Great in places, but like a lot of Williams' work, he is in need of an editor. However the interviews with David Anderle are essential for all Beach Boys obssesives. That and what life was like at the court of Beach Boy Brian in 66/67 - the tale of Chritsmas Eve. A must for fanatics. Others best avoid.
