Schloss has written another great book about hip-hop culture. This time, he tackles b-boying by participating in and interviewing key members of New York's b-boy scene. The real strength of the book are the many interviews he quotes from and summarizes. This is a must-read for anyone interested in b-boying.

Because he is countering a number of academic books that adopts a more asbtract or philosophical tone, Schloss really emphasizes the importance of listening to the voices of the builders of b-boying and its participants. The downside of this approach is that he sometimes does not really analyze their comments, leaving the reader with what seems like overly-heroic images of the b-boys he quotes. Nonetheless, I would recommend this book to anyone. It is in my top 10 books about hip-hop.

This book really goes into great detail about bboying and everything bboying related. A must have for bboys/bgirls who are serious about this thing of ours aka hip hop culture. The author really done his "homework" on the bboying culture and doesn't sugar coat anything. Thank you Joseph Schloss for producing this well documented subject in the form of a well written piece. From a Bboy.

I really liked the book. It was really interesting to read about hip hop culture and reading about what we see in the media of what hip hop is and reading about what hip hop looks like in urban cities like New York.

Foundational in the study of hip hop. Early hip hop is is one of the most fascinating aspects of American popular culture. Unfortunately, until this book, a proper account of the seminal importance of dance didn't exist.

I purchased the Kindle version of this product for a class and was never able to view it on Cloud Reader. I asked support for help after waiting 12 hours to receive the book, and the representative told me that the transaction was still in progress. Now, weeks later, upon clicking on the title in my Cloud, I STILL get the same error message stating that "This title is not available on Kindle Cloud Reader."

Absolutely terrible service. Also, I would still like to either read this book, or obtain a refund; however, since no actual human beings apparently seem to work for Amazon, I doubt that this will be possible.
