    im half way through this book and i am amazed by the levels of diversity with every paged turned a new dynamic is slammed. the words move in your head with a sense of rhythm that changes every time you read a piece. i would have finished by now but i want to savour it and revisit each piece.

    the ART and passion, coupled with the educative qualities of B.R.E.I.S, with the “mic check” feature, encouraging would be/could be and aspiring writers to think and have a go, makes this a must have for any rucksack, bedside, school, youth club or library!!

    I received my copy this morning!

    …Having worked with young people and youth in schools as a mentor for the past 11+ years i BELIEVE this is the kind of thing that should be in the English GCSE curriculum.

    Its witty, well written and most of all ENGAGING!

    Excellent book- interesting, practical and inventive. Particularly liked the inclusion of the lyrics to Strictly and Think Big, but the whole range of material is great- serious issues and sheer fun sit side by side because the tone of the book is so well judged. It’s accessible to all- the Mic Checks are especially good for motivating younger kids and stimulating discussion while some of the more metaphorical lyrics provide more advanced food for thought. Every house and school should have a copy!

    Brilliant Rapper’s Educate Intelligent Students fast became my 10 year old Son’s favourite read. So much so that it travelled wherever he went namely Brixton, North London, Italy and even as far as Switzerland.

    It’s encouraged him to write, and experiment with word play. As a parent i saw first hand how this book inspired a young person with events he could relate to and laugh about, rhymes that provoked discussion and raised questions and issues that were equally intriguing. It’s such a riveting read, that my Son has already asked when the next one is coming out.

    Hey Breis, gave my 13 year old son Lorenz the signed copy of your book I bought at Kats ting. He brings it to school everyday and said he’s read the whole book 5 times…

    He wants to be a writer and writes stories but you inspired him to write this poem. I said I’d send it to you.

    It came fast, strong, powerful
    The white light was beautiful,
    The divine power raining down upon me
    Mums lips trembling, cold tears rolling on to me
    The massive entity expanding
    The quantity and immensity of my energy
    I thought that I was all ready mentally
    What I’m meant to be eventually
    Poetry has been a dream
    The light gleams,
    I can smell the pollution,
    Sirens light blurred manic and confusion,
    A red, blue and green fusion,
    I didn’t know what to do,
    I could barely breathe
    I still have a lot to prove,
    Wet clothes were my pet peeve,
    Body is sore,
    All I know
    Is after the car hit me
    I know it don’t hurt no more.

    -by Lorenz.
