It doesn't cost $100 new/$70 used, like the only other edition available on Amazon. I would think that's the main attraction here.

If you own the second edition, published by 2.13.61 in the mid-90s, be aware that this is an exact reprint. I believe the only new material is a 1.5-page preface, and there is a different cover design (the new art is a painting based on the photo on the cover of the second edition). Redoubt misleads in calling this a 3rd edition. Unless you're sick of dirtying the pages of your second edition and want a brand-new copy, you don't need this. I rate this 5 stars for content and 1 for the false labeling.

By Richard S. Wilson on December 26, 2013
Format: Paperback
Read this book on a train across the country, very provocative analysis of what is and isn't rock music. According to Carducci, that is. Rancid and vituperative, take no prisoners type of book. You don't have to agree or accept his arguments to get a good read here. As a bonus there a lot of facts about bands and music history you might not know (and might not be correct). Not essential, but certainly fun, it might make you mad in a good way. Wouldn't like to meet Carducci in person, though! I have the copy with this picture and it was published in May, 2005, so it's a little dated.

Carducci spends half the book ranting like a Tea Bagger and the other half is a list of 80s hardcore bands and more Ted Nugent talk. Very disappointing. Carducci is also a mediocre writer. Fascinating subject, poor book.
