5.0 out of 5 stars Best Rush Book out there, 3 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a huge Rush fan, this was the biography I was waiting for (short of obvious autobiographies).

Enough said really.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY!!!!!!, 30 Sep 2012
Before you buy - which I recommend you don't. Please look at this website:

I have had my toothbrush for around a year and it has now stopped working. Please read the above website as not only is this extremely common, it appears that Braun and useless at helping/solving.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute garbage - a complete rip-off, 6 July 2011
I will never get back the hours and hours wasted trying to make a website using this site. Whatever you do, look elsewhere. There is no control over anything - want to add a logo in the corner, no chance. Want to change your text, no chance. Want to do anything other than exactly what they want you to do, no chance. Their live help isn't helpful - they keep telling you the same thing. Thankfully I bought this at Costco so I know I'll get my money back.

And the constant crashes... like using an old Amstrad software. Dispicable in this day and age.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry folks, this ain't good..., 18 Nov 2010
This review is from: Rush: Chemistry (Paperback)
I'm not sure what the stars are for from the other reviewers, but here is the truth from an author and a big Rush fan; this is not a good book:

IF you want a book that goes into great detail describing how Rush produced and engineered its albums and how they hired and fired the prodcuers and engineers of said albums, then this is the book for you. I, for one, couldn't care less about how the albums are produced - what about the writing of the music? The dynamic in the band? The inspiration, heartache, triumphs of each song? THAT is what fans care about, not whether Alex used more or less pedals, or which Moog or Keyboard Geddy was playing (or worse, the paragraphs given to Neil choosing a new drum kit..?). It is very clear that the author had no help, support, input or possibly clearance to write this book from Geddy, Alex or Neil. The snippets of dialogue quoted from the '3' are tiny little cut-outs from previous interviews and the reader has no idea in what context these comments were made. I understand a need for a Rush Biography and hope one day the guys authorise one, but this is a dull read with appallingly bad cliff hangers at the end of each chapter like 'Little did the band know what would happen next.' - and then nothing would happen next because the author hasn't got any inside scoop. This is a chronological journey through the production of each album - little time is spent over any song and there are awful sweeping generalisations throughout. Perhaps the tip of this iceberg of boredom are the authors own reviews of each album - he has nothing to say about each that is worthy of print - these rambles could have been condensed to 'This is a band at the [insert period in career - e.g. start/early/middle/late etc] of their writing career showing all of their skill and technical ability.'

It is not the worst book ever written, but as a Rush fan I am used to better. Let's hope that one day the real story is written.
