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.
