5.0 out of 5 stars Great book that tells the legacy of such a great act!
Before the Legend: The Rise of New Kids on the Block is a great account of how to make it in the music industry despite the obstacles and disappointments. Maurice Starr believed and never quit.

This book is a fast read with interesting tidbits and historical accounts of why this boy band lead to the creation of other boy bands, which happen to be White...

2.0 out of 5 stars Made me sleepy
This book is very boring and doesn't have many photos. It seems as if it was thrown together quickly to make bucks off the New Kids comeback as it many run on sentences and grammatical errors. I got this book for free from another site and the retail price is $15 - don't waste your money.

Before the Legend: The Rise of New Kids on the Block is a great account of how to make it in the music industry despite the obstacles and disappointments. Maurice Starr believed and never quit.

This book is a fast read with interesting tidbits and historical accounts of why this boy band lead to the creation of other boy bands, which happen to be White singing a form of rhythm and blues music.

Great for all the young girls who loved New Kids and for those working hard to make it in the music industry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Official Biography, March 18, 2013

This review is from: Before the Legend: The Rise of New Kids on the Block and . . . a Guy Named Maurice Starr: The Early Years: An Unauthorized Biography (Paperback)
This book told us the story about New Kids On The Block that written by person who close with Maurice Starr, NKOTB Producer.
Most of the story are same like the other book of NKOTB what so called "biography", there is no something new. Except maybe the story about their music producing and music environment in Boston back in the old day.
I suggest that NKOTB members should write a book on their own not written by someone else. I think the story will more authentic.
