Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A rock band on the cusp of massive stardom, Unlocking the Truth is made up of three thirteen-year-old African American boys: Malcolm, Jarad, and Alec. When not in school they spend their time as rock stars opening for the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Motorhead, and Guns N' Roses, and crowd surfing at Coachella, recently signing a major album deal with Sony. The key to their success: hard work, dedication, passion, and focus on their art.

Part memoir and part guide book, the boys share the essential truths and principles, such as faith, determination and friendship, that led to their success and continue to drive them. The book will inspire and be a resource for kids looking to realize their own dreams, as well as parents who want to support their children's aspirations.

Synopsis:

This is a collection of peoms from the late Tupac Shakur.

Synopsis:

His talent was unbounded, a raw force that commanded attention and respect.

His death was tragic — a violent homage to the power of his voice.

His legacy is indomitable — remaining vibrant and alive.

Here now, newly discovered, are Tupac's most honest and intimate thoughts conveyed through the pure art of poetry — a mirror into his enigmatic life and its many contradictions.

Written in his own hand at the age of nineteen, they embrace his spirit, his energy...and his ultimate message of hope.

About the Author

Tupac Shakur recorded twelve landmark albums — nine of which went either platinum or gold. A consummate actor, he also appeared in six major motion pictures, including Poetic Justice, Juice, GridLock'd, and Gang Related. He was murdered at the age of twenty-five.

I think that this is a book that anyone could just sit back and read and actually relate to it. Tupac stood as a symbol for courage and thug motivation. When he wrote his poetry, it seemed as if he was rapping in directly from his heart. If I had a choice to go on a mind blowing trip to the Bahamas or somewhere, I would take this book along with me and spend all of my time in the room reading it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
