Format: Paperback
I like the format of this book - going through album-by-album with some backstory on the time frame of making the album, and then song-by-song on the album, and there are some good photos.

However...boy, did she need an editor. Loads of typos - from printing "Mesta" instead of Nesta (more than once!) or "bock" instead of back, to quotations that start but never end, to superfluous or missing punctuation, to partial sentences, to sentence structure that just makes no sense. Some of the typos were such that they changed the entire meaning of the sentence ("I was..." instead of "It was..."). Just frustrating and distracting.

Names are often mixed up and frequently misused, with name changes unexplained and unacknowledged (in one paragraph she refers to Bob's mom in one sentence as Cedella Marley, and as Mrs. Booker in the very next sentence). For someone who doesn't already know all the relationships of people to one another, remarriages, name changes, etc. it would be nearly impossible to follow who is who and their relationships to each other. She starts referring to and quoting Cindy Breakspeare long before she bothers to explain who Cindy even is. Again, if you know all this already, I guess not a big deal, just poor writing, but if you don't already know...well, the author isn't giving you any help here.

She also *gets the date of Bob Marley's death wrong*!!!!!!! In the text of the book where she talks about his return to Miami after failed treatment, and his subsequent passing, she says that he died on May 11, 19...82!!! She later gets it correct in a caption, but it's too late. This is an unforgivable error.
