Good to see that Fabers have binned that pastel hued dust jacket in favour of something a little more in tune with the subject of the book.
The book is excellent up until Eno starts working with U2, whereupon it speeds up, and we race through Eno's career to the present day. The book doesn't go into much detail about Eno's projects in this period; it reads like "Eno did x, then he did y, and then spent some time doing z". As other reviewers here have noted, this may be because the author doesn't think Eno's later work is worthy of the same attention as his earlier output.
I'd have liked a bit more coverage of Eno's work in the visual arts. This is dealt with in the book, but only superficially.
To end on a positive note, I'd add that while I've followed the Enomeister's activities fairly closely over the past 30 odd years, there were plenty of things about the great man that I learnt in this book.
