Been a while since i took a looks at this one… i mean, i’ve been reading, but it’s been a while since i actually wrote anything about it… so diving back in, let’s take a look at the introduction and see how Tommy has set the scene for us, shall we?…

First off, there’s some shout outs, where Tommy gives credit and thanks to all his friends and family and supporters throughout the writing process… and then comes the official introduction… “I love the church. I love hip-hop”… off to a good start since many people think these two statements don’t agree with each other… i think, however, that the audience for this book would’ve already gotten that these two loves can in fact coexist and therein, we have something of an issue with a confusion of audience – who the audience is and how they will be addressed… minor complaint, so let’s move on…

The book will be divided into three main parts, Tommy’s story, Hip-Hop’s story and Crossover’s (Tommy’s church) story… fair enough… i think it’s certainly a good idea to know who’s writing, what they’re addressing and what you can do to join in and that seems to be the thrust of the book and the sections should accommodate that well…

next time we’ll dive into section one…

peace… love… bdg…

    Well, they say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but they also say that the first impression is the strongest and possibly most important… (battling with the last impression)… so that little rant out of the way… here’s my initial thoughts on the book Un.Orthodox…

    The cover art is spectacular… i dig the font and the little touch of grafitti smudging… the three little icons coinciding with the three main sections of the book… it works well… and, being a shoe guy from way back, the Air Force 1’s definitely catch my eye and the graphic offers a nice combination of the three sections as well…

    The book itself is a good size, not too thick and intimidating… softcover is nice (i’m not too much of a fan of hardcover books because they don’t travel quite as well)… and the pages all have a nice bit of flare to them with background images and lyrics from the CD mixed in throughout…

    all in all it’s a visually appealing book that certainly targets the audience well and fits the market well…
