Let Love Rule

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Lenny Kravitz, David Ritz

Narrated By: Lenny Kravitz

Date: October 2020

Duration: 6 hours 40 minutes


'This captivating audiobook purports to be about the musical development of the multitalented Lenny Kravitz... As he draws listeners into his world, however, listeners begin to see that he's talking about something broader than music: This deeply thoughtful man is talking about how his passion for learning and expressing himself was shaped.' -- AudioFile Magazine

“I see my story as a suite of songs that have a magical connection. I never understood that connection until I sat down to write. It was then that the magic started to flow.”

Let Love Rule is a work of deep reflection. Lenny Kravitz looks back at his life with candor, self-scrutiny, and humor.

“My life is all about opposites,” he writes. “Black and white. Jewish and Christian. The Jackson 5 and Led Zeppelin. I accepted my Gemini soul. I owned it. I adored it. Yins and yangs mingled in various parts of my heart and mind, giving me balance and fueling my curiosity and comfort.”

Let Love Rule covers a vast canvas stretching from Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant, Los Angeles’s Baldwin Hills, Beverly Hills, and finally to France, England and Germany.

It’s the story of a wildly creative kid who, despite tough struggles at school and extreme tension at home, finds salvation in music.

We see him grow as a musician and ultimately a master songwriter, producer, and performer. We also see Lenny’s spiritual growth—and the powerful way in which spirit informs his music.

The cast of characters surrounding Lenny is extraordinary: his father, Sy, a high-powered news executive; his mother, Roxie Roker, a television star; and Lisa Bonet, the young actress who becomes his muse.

The central character, of course, is Lenny, who, despite his great aspirational energy, turns down record deal after record deal until he finds his true voice.

The creation of that voice, the same voice that is able to declare “Let Love Rule” to an international audience, is the very heart of this story.

“Whether recording, performing, or writing a book,” says Lenny, “my art is about listening to the inspiration inside and then sharing it with people. Art must bring the world closer together.”

A Macmillan Audio production from Henry Holt and Company

    This book is amazing. I love the story he told. It’s not super deep and insightful but just a super well written story to go back in time and musical history to. I found out so many interesting things about Lenny...he ends it with a To Be Continued tho which kind of sucks but is smart as if he is writing another book it will be something I’ll 100% need to listen to. So long as he is the narrator again as that was a MUST!!

    I admire him even more after reading this, finding your destiny’s is so important. The way he talked bout Lisa was beautiful. Definitely recommend.

  • Courtney T.

    Like the man, this was an amazing book. I saw Behind the Music as a teen and fell in love with Lenny Kravitz. This was a thoughtful and well composed memoir. I look forward to part 2.
