On a flick through, it's really badly laid out and there's lots of noticeable errors eg morgenmuffel and loserdom (both assuredly print productions) being called e-zines.
And it gets worse - turns out Teal Triggs didn't even bother contacting a lot of people whose zines she used. And of course she made more errors which could have been avoided had she bothered to check first.

I'd advise boycotting this book and getting some zines instead.
As should be expected, there's a lot of space dedicated to punk zine covers. If I compiled an equal-sized book out of my favorite pages from all of my "punk flyer" books, then the results wouldn't be as visually rich as this book. I can think of some old industrial, noise, and experimental music zines that would have fit in perfectly, but I saw no zines from these music underworlds. Aren't there heavy metal zines? I saw none. Anyway, I love this book.
I don't understand why someone who got their zine cover pictured without permission would complain. It's like some old punk guy complaining because his 1983 Flipper show flyer appeared without permission in a flyer book. Zines commonly picture other zines without permission and, of course, recycle images from everywhere with impunity. But a couple of offended zinesters want to keep people from buying this book. For some people, I guess it all hinges on whether the author showing their forgotten zine cover is able to make a buck. I must have more humility than them; if it were my zine, I wouldn't care. Furthermore, if the book has mistakes, then so what? Go make another zine and stop trying to guard your legacy.
