it was amazing

First, I should note that this is not a book to be read on the older Kindles - it is probably okay on an iPad or the newer Nook or Kindle Fire but the Power Point chapter is a bit clunky to get through on the b+w Kindle. This is important because it might be my favorite chapter in the whole book. I got my hands on a printed copy and it was much more enjoyable to read.

People seem to either REALLY get this book, or they don't. I think it helps if you came into this knowing the bands referenced and in some way having been in a similar scene - I hung out with people at one time who were very similar to the characters in this book so their stories resonated a bit more with more for that.
