In the film "Marley," Bob's wife Rita states that Marley died from melanoma because of his white blood

Nothing "untold" in this book, most of the book is based on the 36 previously published sources the author borrowed from. The book seemed more about the political climate through the world and various other artists during the time. If someone crossed paths with Bob even for minute, your name is in this book. Played at the same recording studio, didn't have to be with Bob, yep your in here too. I skipped several pages and never missed a thing. When I read a book about someone I would like it to at least contain more detail on that person. Almost skipped over Bob's death and the last couple years leading up to it.
The only reason I finished the book was that I committed to it. If you want to read about Bob Marley's life, skip this book. There are a lot better ones out there.
