Informative, warm, educational and made me cry a bit.

As a Salford lad who grew up around the house scene and Manchester's cultural and actual explosions I thought I knew quite a bit about Tony Wilson, turns out I didn't. This book is written in a warm yet often blunt way towards Wilson. It often reveals some tender moments and humanises him more than some of the other books. A pleasant surprise for me was seeing a former college of mine regularly quoted about his time working with Wilson at Granada.
I read this from cover to cover on a train trip to London and was left a little emotional about his passing and also frustrated that since Wilson Manchester has never really had anyone who was truly connected into the city's veins.
