Review: The Rough Guide to Pink Floyd

User Review  - Ryan Splenda - Goodreads

A nice overview of Pink Floyd. It gives a lot of inside information to the rise and fall of the mysterious band. It also provides a lot of additional places to find out more information about them. Therefore, it serves as a great start-up to any Floyd fan, or in my case, fanatic. Read full review
