Talking Heads are my favorite band, otherwise I doubt I wold ever feel compelled to read a rock band biography. The endorsement from Jonathan Lethem helps, though.
***
In the end, about the same as any other band biography. The initial chapters, describing the strange formation and early years of the band, were interesting, but once the band began recording albums the narrative of their story grew a little stale. I suppose at that point I wanted to start listening rather than reading. And Bowman's self-satisfied prose got a wee bit annoying, I might add.
