Worth buying only for the photographs!
on 14 March 2010
Appallingly badly-written (easily one of the worst books I've ever had the misfortune to read), redeeming itself and its purchase price only with the generous number of photographs, many of which I'd never seen before. I found myself skimming the text itself, which is not written in a scholarly way, elides way too much, and offers very little in the way of either facts, insights, or analyses.
