    1. This was a fascinating and frankly depressing look into Kurt Cobain and the band Nirvana from the multifaceted view of different people. It gives a more complete picture than I've ever seen of what Nirvana was really about and the real tragedy that was Kurt Cobain.


    2. I liked this book and I liked all of the pictures included in it. The biggest problem I had with it, was that it didn't really give me new information that I didn't know about the band. Like I felt like a lot of it was stuff I already knew just worded in a different way. But I really enjoyed the photographs and pictures of tickets. That made it different from any other Nirvana or Kurt Cobain book I've ever read. I also really liked the article on what type of guitar Kurt played because I never h [...]


    3. This book looks good, but it doesn't offer anything new on the band. If you don't own anything on Nirvana it's worth a look, but if you already have items on the band it's not really worth the money. The best photo is def. the cover shot (which is beautifully designed with the band name cut out). Now because I've already read quite a bit on Kurt and the band, the most interesting section for me was def. the part of Kurt and the bands guitars of choice. This book is heavily Kurt centric as well. [...]


    4. The history of a band that had such an impact on the music industry and listeners in the 90s makes for an interesting read. There are details within this book that I did not find from researching the band online. If you are a Nirvana fan, or simply are interested in music as a career I would definitely recommend this book.


    5. There was no new information that we didn't already know, but plenty of pictures I've never seen! A lovely tribute.
