For the cool kid who spits rhymes, Michelle Muir's playful and compelling debut collection of poetry Nuff Said (Mawenzi House) carries an off-the-hook beat they won't be able to resist. Muir uses a blend of language that draws from urban environments as well as her own African-Canadian rhythmic and polyrhythmic style to share her message about music, life and social politics. With cadence and conviction, Nuff Said keeps it trill.

For the dad who can rock an (air) guitar solo so epic it'll melt your face off, Listen Up! (ECW Press) by Mark Howard will be a shining note on top of the holiday gift pile. As a record producer, engineer and mixer, Howard has worked with some of the greatest rock legends of all time – from Bob Dylan to Bono. With this book, Howard grants us a backstage pass – an insiders view into the stories and secrets behind many of the most beloved albums in the genre. Earn bonus points from your more techie giftees: this book also provides tips and insights into the equipment used to create these top-notch sounds.
