It's a really informative book that doesn't sanitize things, for better or worse. You get firsthand insight on situations that were fairly uncomfortable, but at the same time, everybody besides Pete Ham comes across as kind of an a-hole. There were a lot of terrible situations and misfortune outside the band's control, but they also brought a lot of their problems on themselves, both directly and indirectly. So if you keep in mind that it's a very warts-and-all read (especially concerning Joey Molland), it's well worth it. Just don't expect to come out of it with a positive view of the band members.
