I really liked the book. It was a required book for a rock history class so consider it good for a textbook.
If you're interested in learning about this era, it's super easy to read. I would even suggest it as a gift for someone who is enthralled by this era. Very in-depth look to rock and its progression. Lots of background history on bands and singers. There's only so much information you can read online that's likely true...

I gave it 4 stars because I rented this book and the copy I received was beat to hell, but all the pages were there.

This book was a fairly interesting companion to the Rock History class I took that required it. With that said, the authors showed a clear bias throughout the book, their absolute love of The Rolling Stones. In fact almost every chapter in the book (especially the opening of the book which listed a certain Rolling Stones song as the epitome of all Rock and Roll) compared at least one or more artists to The Rolling Stones. This obviously affected the presentation of other information regarding rock and roll throughout it's lifetime. This book was especially weak in its coverage of Surf, which the authors relegated to a ridiculously small amount of space (a very short paragraph) despite the genre's five, or so, year height during the early to mid 1960's (they also failed to note it's resurgence, and popularity within the modern music scene). This was a well put together failure by a pair of authors who were so blinded by their Stones worship that they couldn't be bothered to write a clear history of Rock and Roll music. If you're teaching a Rock class, or just someone interested in the history of Rock music, avoid this book if you can, as it fails, miserably, to provide an accurate history of Rock, and Rock and Roll music.

Watch the videos, get the digital copy of the text, and learn something about rock! Loved the course and the writing. I already had some music knowledge, which made it easier, but anyone can succeed Highly recommended!

  • Whitegrove
Not the most interesting book, but I doubt you are reading it for fun. If you get the Kindle version it helps tremendously on Professor Campbell's tests.
textbook as good as that can be
