Book Description

March 1 1999
The Cobain Dossier brings together all the best writing about both Cobain and the phenomenally successful Nirvana from both before and after his death. While not implying that there was anything suspicious in his death, every commentator has a different view on the motivation behind his suicide. This book presents a picture of the man, his influence and the impact of his life and death on his generation.

Review

"Editor Martin Clarke has selected each article with care: they're biographical, factual, theoretical, even extreme. Each piece is like a jigsaw - by the end of the book you have a bigger picture" -- Heat Magazine

"With the fifth anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death just weeks away, The Cobain Dossier reminds you why we've bothered keeping count." 4 out 5 -- Select Magazine

The Cobain Dossier is a good book and is a good read if you have the extra time, but if you're looking for something with a lot of detail I recommend Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana. The Cobain Dossier does state some facts and has some awesome pictures, if anything I would have bought it anyhow just for the pictures. Although, the thing about the book that I don't really like is each chapter is written by a different author and although it does go in order, the chapters really don't flow. Most all the information found in this book can be found in Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana, and Who Killed Kurt Cobain (The Mysterious Death of an Icon). But again, if you have the extra time and money, this is a good book. If not for the reading, then for the pictures alone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dead almost 8 years now..... May 22 2002
Format:Paperback
Much like Lennon, Hendrix, and Morrison, the ghost of Kurt Cobain has probably learned that there really is no bigger business in entertainment than an untimely demise. This dossier gathers together 22 articles from British and American magazines on the man, his band and his wife, each recounting the overly familiar story of grunge, drugs, stomach pains and shotguns. While often engrossing stuff, much here dwells on post-suicide events, making this not only morbid, but sometimes repetetive reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kurt, to you with love Nov. 29 2001
Format:Paperback
This book is a must have for every Kurt Cobain fan. The pictures are excellent. It goes into great detail about his childhood until he became the star that he was destined to be. Most of the facts are correct and you can't put it down once you stop reading it. It is true Kurt. This book represents the bad and good but I still love Kurt Cobain. He went through so much in his life - mostly difficult times. So, definitely - buy this book. You won't regret it.

2.0 out of 5 stars not very impressive Jan. 4 2005
By anna - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The word usage was good, not ab ad writer, but some facts were way out of truth, like how he describes kurt "and did so much damage to his head hat police could only identify his body through fingerprints. dental records were no use because nothing was left of his mouth" that is total bs. there was no exit wound, and hardly any blood. his head was clearly not "blown off" and there was hardly ANY damage to his head.. that upsetted me.. its an insult to kurt's memory
