This is a 336 page, superbly documented chronicle and includes many photographs that I had never seen before. Up to now, the greatest authority on The Byrds has been Johnny Rogan's 'Timeless Flight Revisited', which I've heard, is going to reappear at some point in a vastly expanded fourth edition. Of course, Rogan's book remains unmatched for analysis and insight. But for contemporary press reports, very many long lost interviews, posters, set lists, recording sessions and a wealth of information you didn't know before, Christopher Hjort's volume is the real deal. But beware - you'll find it dangerously engaging!

As a life long Byrds fan this detailed and well researched book was always going to be a winner for me but for any other Byrds fans yet to read it, get a copy! And for anyone wanting to get a full idea of what it was like in the sixties and early seventies to be in a famous rock band, it is of great value.
