There really isn't much to read in this book. There's a page or two of anecdotes and fond memories from each member of the band and a couple of others as they recall what their lives were like when some of these photos were taken.

Much as i love this band was really looking forward to it, this book is somewhat of a disappointment. It has loads of awesome pictures but, i would have liked to have read more about the band itself other than reading "I have enjoyed playing with the band over the years" from each member. So after a while it gets a little dull, especially as none that i can remember were outrageously funny. Still, i really enjoyed it!
