A great book, I'm a big fan of the majority of Warp's output and this has given me plenty more ideas of what to hunt out and listen to. Being written in 2005, this lacks the more recent releases from the label, but there's still plenty of history worth reading about. The artwork and the design layout really add to the appeal too.
I have early nineties nostalgia and this book is filling a void within my scope of vision. I heard Squarepusher on NPR in 1995/6. It made my brain explode. I never got into jungle/drum'n'bass, but some of that IDM stuff is OK. I like Beans and Flying Lotus A LOT.

Not bad, but not exactly great either. Very surface, never manages to get to the heart of what makes Warp, Warp. Massively out of date too since it only goes up to 2005.

Gorgeous book. As a Sheffiled native that grew up on Aphex Twin etc, the book also has a deeper connection to me. Worth it just to see the brilliant label artwork too.
this book was good and fast. not too exhaustive, just informative enough. good to hold, smelled ok, made me want to be a raver in the early 90s like nothing else.
