    Robert Kiyosaki has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. With perspectives that often contradict conventional wisdom, Robert has earned a reputation for straight talk, irreverence and courage. He is regarded worldwide as a passionate advocate for financial education. According to Kiyosaki, "The main reason people struggle financially is because they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money."

    Story
    What did you love best about The Big Payback?

    Coming from a person who has watched (and listened) to the culture grow, it was fascinating to hear how all the little bits and pieces that I picked up over the years were related one way or another. Having grown up in New York during the period that most of the book takes place, it explains HOW events in Hip Hop came to be.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This book covers ALOT of players in the industry. It is hard to pick a favorite. I did find Rick Rubin's story to be very interesting.


    What about Kevin R. Free’s performance did you like?

    His voice and style were perfect for this story. His normal speech is comfortable to listen to and he also sprinkles in authentic slang when appropriate. You get the feeling that Kevin is familiar with the events in the book by the way he reads. On a funny note, he pronounces the rapper's name Treach as Treech. Based on Kevin's reading of this book I have searched for other books that he has done.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes. Hearing the story of what happened to DJ Scott La Rock. Being a fan it was common knowledge back then what happened to him but I did not know the particulars.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. Great performance. If you were of music listening age in the late 70's and are a fan you will gain great insight as to how each little progression came to be. And for all fans of Hip Hop, you will get accurate information on what occured to bring this music to the dominance it now enjoys.
