The book, So You Want to Stop Violence? has received a variety of reviews, media coverage and presentations. Irby has asked the community, do you really want to stop the violence? His hope and intent is that the book of poems and short stories will offer readers awareness about the subject, opportunity to choose, and a prospective to choose wellness.
