from day one to the present its all in there. Its a bit un clear in parts though as the writer has done research to write it rather than sat down with Jay Z and wrote it from the horses mouth so to speak

HASH(0x9a0d96cc) out of 5 stars I read everything I can get my hands on re Jay-Z 19 Dec. 2012
By Peggy S. Brydie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I admire the man he has become...and the influence he has on our culture.
Just shows what focus and determination can accomplish.
HASH(0x9a1c0b7c) out of 5 stars Good for the casual fan 10 May 2014
By Bencarterstig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Interesting, although slightly less informative than I'd hoped. The book is a purely subjective analysis of his records and his life, and at times the reviews and explanations of songs and albums are a little tired and predictable. It is extremely in depth, with every album covered extensively. If you're looking for a re telling of the intimate details of jays life this isn't it. It's more of a bloated career retrospective.
HASH(0x9a1c0a80) out of 5 stars Great read! 4 Dec. 2012

This biography is extremely insightful and very informative on one of the greatest artists in the world. A must-read for any Jay-Z or hip-hop fan!

Great book, but he did not explain how he proposed to Beyonce! It's pretty deep of the journey to his big career and to the fame. Good book!
