This book is not for a casual Kinks fan or even a casual music fan. The authors go into such detail that I had to stop myself from flipping pages. The language is overtly British and verbose so it was dry at times. I love the Kinks music but their career deserves a better retrospective than this book.

Mostly interesting biography of the Kinks and of Ray and Dave Davies' solo careers. But it could have used some careful editing--it's not simply too long, it's also sometimes carelessly written.

I'm glad i'm not a Kink.
Biography of the brit-band the Kinks. You see their rise in the 60's and 70's and their brief sucess in the 80's. Its an interesting read about the rise of stardom. It flounders a bit at the end but that is to be expected and the group is semi-disbanded. But many great stories to follow even for those who arent a big fan.
