To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Disappointed in this book!! Really not too interesting. It is put together well, and she writes well. Each chapter is about a different rock star mum's story. I just thought it would be more to do with the rock stars. It's basically about the mums. Some are more interesting than others as it gives background to their story. I suppose it depends on whether or not you're interested in those singers. For me, I found about 4 stories worth reading. The others tend to be more 80s fame so lots of younger readers won't have a clue or won't care. Quite liked the vignette where she wrote about dave grohl. I found her quite boastful but that is typical of Americans.
I suppose I was hoping for more about Dave & the other Foo's despite knowing it was a collection of 'interviews' with other rock Mothers! I didn't read half of the interviews because I didn't know who they were and it cost me quite a bit of money as I had to get it shipped from the US!! I wouldn't recommend this unless you want to know more about all the other "well known" rock stars!!!
Die Frau ist Lehrerin - und das merkt man beim Lesen. In einer Mischung aus Plauderton und Klatsch arbeitet sie sich durch verschiedene Biographien...Nach Nr. 3 war ich so gelangweilt, dass ich nicht mehr weiterlas.
I liked the concept but the content is largely lacked in depth and lacked interesting content. There also weren’t enough interesting photos to recommend it as a coffee table book either. It certainly wasn’t worth $13.99! I hope the money goes to charity. Maybe a must for Foo fans but over rated in my opinion.
While I found this book interesting, I couldn't help but notice that most of these rock stars became famous relatively early in their careers. Parent support is definitely important. The book highlighted that and I totally agree as the mother of a drummer. But what I don't think was highlighted enough was the pain a parent goes through when their children go on the road. When you wait at night for that phonecall to let you know they are ok, or the anguish you feel when the phone rings at 2am and they are stuck in the middle of an ice storm in a 14 year old van with no heat. How much you pray to God that they come home safe. And when they come home from a disappointing tour and you try to tell them that it takes years to become an overnight success. My son's first tour was a nightmare. The trailer's running lights kept failing. They had to change fuses every 30 miles or so. They had no heat. They broke down more than once and had to lie to AAA to come get them because AAA doesn't service trailors. This was just one in a number of events that occurred during their early days. I was looking to identify a little more with that.
