A history of the band from its beginnings to its temporary reunion for Live 8, and the death of Syd Barrett. There is not much in terms of criticism or analysis of the music; most of the book is about the personality clashes within the band, as well as about the legal wranglings following the release of The Wall. Much of Blake’s information comes from his interviews with band members and with friends, family and business associates of the group. The book is somewhat more balanced than Dallas’s Bricks in the Wall, which whitewashed Roger Waters’s ego issues.
