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.
This is one of the most disappointing books I have ever read! Although the format is somewhat unusual - a series of comments and recollections from those who were there during the rise of GNR, I didn't find any 'meat' to the history. It was a very dull read with virtually nothing more than superficial attention to virtually all events outside the studios. For example, one of the contributors says that if one member of GNR got into a bar-room brawl, every member became involved. There was not a single description of such an event.
Further to my comment about the unusual format, each chapter began with an audio clip (I suspect it would have been relevant to the content of that chapter) but couldn't be accessed on my Kindle.
Lacking more than two thumbs to turn downward, I can't give it the rating I think it deserves.
Oh my God, the CONSTANT misspellings and grammatical errors! It's like it was written by a 3rd grader and not even a smart one. Even the author's name is misspelled in the foreword in big, bold letters! The first time I saw "quiet" misspelled "quite", I chalked it up to a typo. After seeing it that way throughout the whole book, I realized that is how someone actually thinks it's spelled. After I saw "their" spelled "the-ir", I decided that no one even read this book over before throwing it on the market. Don't use the excuse "Hey, it's rock-n-roll". Rock-n-roll doesn't have to be illiterate. Now for the book itself. It is truly the most boring thing I have ever read. I can't believe I paid $20 for page after page of such exciting anecdotes as set lists and on-stage banter of Axl asking for more monitor and Slash asking for someone to buy him a beer. This is truly just a picture book.
