Publisher's Summary

Run DMC’s iconic rapper Joseph "Reverend Run" Simmons and his wife, Justine, share their secrets to lasting love and the guiding principles that have kept them together for more than 20 years. Written with Amy Ferris.

This is a book about love. The kind of love that will keep you warm at night - that will keep you feeling safe and sound.
The kind of love that will get you through some dark times; get you through some hard and yes, some tough times.
The kind of love that will make you laugh, that will make you smile, that will make you nod knowingly.
The kind of love that is nurtured and watered and grows - from a seedling to a flower.
The kind of love that is desperately needed in the world right now, shared and sprinkled everywhere. 

Old School Love is a book to help you find the kind of soul-filling love you desire, written by a couple who has built a strong and joyful relationship amid the pressures, pitfalls, and temptations of the entertainment industry. Rev Run and his wife, Justine, have been blessed with a devoted partnership that has inspired other famous long-term marriages, including Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and Jada Pinkett-Smith and Will Smith. In this homage to classic courtship, Rev and Justine reveal the secrets to their marriage’s longevity and happiness.

Each chapter of Old School Love offers stories, anecdotes, and memories of the Rev and Justine’s marriage, their family, their experiences, their passion, and their deep faith and belief in God. Some will make you laugh, some will make you think, and some will make you cry. Yet all will make you wiser - more beautiful for the wear - and encourage you to be a kinder, more generous, and better human. Their reflections are bookended by a verse or line from scripture, a saying, or a favorite quote and a sampling of personal wisdom they call "Justine’s Recipe" and "Rev’s Rules".

Over two decades strong, Rev and Justine’s partnership is an inspiration. With Old School Love, they are spreading their message of positivity, and creating a legacy for all of us to embrace and share. Powerful and life-changing, this little gem of a book is about magic, and miracles, and, yes, the irrefutable power of love.

Forever my Role Models for Love

I bought this book months ago and kept starting and stopping my read. Then I purchased the audible and in 2 days I completed it. It was their voices that was missing for me. I gained so much wisdom in this book as a newly wed. I’ve always loved their marriage and love for each other. I grew up watching them and this puts the icing on the cake . If I could I would personally thank them for this book. A must read and keep

So-so but had a few good reminders.

I love seeing these two together , great interviews , great chemistry, loved their reality shows , love run dm music ... but this story was a little flat for me. Nothing major revealing, a few good reminders, , and the narration was missing emotions or enthusiasm as if someone told them “please speak VERY slow” - still love them as a couple but this book was just so-so.

Hidden gem

I didn’t even know that this book had been released and it’s such a shame more people are getting to hear it because there is some beautiful wisdom in this book. I hope I can someday have a fulfilling marriage like this beautiful couple.
