Sebastian Robertson is a friend of mine and when he showed me his new book entitled Legends, Icons & Rebels, Music That Changed The World, I have to say I was thoroughly impressed. It introduces young adult readers to some of the greatest legends of music in a thoughtful and creative way. The authors have crafted a beautifully written, magnificently designed book which includes two bonus CD's full of music from all the stars mentioned in their pages.

This book is so good that even though it was designed to introduce a younger audience to all these music greats, it will be just as exciting to baby boomers who aren't as familiar with the backgrounds of these music icons as they should be.

Part memoir, part tribute, and all great storytelling ...

Here's the link to buy it from Amazon.
