All in all, KISS & Sell is a good book. My only complaint, however, is the seemingly endless chapters that chronicle the non-KISS experiences that Lendt faced. Why does he drone on about the Isley Brothers? And who really cares about Gene's dalliances with Cher and Diana Ross enough to warrant nearly 30 pages of text?! Sure its part of "KISStory" but Lendt's editor should have recognized that such material could have been greatly trimmed for content. There are many interesting stories that Lendt brings to light such as Gene's mogulling, Peter's manic behavior, Ace's extravagant recording studio, and Paul's perseverance in keeping the band together. He also reveals the gross spending habits of the band members. Who knew that such ignorance to money matters occurred within the band? Lendt's take on the financial situation of the band is a new one and should not be ignored by any true KISS fan; however, Lendt's obvious reliance on a Roget's thesaurus may distract some readers from enjoying an interesting read--I am a university graduate with an English degree and I frequently had no idea what Lendt was saying because of the big words he uses. Also, one has to question the credibility of some of Lendt's stories. His memory of minute details, for example, how many cigars Howard Marks held in his cigar case at a 1979 business meeting, is endless--and apparently flawless. Perhaps he added some of these details for dramatic effect but overall it takes away the reader's faith in Lendt's stories. If Lendt had not paid as much attention to this endless minutiae, his position could certainly hold greater credibility.
