Can't say I enjoyed the book itself, its quite long and slow. The author spends a lot of time delving into the origins of the bands musical influences. But the delivery was quick and the condition for being used is very good.

HASH(0x95216330) out of 5 stars Enjoyable but with some issues. 17 July 2014
By Peter Teague - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I'm a huge no doubt fan and have been for many years and this was the first book I've read on them

It had some info I didn't know from quotes/interviews the band has done over the years and compiled it nicely into a timeline.
the problem is a lot of filler and repeated content. For instance the first chapter is the history of ska music and there's a lot of other passages giving too much detail to characters that weren't very relevant to no doubts history. If you combine this with the fact that a lot of quotes are brought up several time you can see that the writer probably had little exclusive sources and had to stretch it out.

I don't regret the purchase and would recommend it any hardcore No Doubt fans but as someone who has read a lot of books on rock and roll bands this isn't one of better ones.
