Format: Paperback
Unlike other Nirvana books on the market, The Nirvana Companion is a collection of media interviews and articles caputuring the band at that time. From the early days of excitement and eargerness to the final days when the band were in full public demand.
All in all, one of the best Nirvana books alongside the excellent "Come As You" title. Also check out the forthcoming Live Through This book written by Everett True detailing the whole 90s alternative scene.

Format: Paperback
Nirvana is the most inspirational band ever, and it's awesome to read about their inspirations. You also get to read about the making, members, and style of Nirvana. There is one section that starts on page 103 that is very complicated, but if you can understand it, it just shows the awkwardness of Nirvana. Any Nirvana fans out there, this is the book for you. Also, it is very detailed in every word and story.

There are a lot of crappy books out there about Nirvana, but this isn't one of them. Contains some of the most revelent articles and nirvana related material. Very interesting and a must have if you are a Nirana nut like me. :)

Surprisingly good 27 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Yeah, yeah, it's really lame to buy a book about them and all, but this isn't just another stupid ripoff fan book- this is really good stuff. It's funny. It's sad. It gives Courtney a chance to look less evil- I changed my mind about her because of this book. And it's not just about Kurt like most Nirvana books are- there's a good amount of stuff on Krist and the various drummers as well. Serious Nirvana fans really need to read this.

Missing Kurt 6 Oct 2002
By Flounder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book on Nirvana, and it is too sad that it is out-of-print. It contains important interviews and write-ups from several pop culture mags of that era on the band--on performances--on their overall views...
Does this signal that Kurt was right: Grunge is dead?
Well, perhaps dead but not yet interred into the earth.
