The story of Iron Maiden is not one that can be properly told by any one person, which is why, in this book, you'll find myriad voices from the band's past and present all doing their best to tell their sides of this complex and fascinating tale as honestly and as accurately as they can. Read the first page

Top Customer Reviews

Whilst this is a very interesting book, and I quite enjoyed reading it, in my opinion it is very poorly written, and I had expected better. The book reads like an extended magazine article for Kerrang! or Metal Hammer, with a poor use of language - the most readable parts are the direct quotations which make up the majority of the book. It is also a very biased book, with frankly annoying changes of opinion, with the last two chapters feeling very tacked-on and disjointed (for example, Mick Wall changes from being pro-Bruce to anti-Bruce to pro-Bruce again, depending on whether he's writing about the 80s, 90s or now). I would only recommend reading this if you are curious about Maiden's history, but I definitely wouldn't buy it.

HASH(0x915b1ccc) out of 5 stars Run to the Hills 13 Feb. 2011
By Spider Monkey - Published on
Run To The Hills is probably the best place to start if you want to learn more about the career of Iron Maiden. This looks at their formation, rise to fame, the various line-ups, albums, concerts, band disputes and other general information about this classic group. You also get a good selection of photographs. Mick Wall is a respected rock journalist and this book is no exception, great story, well told. Make sure you track down the latest edition of this book as i've seen at least three versions now and it'll be worth getting the most up-to-date one if you can. A great history of one of Britain's most influential metal groups. Well worth a read.

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.
HASH(0x93a5ca8c) out of 5 stars Great book on one of the greatest metal bands ever 19 Nov. 2014
By Tim S. Martin - Published on
Verified Purchase
Great book on one of the greatest metal bands ever. Mick Wall certainly does his homework, and pretty much the best author on rock and roll books. I haven't read one of his books that disappoints yet.
