"A new book, 128 Beats Per Minute, collects pictures of Diplo hanging out in exotic locales with beautiful people; the Travel Channel wanted to make a show documenting his journeys (it fell through); a Korean beer company paid him $80,000 to play a show with Major Lazer, his whimsical dancehall project; and billion-dollar brands from BlackBerry to Beyoncé have hired him (the former for an ad campaign, the latter for two songs on 4M), hoping that some of his cool will rub off." ~Rolling Stone

Being mostly pictures, everything is properly captioned and laid out in a very readable/viewable manner. Its like a visual insight into his life. If you want to complement this book have a look at the short documentary about diplo that is on youtube :)
Pretty pictures of good parties + global pit stops. Oh to be a world famous DJ / Producer / Beat pusher...
Some great photography and insight into the life of a ripper EDM producer.
I would of liked more written stories, but the ones included are spot on with the photos. Definitely worth having for any Mad Decent/Diplo fan :)
