I mostly agree with above reviewer. I am sure there are inaccuracies, but in all fairness there was a lot of depth. Plus direct quotes and input from the the band and co-writers. I personally wasn't interested in all the detail of what mics, reverbs, and nitty gritty details about the recording. However I read through as much as I could, and did gain some info I would have never know. Overall good read for the die hard fan.
