A good book, possibly because it's the only book of its kind. No other author has yet elected to devote an entire book to this unique artist. The upside of this book is that if you are a Nesmith fan you'll get to read all about Nez's decades-long, multifaceted career. On the downside, it frequently comes across as if the author doesn't even like Nesmith, and goes out of her way to portray his as an egomanical jerk. If you are going to write a book about an artist with a small but devoted following, it might be in your best interest to speak of your subject positively, otherwise you are essentially alienating the very readers to whom you wish to sell your book. But if you like Nez, read it anyway. You're not going to find a better book about him.
