I read the book from these same writers "Last night a DJ saved my life" (the history of DJs) and now this book with an in depth account of each DJ. Excellent.

If you DJ or are a music fan in any way, this book is essential. A timely continuation of ther modern history lesson begun by Mr Brewster in book one, this time straight from the main player's mouths.
If you call yourself a DJ, you've got to know this history.

A little too inside baseball for my liking, whereas the other book took your on a journey showing you the relationships between influences, people and genres this is (as described) a look at a series of people without the overarching narrative to bring it all together.

A decent book, well researched, but not as powerful as it's stablemate.

It was a gift but they seemed to love it. Just the concept of the book was enough to bring joy.
