Just received this today and am blown away by the production quality and content. I have only read a few pages but can hardly put it down to write this review. In a word, it's magnificent. The book is roughly dictionary or biology textbook sized and filled with pictures and text. There are both matte pages and glossy pictures in the book. There is even a 'centerfold' near the back of the book. The binding is very well done and the book although hefty rests easily in your hand - not too big in size but big on content. The stories are well written and engaging and, so far, seem heartfelt and revealing. They give you a great view into the lives of these groundbreaking artists and friends. I'm looking forward to reading the rest. Whatever you are paying for this book, if you are fan of The Beastie Boys this is a must have.
Reading this book at 43 was the first time I felt nostalgia, and I realized how cool it was to grow up with this band. Everything you'd expect from a Beastie Boys Book, and more (the Amy Poehler piece and recipes were happy surprises, as are the song suggestions I'll pile up in play lists). #MCAForever
This is a fantastic book for any Beastie Boys fan. The book is loaded with first hand accounts on things that happened through your their career along with tons of colour photos. Love this book and can’t put it down
