But if you don't know anything about those artists and labels, do not use this book as an introduction. As mean as it may be to say, people are reading this book to find out about Dr. Dre and his history, not t ...more

This the most poorly written book I have ever read. I truly wonder who the target demographic is for this book.

I would give this negative stars if i could. A true waste of paper.
