I am not sure if this book will appeal to non-musicians, but every musician I have encountered found it hilarious. I first read the online diaries which sadly stopped short halfway. As soon as I saw recently (a year later)that it was on Amazon, I bought it and started from the front again and finished it within 2 days. You have to love the characters, and Mixerman's bitchy deprecating commentary is part of this book's appeal. There has been some speculation as to mixerman's identity, the band's identity and how much of this book is real. Forget all that and just laugh out loud, that events like in this book really do happen.

I didn't know what to expect when I read about this "dramatisation". When it first started and the narrator had classical music in the background plus the clattering sound of his keyboard as he typed the words, I felt real dread. It sounded like it was going to be an amateur, hackish radio production.

But that quickly fell away and I started to marvel at how great this audio production was. It's full of fantastically funny bits of music, "motifs" introducing each character, great voices and acting.

But, oh yeah, the story! That's truly wonderful too. It's the tale of a group of spoiled young musicians who have been given several million dollars and told to make a record - and two years later, they're only just getting started. Mixerman is the recording engineer, the guy who's responsible for capturing the sound that the band performs and the producer shapes. Mixerman describes the stupidity, the selfishness, the egos - he paints an amazing picture. It doesn't matter if you know a lot or a little about music making, this is utterly absorbing. Mixerman narrates the story himself, and it's a joy to listen to.

On top of that, he doesn't try to make out that he's the world's greatest guy. He's full of his own hangups which he doesn't try to hide. A flawed but excellent audio engineer, permanently shaking his head as he describes the appalling idiocy all around him.It's a really, really great story.

The 'production' is like nothing I've ever heard in an audiobook. Clearly Mixerman loved working with his friends on this production.

Brave man to print a diary of a recording session like this when his professional livelihood relies on. Not upsetting too many industry main movers.
You really need to have experience of musicians, bands, record industry types and the recording process to get the most from this, but even if you don't it will give some idea of the farcical nature of so much that goes on. The engineer come mixer is the most under appreciated person in the music business and this book certainly proves that - he is actually the key person, the calm at the centre of the storm.

I bought this after reading the online preview, then thinking I could live with not finishing the book, I'm a busy man after all, I can't sit around reading books! But no, after a few days, I was brought to a crushing defeat and had to buy it to see how the adventure comes to an end. You don't have to be a sound engineer to enjoy it (although if you are, you will recognise many of the trials and tribulations encountered in the job) it's a great story written in superb comedic style. You might just learn something too. Hmm, how much are lava lamps on amazon?

A great semi-fictional read. However, the author doesn't much reflect on his own mistakes and lack of boundaries, until right at the very end. It's something to not forget about while reading it. But it's still a work of genius.
