Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great music read! This is a great read for any music fan. It's done in ten acts (instead of chapters), with themes for each act, and feature clips of interviews from Neil Strauss' career over the years with everyone from Marilyn Manson, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears to musicians and music business related folks from all backgrounds. Not every interview is with a celebrity, but all are intriguing. He asks fantastic questions, and keeps good conversation with who he is talking with. The last act, and story of interviews is what made me adore this book. I loved it up until then, but the story was so beautiful and devastating to read.
