Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Former Run DMC front man turned MTV superstar and father extraordinaire, Rev Run offers his personal insights and those of his wife, Justine, about family life in today's fast-paced and money-driven society. On the surface, the book appears to be the typical TV spin-off memorabilia. But the recording and messages are powerful and offer a raw honesty lacking in most of today's family guidance books. Rev Run is no stranger to the recording studio, and his knack for captivating an audience is on display here. His voice is strong and commanding, yet Run never speaks down to his listeners. Justine also gives a straightforward yet personal reading, and the result is less a recorded audiobook than it is a deeply profound talk among the closest of friends. A Penguin hardcover.(Aug.)

It has been both an honor and a pleasure reading this book. Rev. Run and Justine put so much honesty and love into telling their story like no one else could. I truly enjoyed learning the quirks that go behind the scenes and getting a better understanding of their rise to fame. They are truly the American Dream!

Wow this is a must read I applaud Rev Run & Justine Simmons for thier outstanding work on this book! I am looking for more good reads from this Married couple. I could not put the book down from the first day the book arrived...I was impressed with the stories and illustrations as well.I appreciated their transparency that was displayed in this book...I learned a lot from Justine Simmons and have more of a great deal of respect for her as a Women, Wife, Mother,Friend,Mentor & and of course a sis in Christ Jesus. I encourage everyone to buy this book because this is what is needed to day in this society that we live in today.

I really enjoyed reading Rev. Run's book. What I was most please with is that most of the advice he gives is Biblically based. While most people may not pick up their Bible, the may very well pick up a book that chronicles the life of one of their favorite TV families. I truly enjoyed it and actually purchased for a friend of mine who is about to get married. She has a daughter and her husband to be also has a daughter. I thought it would be a blessing to her to read.

This is a very positive book. Rev Run and Justine did an awesome job at "keeping it real" while giving some very good advice on how to raise children this day and age. I was initially hesitant to purchase this book because my children are still toddlers, however the advice given will stay with me for years. I can't imagine how different society will be if every parent followed the guidelines given in this book!
