Michael Heatley: The Encyclopedia Of Rock
The book is full of information about nearly any band that you can think of. The only down side is that the book was published in 1995.

Richness of Content: The book is full of information about nearly any band that you can think of. The only down side is that the book was published in 1995. So if the band you want was formed in a time later than 1995, you should look for another book. That doesn't stop it from being a lot of fun to read (not to mention giving you a lot of accurate information about your favorite bands). // 9

Style: The writing style is confusing. The book is called "The Encyclopedia Of Rock" but the book is split up into many sections: "Rock N' Roll, Pop, Rock, Rap, Reggae, Metal, and Dance." The biographies are really accurate but, really, if you bought a book on rock music you wouldn't expect there to be so many genres in it. // 6

Overall Impression: I love how the information is totally accurate and how the biographies are really easy to read. There are also pictures of some of the bands which I think helps a lot. I really hate the extra random genres that are mixed into the book. I don't think anyone would go "Wow, I love rap music! Let me look up information in a book on rock music!" // 7
