Format: Paperback
I have to disagree with the review already published. This is a fascinating book, full of amusing anecdotes, rock and roll stories, and some very eccentric characters. "Educating Pete" is a thrilling read and is a must for any aging rocker. I myself am a premature aging rocker, aging only 15. However, the aspects of rock covered here provide a very entertaining read. From the folk antics of Circulus, to the search for Syd Barrett, this book is a thoroughly entertaining read. Recommended to any aging rocker, premature aging rocker, or just any rocker.

Although I never have been (nor ever will be) a teenage boy, I loved this book. Cox's tale can make you laugh out loud as he tries to impart wisdom to a surly, mono-syllabic teenager, while evoking memories of what it was like when every aspect of your life was influenced by what bands you listened to.

It doesn't matter what your musical tastes are, this book contains many Universal Truths:

1. If you don't follow the rules of second hand record shop etiquette, you will be ostracized as quickly as an Amish Elder with a nipple ring

2. Anyone who tells you they had a wild and glamourous time hanging out with rock stars at an after show party is probably lying

3. If you busk in tights, you'd better be carrying a broad sword

4. Unless you're a masochist, have the patience of a saint or a complete thug, managing a band is not a good idea

5. You may go in search Syd, but you never really want to find him

6. At some point while looking back on the musical passions of your younger self, you will definitely have a "what was I thinking?" moment

just to name a few.

The author is hugely knowledgeable and passionate about Britain's musical history and genuinely cares about his young student, which makes this a charming and thoroughly enjoyable book.

Read it yourself - you might learn something.

In a nutshell, this book was fantastic and I felt i could really relate to many of the scenarios and features in this book. I read it in 5 days..really did want to read it all the time!

I like to think that perhaps it came from a similar school to High Fidelity and if you liked that, you will love this!
