I enjoyed the brief and short inspirational notes and believe the way book is written it makes a great coffee table book and discussion piece for others in your home. The way the author divided the sections by Motivation, Creativity, Reinvention, and Wellbeing is a clever way to inspire the reader to sections on how these authors have coped thru life as well as learned from their daily struggles and challenges. The book is simply "Reflections" by many hip-hop authors, and I know that some criticized the choice of some of the artists but that in no way should keep you from picking up this book. The reflections are honest and are their thoughts in giving guidance, and inspiration to others. I enjoyed the cover which is beautifully done and is very eye catching giving you a glimpse of several of the artists who have given you their thoughts.
