    • I just received this this morning and have only read a few chapters (Amy Poehler's video critique, and Andre Leon Talley's fashion reviews, in addition to the intro from Ad Rock and his loving characterization of MCA;it's clear this book is truly a gift to their fans; It finally occurred to me what I have loved about them all this time, the ease and awareness they have of themselves. Thank you Ad Rock and Mike D. RIP MCA, and thanks for everything.
    • Hearing their voices tell these stories directly (and with all the special guests) is the best. Thank you for making this for your fans!
    • Dope.
    • So far pretty damn funny.
    • Great fun, highly recommend.
