Here are some excerpts:
Greene: Your book, "Heart Full of Soul," is coming out July 10.
Hicks: Yes, July 10.
Greene: Can you tell me a little bit about the experience of creating the book?
Hicks: It was great. I co-wrote it with David Wild, who was a Rolling Stone writer for a while. He really helped me get the thoughts across that I wanted to, about, you know, finding your own voice and staying true to who you are, and the odds, and beating the odds and having an opportunity to beat the odds.
Greene: Do you have any sort of sneak peek, a little tidbit from the book that you can share with us?
