A must have book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 40 Years of Queen (Hardcover)
This book is an official Queen book, which makes it much more reliable than any other book written on Queen. It also meets the standards of the band with it's design, memorable replica of items from different periods (~30 items: posters, ads, etc.) and its very high quality. The book itself is a hardcover book.
I do recommend buying the UK version book, which includes an outer box (slipcase) and a CD which includes interviews with the band. The back cover of the book differs as well. However, there are no differences in the contents of the book itself. They are identical within - page by page.
Queen fans will buy this book anyway. I guess this book won't include anything new for them. But they won't regret having it.
For everyone else, who wants to have a memorable book about the band, this is the most recommended book for them to own.
A beautifully designed photographic book, with lots of memorabilia replica. Contains a brief history of the band, it's members, their albums, main live performances (Wembley, Live Aid...). The essential things anyone must know about the band.
If you are looking for an in depth story of Queen or their members, then this is not the intention of the book.
