A must read for any Marley fan. . .

Created: 07/03/07
This is def. a must read for any Marley fan, b/c it is given from the perspective of probably the person who knew him the best. . .his wife, Rita. It gives you an idea of who Bob was as a person, not just an international singing superstar. It takes about his personnal life, such as his family, his background, and his infedelity. I highly recommend it to all Marley fans!!!
