It's a reasonably good source of early Yes history -- even if most of the information was well-covered in the Welch book from a few years earlier, and in the Hedges book from the late 70s (out of print but also worth tracking down).
Stylistically, Watkinson's book is written with an "I've bought every t-shirt the band ever issued" brand of blind enthusiasm that cynical readers might find grating. But novice or terminally hardcore Yes fans will eat it up with no problem.
The only crude note is the negative, mean-spirited introduction written by keyboard player Rick Wakeman. It's so bad it's almost funny. The band, their fans, and this otherwise positive book deserve much better.
