The contents of this book are incredible. The photos draw you in, and the information it contains is wonderful.
This is probably the best of the scrapbook series books that has been released.

I thought this book was great. I have read most of the books on Jim multiple times. This book had lots of information that I had never read about before. The author is a curator at the rock and roll hall of fame so he had access to infomation that Jim's parents have donated to the museum. There are actual replications of some of Jim's artwork, poems & lyrics in this book. There is also a copy of the rolling stone interview from back in the day that I would never have gotten to read otherwise ...more

I bought this scrapbook when it was initially released. I was on a major 'Doors' kick at the time and needed to explore everything about the band. I recently pulled the book out and went over it again. This informative book explores Jim's early life until his death--copies of poems, drawings, letters, band programs--all compiled into a lovely designed book. I especially love the touching letters that Jim wrote during childhood. It is, above all, a truly fascinating scrapbook that every Jim Morri ...more

A quick read with fascinating souvenirs from Jim's life. This 'scrapbook' was beautifully constructed, with many never-before-seen photographs and clear details to spell out the creation of Jim Morrison and subsequently, the success of the Doors. I'd recommend this to every Doors fan and especially every Jim Morrison fan.

Great piece of Doors memorabilia to have in my collection, as well as anyone who is a fan of Doors merchandise. It was a nice change to read a few things I didn't already know about, or may have forgotten.

I recommend this to every single Jim Morrison’s fan, this isn’t just a biography and not as good (or should I say complete) as “No one here gets out alive” by Jerry Hopkins.

It has a cd with spoken words, birth certificate, obituary, copies of handwriting poetry etc.

I think its well done due to the various perspectives of the major roles in his life: the poet, the band member, the lover (…) and it was done with all the help of everbody surrounding him, friends, family, known celebrities that are

This is a terrific, albeit brief, chronicle of the life and times of Jim Morrison. As one would expect, it includes great photos and stories from friends and fellow Doors band mates. The highlight, however, is the collection of ephemera tucked into neat little pockets throughout the book. A ticket to a show, a report card, drawings, his last will and testament, songs, notes, and poems in Jim's handwriting. Very intimate and deeply touching.
Un libro da veri collezionisti, particolare non tanto per il testo ma per le fedelissime riproduzioni di lettere, disegni, cartoline e documenti vari: sembra proprio di avere tra le mani gli originali! In allegato anche un cd con una poesia letta da Jim ("Kingdoms of our own"), un racconto ("Dead Indian-Coyote") ed estratti dell'intervista concessa da Jim a Salli Stevenson nel 1970, il tutto tradotto in un libriccino inserito in una tasca interna del libro stesso.

For any fan of Jim Morrison, this scrapbook is a must have. It is a collection of copies of his original art work, poems, report cards and letters. Included is a brief biography of his life and some amazing pictures.

Yeah so this is a nice addition to any Doors fan library. I don't think anyone will be surprised by what is included as pull outs but its a very nice coffee table type book with enough notes, lyric reproductions, etc to ke you interested.
