An excellent account not only of the definitive singles collection of the Who but also of everything that surrounded the making of that music and the making of the Who. John Perry writes really well. Filled with insights and humor to enthrall the modest fan and certainly enough meat to keep the hardcore one very contend. It's a wonderful book about music and Perry's musical insights are spot on.

Highly recommended for all WHO fans....

In a review of the Who singles which comprised the compilation Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy, author John Perry goes into great detail about not only the story behind the songs but the musical structure to it. Great additions are a copy of Pete Townshend's Rolling Stone review of this album (from 1971) and an extended US and UK discography. Great resource for all Who fans!
