I really enjoyed it, even if Robb's style is a little bit too prone to repetition. But the subject matter more than compensate for the shortfalls, as well as the fact that Robb has a first account knowledge of the story, which lacks in other biographies of the Roses, he was there to witness the rise of the band.
And that is the best part of the book.
The later part is skimmed over a bit too quickly, without really adding anything much new to what we already know about the reunion and how it came about.
The solo careers could also have done with a bit more in-depth details.
Still, it remains a classic for Stone Roses and music fans.
