eventhough it contains very little information about dreadlocks, and the majority of the information that it DOES contain is erroneous, incomplete, or simply made up by the author and her clique. She is apparently ignorant of the fact that dreadlocks date back to the beginning of time in ALL cultures, not just black culture (for example, ancient celtic warriors wore dreads, as did the Maoris of New Zeland), although she makes up for this in part by classifying dread-wearers such as the Shivites of India as "african". This is an even greater pity considering that THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE originated in Ethiopia, a fact she is ignorant of, eventhough it would support some of her claims. (Should I tell her that Bob Marley's father was white?) It is a damn shame to see a book like this used to perpetuate the isms and scims of Babylon (and hustle customers into her hair salon), rather than to promote the upful and positive dread vibe and the truth of Rastafari. If this...
This was an amusing little book that was about a 20 min read start to finish.(I'm by no means a speed reader. Too much quasi-spiritual blah blah and not what I wanted to know. What I wanted to know was much more in the way of technical information and illustration, and nice photos. Nice try trying to market everything from products, to videos, classes etc etc etc. In a word this book was "boring".
I give my review this title because i haven't seen any other book available that will help anyone thinking of locking their hair the way this one offers to. It took me a year or so to make my decision and this book is one of the reasons that helped carry me along in my journey. It dispells all misconceptions about locks..and theres nothing dreadful about our hair. Gives a brief history with pictures and all. If you're looking for the how-tos or any fashion aspect of locking hair then this book is not for you. Its about knowledge, acceptance and preparing yourself for the changes that will catapult you into your path. On my first visit, my loctician handed me this book and i was proud to say that i had already read it..(didnt say how many times) The only problem i had with the book is that it was too short. It left me wanting more, but then I suppose thats a good thing. My Thanks to Sister Evans!
