really liked it
Read in December, 2010

Very good, partly because it was written competently and literately, but largely because so much of what has been written about Mr. Barrett has been so full of urban legend and freakshow fascination that the person behind the stories is entirely eclipsed - as if on the dark side of the moon. This book provides much more verifiable detail, and debunks a goodly portion of the untruthful "conventional wisdom" with a measure of compassion. A bit hard to find in the States, but worth the effort for this American fan of the earliest Pink Floyd.
