"The best book I've ever read about AC/DC."
- Mark Evans (AC/DC, 1975-'77)
"A savvy new book... Fink, quite properly, can't stand the kind of music critic who feels pleasing a crowd is a suspect achievement, somehow antithetical to the spirit of rock. In the end, [he] seems to be in two minds about AC/DC. That seems the right number of minds for an adult to be in about them, especially an adult who encountered their best albums during the sweet spot of his youth."
- The Australian
"Recent books [about AC/DC]... didn't offer much to change our perception of the band. Jesse Fink's study of the Young brothers takes a different approach... giving us a different version of many stories, especially when it comes to the wheeling and dealing behind the rock. Fink is clearly in love with AC/DC, but he knows the old bird has some warts under her make-up, and doesn't shy away from revelations that cast the Youngs in a less than flattering light."
- Rolling Stone ★ ★ ★ ★ (four-star review)
"I loved it." - Jerry Greenberg (president of Atlantic Records, 1974-'80)
"A great job." - Back In Black and Highway To Hell engineer Tony Platt
JESSE FINK was born in London, England, in 1973 and raised and educated in Sydney, Australia, by his Australian parents. He is the author of three books and lives in Sydney with his daughter.
I love AC/DC and I did enjoy this book for the most part. Fink does a decent job at examining why AC/DC has had so much success and what makes them appealing to a large audience. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Connor

Got this book from the library and was a little apprehensive about reading it. The book doesn't bring anything new or really all that revealing about the band or the Young family. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Richard R.Nogavich
