Fascinating history of the Ramones, told from Mickey Leigh's (Joey's younger brother) perspective. But wow, this was a slow, long read. It was mostly enjoyable but about 100 pages could have been knocked out, easily. Somewhere between the first quarter and the last, there was a lot of "lather, rinse, repeat": Joey and Mickey are fighting, no one in the band is talking to each other, Mickey is broke, Mickey is angry, Joey is angry.... A little of that goes a long way.

Hardcore Ramones fans will enjoy this one; others will wish it moved a little faster. But I confess, I cried at the end.
