If you are a Black American, Mama Rock's Rules is a wonderful "yes we can" book. If you're not...I'm legally White, and at no time did anything in this book make me feel excluded. This is a book of "Here's to us, who's like us" bragging by a family with plenty to brag about. My relatives have been known to indulge in similar reminiscences so I felt right at home.
So, if you've not already read this book and you want to read a celebrity family memoir, run don't walk. As usual: to buy the book here, send $5 per book + $5 per package + $1 per online payment to the address at the very bottom of the page. (In order to discourage spammers and scammers, the e-mail address at the bottom of the page belongs to a "Message Squirrel" account whose function is to sort out the correct e-mail address to which those who really want to buy a book should send payments.) You could easily fit Rock This into the package along with Mama Rock's Rules for a total of $15 (or $16 online). Since both authors are still living, both books are Fair Trade Books, which means that for each book you buy we send $1 to the author or a charity of his or her choice. And if you click on the link just below this paragraph for "A FAIR TRADE BOOK," that "Label" will open a page of links to even more books by living authors you could support...and at least one of their books, possibly three, depending on sizes, could also fit into one $5 package.
