This is how music writing should be. Maybe the worst part of being a music fan is having to slog through overlong, over-researched, over-ripe biographies with big dusty titles, especially during the inevitable opening 200 pages that start with the great-grandparents and drag you yawning all the way to the first album. (I once read a Beach Boys book that began with the pilgrims coming to America.) Load up your bonfires; Rough Guides are the way of the future.

Simple, straightforward and cleanly written. This is like a grouping of wikipedia entries all in one bound edition. Nothing relevatory, but fun bedtime reading about Dylan.
