Top customer reviews
There is a very brief (25 page) sum-up of the band at the beginning, and from then on it's reviews and articles chronologically. The articles show the level of acceptance and understanding the band received (more than most people would have you believe) and the difficulty they encountered outliving the Warhol association.
The style and ability to hold interest can't be critised, for that would mean critising each individual journalist within the book.
