What did the industry reviewers have to say?

Reggae Larger Than Life is an excellent bookMel Cook (Gleaner writer, Jamaica)

I was brought up on a diet of great Reggae music.  I thought I had seen all the possible ways that this genre could be enjoyed.  But, this book shows that Reggae is indeed larger than life – Richie B (Veteran radio disc jockey and Reggae chart compiler) .

Reggae and Dancehall music is in our bones and we just love the way it keeps us going. This book is bound to reinforce that – Da’Ville (Reggae/R’n’B singer).
