A really good book of the history of Fleetwood Mac, one of the most successful bands of the last 40 years. Brunning, a UK teacher, musician, club owner and writer, provides a unique insider's perspective on the band for whom in its very early incarnation he was bassist. A relatively quick and enjoyable, interesting read.

The question must be asked: if Fleetwood Mac's career has been so long, why is this book so short? Coming in at just over 200 pages, it barely hints at much of the events in the heady, rollercoaster life of the band. I've learned more watching TV documentaries than reading this book. You would think that the author, as one of the original members from its early days in the 1960s, would provide a lot more insider knowledge, particularly as he still maintains friendships with his former bandmates ...more

A breezy book that glazed over the decades long career of Fleetwood Mac. Nearly half of it is spent on the Peter Green era (admittedly not my area of interest in the band) and the other part is a quick brush over that offers a rather impersonal look at the tumultuous Rumours - Era lineup. I would have liked some more detail into the making of the albums and song analysis, as I find the in - depth information much more interesting.

This book was only okay..mostly a synopsis of the surface. Not a lot of juice. Entertaining enough, but that's about it.
