If you've seen the VH1 Behind The Music specials on FLeetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks there's NOTHING NEW to learn here. The writer took quotes from the VH1 specials and articles she found on the Fleetwood Mac Penguin website and wrote a book making up stories to surround these out of context quotes. Its sad that this "author" didn't make any attempt to do ANY research, talk to ANYONE or do ANYTHING other than view 2 hours of tv shows and read a few dozen old articles.

Sorry guys, nothing new here. It's all rehashed from the usual articles, and if you're a fan of the group you've read all these articles 6 times by now. Save yourself the time and go reread Mick's autobiography!

Even a casual fan of Fleetwood Mac's will not find any surprises in Leah Furman's biography, "Rumours Exposed". It's obvious Furman did not talk to anyone even remotely associated with FM, and she used readily accessable print/Web sources for the majority of her information. The writing is stop and go as well, as if this was a magazine article padded to book length, and Ms. Furman's style veers between rock-journalist pretension and gushy fan. Diehards may just want the book to add to their collection, but if you're less than that, just borrow it from your local public library.

Format: Hardcover
The book jacket says this is "a veritable treasure trove of Fleetwood Mac lore" and an "essential volume" to add to your collection if you're a Fleetwood fan. Insights? Untold stories? New info? Juicy details? Nope. You'll get the same quotes you've already read in the magazines, but sliced, diced, slapped together, and peppered with the author's maddeningly superficial and speculative judgments. Read the original magazine articles for the full quotes in their proper context, which provide you with far more well-rounded, fair, and informed views of each of these interesting, complex and talented people. This is decidedly unessential and not even a fun read if you actually like this band and all of its members.

Sorry guys, absolutley nothing new here: it's all rehashed from the same old published articles that everyone who's a fan has already read. Even the pictures add nothing exciting here. If you want a decent read of the group check out Mick Fleetwood's autobiography. And we can always look forward to the day when Stevie writes her own book...

This book blew me away. I have always loved the Mac. I've read all the books. This one was by far the best. All the good stuff, the love affairs, the rock and roll lifestyle was well documented. This one is definitely going on my list of best books of all time. Good going to the writer! You made my life a little brighter.

My friend who is a big fan of Fleetwood Mac gave me this book. I loved it. As it turns out all those Fleetwood Mac fans have a point. This is a most fascinating story, and even if I don't always appreciate their music, their story makes up for any such shortcomings. I couldn't put the book down.

By John Mutford on October 21, 2003
Format: Paperback
In the late 60s and early 70s plates shifted and faults widened. Then in 77 the earthquake hit. Landscapes were forever changed. After 77 shock waves continued well into the 90s and beyond, but none had the impact of the original. If you think my metaphor for the career of Fleetwood Mac is cheesy, you should read those in Rumors Exposed. Lame metaphors and cliches are as ubiquitous here as in any Behind The Music documentary. Nicks and Don Henley as the captain of the cheerleaders and star quarterback? Puh-lease. Furman also comes across a little too apologetic for bad behaviour, offering her own interpretations, excuses and psycho-analysis of band members. Her bias is particularly strong in favour of Stevie Nicks (but most fans seem to feel the same way, so this may not be a problem). I would have liked a little more objectivity. But the book is well constructed. Very detailed, and thorough, Furman has a knack for choosing what to put in and knowing where to put it (knowing how to say it is another issue). True, the book doesn't offer much in the way of revelations, but when you're a band this chronicled, there's little in the way of news. Not to say the book is unnecessary. Furman compiled all the relevant info that's out there, sifted out the "who cares?" stuff, and put together a complete, easy to read history of the band. Readers beware: the book was released in 2000 so if you're looking for info about the Mac's last album, you won't find it.
