Okay book not that bad but not that amazing

'Legends, Icons, & Rebel' is a book made of many short biographies. These artist are from the back then eras to even now. They give you a brief introductions how they were raised, how they became known,and how they impacted society with their own way of music . Many of the artist struggled against society worrying if the public neglected or accepted their way of music or the message they're trying to put out to the people. This book revolves around the theme never give up on your dreams as many of these artist had a rough start ,but never gave up. In my opinion I would recommend this book to a person whose has a major interest in oldies singers and learning about their struggles. in their career. This book is alright for just passing the time when there is nothing to do.

This title has:

Educational value
