"[This collection] is engaging and absorbing, and rewards the curiosity of those interested in the man, his group, and his additions to and influence on the culture. Considering the importance of the man and the revolutionary, highly ahead-of-his-time nature of his ideas, those not already aware of Sun Ra's story have good reason to use this book to begin learning about him. . . . A gentle introduction to, and celebration of, the life, philosophy, and creativity of Sun Ra and El Saturn."
