The one effect the book has is that it makes you listen to the album with "new ears" especially wher little noticed things are pointed out. Overall it's an enjoyable insight to a rather geeat LP.
Quantick writes as he sounds on the 'I Love 198x' programmes. He is irreverant, slightly eccentric but entertaining in a sixth-form way. However his strong views (his love of 'Revolution 9' and sympathy for Yoko Ono's art, music and her influence of Lennon) are rarely troubled by any effort to explain of justify his views.
The book is also seemingly written for an American audience with many commonplace British expressions explained.
Overall, the book feels rushed and 'cut and pasted' together. It was clearly a labour of love, but is lightweight and can be read in around two hours.
