Got to really dispute the trolls who are dissing this book. They have an agenda, that I can't work out as this is one of the best rock and roll books ever written. Extensively researched and beautifully written this is the book for real rock fans who are looking for intelligent writing and discourse. Finks extensive search for the real people who knew and worked with Bon is excemplary. Look for some of the reviews from rock people who are in the business- I'm absolutely sure they will give it 5 stars. Its a serious book for people who a genuinely interested in the business of Rock n Roll. And its a great read
