'Superbly put together with a great mix of photos, flyers and detailed text, this book provides a comprehensive and entertaining read of this iconic band.'(Rob McKenzie Fireworks Magazine)
From the Back Cover
Nirvana unintentionally tore the music world asunder in 1991 with "Smells Like Teen Spirit." At the time, MTV and the pop charts were dominated by vapid hair metal acts and Michael Jackson. Nirvana represented a much-needed return to punk-inspired rock. Two and half years after the release of "Teen Spirit," leader Kurt Cobain, age 27, killed himself and the ride was over. But for fans, the music--and the spirit--live on. Here is the first ever complete illustrated history of the band. Performance and off-stage photography, handbills, singles, tickets, gig posters, and other memorabilia complement a narrative detailing the band's tumultuous history, as well as album reviews, a gear breakdown, and more. The text is written by noted writers Charles R. Cross, Gillian G. Gaar, Bob Gendron, Todd Martens, Mark Yarm, Jim DeRogatis, Alan di Perna, Greg Kot, and Andrew Earles with stellar photography by Charles Peterson, Kevin Estrada, Jay Blakesberg, Ed Sirrs, Ian Tilton, and Steve Double.See all Product Description

I was very excited to get it but was not happy with the book.
It's basically Kurt Cobain book with very little about Kris or Dave
and also very little on the guys who were in Nirvana before they hit it big.
The book had good reviews but i could not get into it.
The book was mostly about what Kurt liked and Kurt's top 50 albums
and a bio on Kurt.
I love Nirvana and i have a great book on Kurt Cobain but i want a book about the whole band.
