In his own words, Raffi shares his journey from childhood in Cairo, Egypt to his adjustment to life in Toronto as a youth, to becoming a household name around the world.

As one of North America's most beloved entertainers and song-writers, Raffi and his music have made him a friend to millions of children and their families. Learn about the fascinating events that opened up the path for his musical success, and meet the people who helped him build a career that has included appearances at Carnegie Hall, meetings with word leaders, and hundreds of concerts in cities throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Readers who know his music (as well as those who are meeting Raffi here for the first time) will welcome this behind-the-scenes look at the man whose work honors both the world's children and the Earth. His heartfelt beliefs are more than just words: in fact, this book is itself as "organic" as possible, printed on chlorine-free paper with vegetable-based inks -- one step toward a healthier world

I wouldn't listen to the Publishers' Weekly comment on this. It's very important to know who is educating our children, the life behind the public face of any artist, and in this sense, getting to know Raffi as an adult in charge of kids (as opposed to direct-marketing to kids, a big "cause" of his...) is powerful & useful. So instead of critiquing the book in this way, the Publishers' Weekly review would have been more helpful if it had described Raffi's worldview in Coles Notes form. (I can't: I haven't yet read the book!...) Namaste.
