“Takes on the momentum of a suspense novel, and triumphs because of the commitment and fearlessness of Metallica…This Monster Lives shows that tenacious reporting can still produce great narratives, even about the most mega of megaplatinum stars.” ―New York Times

“A fascinating look at the logistics of making an album and the dysfunctional family that bands can become.” ―Chicago Tribune
