrics,'' he doesn't include any lyrics. There are few comments from Rap artists he discusses, and the biographies lack depth. The photographs, although good, are not well integrated with the text. This is only a surface glance at the subject, and not a real contribution to the study of this black art form. Norman N. Dilley, Rosemead Public Library, Calif.
