Want to waste your time...

The narration was barely audible.jamaican accent of narrator was hard to follow. Book was so short and I learned so little. The narrator literally read web site addresses for 10 minutes. Awful experience

Exciting and riveting account of Bob Marley's life

If you are a fan of Bob Marley or even have a feigning interesting in him and his life and career, then this is the book for you. It delves into his roots and how he became the huge reggae star that he was. But it does not stop there, it also gives an understanding of the context that the world was in and how he shaped Jamaica, Pan-Africanism. It mentions his importance in the politics of Jamaica to the politics of Zimbabwe. There are even interesting backstories to his songs. Interesting book and the narrator was a pleasure to listen to!
