    1. Being a Breaking Benjamin fan, I've always wanted to read stuff about my favorite band. I once skimmed through a copy of My Chemical Romance's biography, but I didn't care much about MCR, so I never bought it.Then, one day, I was strolling through my local library's biography section, (looking for a different section that had recently been moved,) when I came upon a book sticking halfway out of the shelf. I noted the title, and thought: "Oh hey, it's a book about a band. Wonder which one?" I fli [...]


    2. So this book is a 2.5.A few negative observations:The writer's strength seems to be in short story and poetry. He needed more of a hand helping him keep this longer work cohesive; parts of it are really solid and complete and parts are just wandering. I kept getting bored and wanting to put it down, but since I was reading it for research, I kept on. Let me be clear: the stories are interesting, BUT they are constantly interrupted or styled in a way that makes you say "can we get to the point no [...]


    3. The problem with most rock-n-roll books is that the bands they're about have already made it.

    4. Loved the way it was written from a spectators view. Being the father of Aaron from Breaking Benjamin was an interesting insight into the Breaking Benjamin early days. Well worth reading. Defiantly for fans of music and up and coming bands.


    5. Could have been better. I got a little bored with how every concert was described to me, but I'm someone who's pretty familiar with that sort of thing. -shrug-
