Whether you're a die hard Monkees fan, or just curious about that T.V. made rock group you loved so much when you were a kid, this is the book to answer you're questions. Packed with photos of those four lovable guys, it includes all kinds of little known stories told by the people who were there! You'll read all sorts of stories told by the Monkees themselves, and you'll learn about what went on behind the scenes of their fun T.V. show. Learn about the guys' struggle for creative control of their music and how they were able to win it with the making of their much loved album, "Headquarters." This is a must-have book, even for the casual fan

the pictures in this book are great, and show a lot of what the monkees were all about. lots of candids. but the best thing about this book is not the pics, but the stories told by micky, davy, mike, & peter. first hand info from the men who lived in the monkees phenomenon. a must read for a good laugh or a good sigh.

I think this is the best Monkee book I've read so far. It tells the tales in the Monkees' point of view, and the pictures are awseome. Plus they had interviews from people like Peter Noone, Ward Sylvester, Bobby Hart, and others. If you're a Monkee fan I highly suggest it.

Of all the books I have read on the Monkees, this is the first one I would recomend to the general public. The pictures are fascinating (not to mention sometimes hilarious) and the text provides some insight to the workings of the show. I wasn't a fan before, but after reading the book, I must say I had a change of heart!

I just got this book recently, and I was pretty disappointed with it. Although it's not The Monkees fault, almost every passage in this book has been quoted on one website or another, making almost everything in the book lose it's freshness. Also, the Monkees don't talk about the group's long breaking-up period (from when Peter left in spring, 1969, to when Micky and Davy finally called it quits in 1970) or their lives individually after they broke up and very briefly about their lives before they were picked for the show. Still, the few parts that weren't quoted on websites before are interesting (like the Micky-making-fun-of-Don Kirshner story), and it's charming to read their recollections, particulary Micky's and Peter's. In short, this is a good book, but it's missing some stuff, and don't be surprised if you've read pratically everything in it before.

This is advertised as the first serious book about the Monkees and it is really better than that. This book , done in the Monkees own words, reminds me of the Beatles Anthology somewhat. Anyone who is in the least interested in the Monkees or 60's music needs this great book. The photos are wonderful the words are honest and the memories are many. You gotta have this!

HEY HEY WE'RE THE MONKEES is a terrific book both for big Monkees fans as well as those who want a nostalgia trip to the Sixties. I much enjoyed that the book is entirely told in direct quotes from many different perspectives, including the four guys themselves as well as several of their producers, managers, songwriters, and others. It's not a comprehensive history, since the book only runs about 160 pages, although it does seem odd that so little is said in here about the group's breakup, since the text mostly skips that and jumps to descriptions of their periodic reunions. Also, much of the 160 pages is taken up by photos, which are well-selected and copious. Most are in black-and-white, with about 20 percent in color. My only real complaint about the book is that none of the photos has captions to describe who and what we're looking at. Now, it's true that the text helps to explain the photos, but still there were a lot of questions I had about them, like when each photo was taken, whether it was from their TV show or a live concert or a publicity still, and so on. Also, not many reviewers have mentioned the great cover, which I like so much I keep the book on display in my Sixties Room in my house.
