Customer Review

on 28 August 2007
This is a really unusual book, not what I was expecting at all. Nolan has done the research and the leg work, found out about Sumner's past (including the reason for all those name changes) tracked down school friends and former workmates from when Bernard was an animator, as well as former employees, Factory and Hacienda colleagues ... then he's handed it over to the New Order man to get his thoughts. And Sumner gives them big time. Everything from his mum's disability to his feelings about Peter Hook quitting (that's how up to date it is - how did they manage that??) It's all here. For a guy who's never opened up before, Sumner is funny and honest in his contributions. He's not perfect and doesn't pretend to be. The style is different - like two voices in your head, Sumner's and Nolan's - but you get used to it. The introduction says that Bernard would rather this book didn't exist ... but I for one am really glad it does.
