I bought this book after seeing Common on the Daily Show some time back.
I liked the way Common came across over the tube and decided I was going to buy this book, which he was plugging.
This man has had a lot of life experience in space of 40 years. It's really interesting to have his mother comment on different chapters of his life too.
I am a hip-hop fan, but this book will appeal to anyone that want to read a book about a man and his relationships with music and people.
