  • Doctor Dread (a Jewish-born American white man) is one of the foremost reggae producers and record label bosses in the world. This no-hold-barred memoir will be of great interest to all reggae fans.
  • The introduction by Bunny Wailer is a coup for this book and for Akashic. Bunny Wailer is revered, feared, and very mysterious. As a founding member of the Wailers (with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh), and the last living original member, his introduction will immediately confer a great deal of legitimacy on the book.
  • The book includes a photo insert featuring photographs of Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, Gregory Isaacs, and many other famous reggae icons.
  • The book should have a great market in Jamaica (via PGW).
  • The book also has chapters on mainstream American icons like Bob Dylan, who we're optimistic will blurb the book.
  • Publicize to major dailies, weeklies, music media, literary publications, alternative publications. Major radio and television push.
  • Akashic's promotion will have a strong social media component
