Helium is the debut poetry collection by internet phenom Rudy Francisco, whose work has defined poetry for a generation of new readers. Rudy's poems and quotes have been viewed and shared millions of times as he has traveled the country and the world performing for sell-out crowds. Helium is filled with work that is simultaneously personal and political, blending love poems, self-reflection, and biting cultural critique on class, race and gender into an unforgettable whole. Ultimately, Rudy's work rises above the chaos to offer a fresh and positive perspective of shared humanity and beauty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from leaves me speechless This book is a poetry book so it doesnt really have a story to it just a compliation of poems by the author Rudy Francisco. I was thrilled because I've read some of his work before ad forgot about him. He is fantastic and this book did not disappoint. His metaphors are just beautiful and make you feel something inside that not a lot of poetry can do I find. Most of his poems are short and to the point so they don't lose you along the way. If your a poetry fan this book is one that you must read. I've read a few and none of them are better than this one. This is one of those books that you will read once and put down, then the next few days will read again because it just calls to you. The best part was I really felt like I was part of his world reading all of the emotions that he's put into his work. I feel that no matter how many time I read this book it will always beg to be read again. Great job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought as a gift, and planning to buy one for myself! I bought this as a gift after seeing a video of the author performing spoken word. As I flipped through before wrapping, I was taken by many of the poems. So eloquent yet raw, and important. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It While I didn't have a chance to purchase it, I did get a chance to read it from cover to cover. Amazing and unique artistry, I didn't even know Rudy was working on a book. The way he uses his words to create images is captivating and inspiring. A great great read
