Much as I love Husker Du and Bob's later work, this book is a letdown. Bob provides a little insight into where some of his songs are coming from, and a tiny bit about the recording process, but I don't feel like I learned anything (the chapter on Husker Du in Azerrad's book gives a better sense of the band and its music). The prose is bland, and none of the descriptions ever come to life. It's no surprise that Bob is uncharitable towards his collaborators in Husker Du, but while I understand that they can't stand each other, he could have at least given some space to the joy he must have found in the music. In contrast, the relentless self-congratulation about his own talent makes his other judgments suspect. For Mould fans only.
