This book was terrible. The content was weak and repetitive. It constantly stated the obvious "In 1982, we didn't have facebook". Also, I'm not sure who this book is written for; people who were alive in 1982, people who are 15 now? I would not recommend this book to either of those groups. This book could have been shortened to a nice little essay suitable for the Walrus and it would have been lovely, but instead Jian (and his publishers) got greedy and took a little bit of content and streched it over 270 painful pages. If anyone other than Jian Ghomeshi wrote the book, then it would have never been published,
