Product description

Review

"The best kind of journalism, even-tempered and provocative, factual and soulful." --"Christian Science Monitor"

"Kot understands that it's always entertaining to detail the thrash and roar of a carnivorous dinosaur in its death throes, as small and clever mammals--in this case, music lovers--win the day." --"The New York Times Book Review"

"A well-researched and highly opinionated history. . . . This book makes for provocative reading, but Kot is above all a music lover and that comes across nomatter which side of the issue you're on."

"[Ripped] is the best kind of journalism, even-tempered and provocative, factual and soulful."

"Greg Kot tell us what happened . . . in his well-reported book about music in the Internet Age. . . . Kot understands that it's always entertaining to detail the thrash and roar of a carnivorous dinosaur in its death throes, as small and clever mammals--in this case, music lovers--win the day."

"Thought-provoking . . . enlightening . . . [a] substantive examination of the chaotic music world."

"If you're looking for a big-picture guide to music, and how you interact with it, right-this second, "Ripped "is a good way to go."

"Kot is a talented critic."

"Stands out for its sturdily constructed prose and command of up-to-date facts. . . . The book thankfully avoids the technology and industry gossip possibilities inherent in the subject and instead focuses on the sometimes unexpectedly wonderful mutations in the way that musicians and listeners think about popular music."

"Clear, concise and entertaining account of the tectonic shift in the recording industry over the past decade . . . Indispensable for anyone who wants to understand popular music in the 21st century."

"A perceptive, unblinking, and up-to-the-minute take on the seismic transformations of the recording industry in the digital age. . . Kot's breezy, entertaining, journalistic style and sympathetic tone consistently draw in the reader. Essential for all those interested in the intersection of music and technology."

"Mr. Kot, who writes in an engaging but highly anecdotal style, does a nimble job of showing how the Internet has lifted the careers of particular musicians."--Michiko Kakutani "The New York Times "
