5.0 out of 5 stars Just the Best! 3 Dec 2003
By Anthony M. Zipple - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It is really a wonderful book. Clever, well written, and full of trivia and history organized chronologically. The forward by Robert Hunter is a special treat. The photos are varied and delightful, evoking images of a very special time and place. True, it is a little light on some of the less attractive parts of the history, but that seems OK in a book like this. And the photos are generally too small to do them justice, but they make up for the size in quantity. What is there is choice and makes for hours of fascinating reading. Just the thing to be enjoyed on a cold winter's evening with Europe 72 on the stereo and a hot drink in your hand. On balance, it is one of the few "must have" books for a Deadhead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye candy for a long, strange trip 27 Mar 2004
By Kirk McElhearn - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What can you say about an illustrated book about the Dead? It's fun, disjointed, fragmentary, but it fits perfectly with the Dead and their style of living and music-making. In the usual Dorling Kindersly style, this book contains lots of sidebars with illustrations all over the place. There's no narrative, other than time itself. The timeline, that is the thread through this book, moves from the earliest days to Jerry's death and beyond, covering the albums, important concerts, drug busts and all the other highlights of the Dead's career. If you are, or ever have been, a Deadhead, you'll want this book to leaf through while listening to live Dead shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coffee Table Dead 10 Dec 2007
By Philip S. Wolf - Published on
This is a Large, Thick and Heavy Book.
Based on a Timeline that begins in 1940 and ends in 2003, this is Quite a Feast for the eyes. If you are New to the Music of The Grateful Dead and have never seen one of the other Hundreds of Books about The Band, this will fill you in on THOUSANDS of Details. If this Book was used as a Guide to bring you into the World that is The Grateful Dead, well... just be prepared to be Busy for a While.

For the Seasoned Head, lot's of this Information has been Covered elsewhere in the Past. But at the Same Time, here is just about everything there is all in One Place. The Visuals herein are Quite a Trip for your Head, and they are as much the Stars of this Massive Volume as the Twenty Tons of Dead Story contained within 480 Pages.

To sum it up...When they begin teaching: "Grateful Dead 101" at UC Berkeley, this will be the Textbook!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent in content, context, design, and depth - WOW! 12 Nov 2003
By Rosie McGee, Photographer - Published on
This huge (480 pgs.) and interesting compendium of photos, stories, mini-bio's, art, comments, and multi-decade chronology is much more than another Deadhead encyclopedia of set lists and arcane trivia. By setting the Grateful Dead's story in the context of a much larger historical timeline, it pulls it all together - both for those of us who were/are there, and also for those who always wondered what the fuss was all about. It gives credence to what we've known all along .... that all of us who've consciously participated in this wonderful story are not just a band-loving fringe of weirdo's living on the edge of society. It's a beautifully-conceived book, lovingly executed with taste; and as a photographer who contributed to this book, I particularly appreciate the quality of the design and printing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Gift!! 28 Jan 2004
By Teresa Peters - Published on
this is easily one of the most beautiful books I've ever seen. I gave two as Christmas gifts and just came back to get one for myself.
I gave one to a serious Dead fan and one to a lifelong music lover and both were totally blown away.
