The cover of this book is misleading.,
This review is from: The Mammoth Book of the Rolling Stones: An anthology of the best writing about the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world (Mammoth Books) (Kindle Edition)
The book presents itself as a collection of writing by many different authors, but in fact a good 75% of the book is written by Sean Egan, and the remainder consists of interviews and articles by others. This should have been made clearer.
Having said that, it's a fairly enjoyable read. Egan's chronological history of the band is thorough and contains a few details that were new to me, and his opinions on each record are mildly diverting, even when questionable ('Tumbling Dice' a bad choice of single? Live albums always rubbish?).
Workmanlike, but not outstanding, the book is cheap enough to be worth a punt if you're a Stones fan.
