It's a good read and I was left wanting more - so was it too short or too well written?
The general story and overall impression of the man come across well. Maybe some of the anecdotes are familiar to we anoraks and long-term fans, but for a larger audience that's not a problem. However, I would have appreciated more detail. What A levels? Where was his first job? Why no Wilko songs on the final live album? We read a lot about his culinary activities, less about other parts of his life. Perhaps more input from Chris Fenwick - childhood friend and manager - and less from Wilko.
I agree with another reviewer that the photographs are poor quality. Those that I can see. But as most of them don't even appear in my kindle edition (just the captions!) perhaps I shouldn't comment. Note: don't buy the kindle edition! But for a good introduction to a great character and a damn good read, do read the book. There's not enough of it, but maybe that's a compliment!
