Synopsis:

Famed radio personalities Pete Fornatale, the man who put classic rock on the map, and Bill Ayres, an experienced spiritual counselor, invite readers to listen to their favorite tunes in an entirely new way. With humor, sensitivity, and a healthy dose of common sense, they cull four decades of great rock-and-roll lyrics and use "rock wisdom" as the foundation for 100 healing and uplifting meditations.

From the Beatles' belief that "All You Need Is Love", to the Stones' reminder that "You Can't Always Get What You Want", Fornatale and Ayres present messages about relationships, self-esteem, success, and parenting, found in the songs that form a nonstop soundtrack to our lives. Each of the 100 lessons includes information about the song and artist, a real-life situation that illustrates the lyric's theme, and suggestions for applying the insight to our lives.
