For any fan of the Eagles or the Classic Rock artists of the area (Fleedwood Mac, etc.), an entertaining and in-depth chronicle of how the band came to be, their infamous falling out, and the sex, drugs and rock and roll in between.

Great book!Not sure about some of the honest,but I really enjoyed it!
I loved reading this book. Great oversight into the California music after the 1960s; the author's analysis of that era and the Eagles' part in it is fascinating. There is great detail on the Eagles' rise to the top, the power dynamics among the group members, and the flaws in their working relationships that tore the band apart over and over. You'll never view the Eagles the same again after reading this book, especially Henley, and to a lesser extent, Frey.

Dave Larson
Great book, I loved the details about the group, their origins, their musical roots, and how their timeless songs and albums came to be!
Paul Garns
Great book about a bunch of self-important, petulant little kids who made some of the best music in history.
