A great resource for Deadheads. Big on nostalgia, great anecdotes, postures, photos, tickets, writings ... Ben Fong Torres states that he is not much of a fan. You may take this to mean he is not as obsesssed as some of the Dead's legendary followers who have attended shows in the hundreds. Yet he compiles a tribute that could only be assembled by someone who loves, respects and worships this incredible band. One of those books you pickup and read straight through without stopping.

I almost didn't buy this, as I didn't think there was anything new in it, but I found it at a discount, so I pulled the trigger. I was wrong! Most of the info was not new, except for a few minor nuggets, but there are photos and artifacts here I had never seen before. If you get a chance, read it!

Good short version of the Grateful Dead history. Fong-Torres is a good writer and a pleasure to read. What really made the book exceptional was the reproduced artwork: Posters, fliers, album art ect...
