Eddie Trunk is living the dream. He's your ordinary average dude obsessed with all things hard rock and heavy metal, but he gets to interview and hang with his idols 24/7. What is so great about this book is that Eddie writes like a fan - his unadulterated love for the music and genuine honesty permeates the pages. He has interesting stories that any fan of the genre should love, and exposes some trivia even I didn't know. He tells his stories with the bands, along with the band's story, in a fun to read, conversational style. He writes as if you are sitting there having a beer with him and the music is playing in the background. His book covers the standards - such as the big four of thrash - along with some unexpected choices such as Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, and Poison. A good primer for those new to hard rock and metal, but with plenty of fodder for the initiated too.
