Five Against One: The Pearl Jam Story Paperback – April 1, 1998
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Glom the Pearl Jam ethos from a single vignette. In 1994, the band was scheduled to play the Boston Garden, and a contract clause stipulated band access to "the fabled Celtics court." No one told the Bruins, though, and when they showed up for practice, the basketball floor was down over their ice, and "Pearl Jam [was] happily immersed in a vigorous game of b-ball." Beantown media "chastised the band for pulling celebrity rank," but in a defining gesture, head Jammer Eddie Vedder later hung around the Bruins' locker room until he was invited in. In the ensuing rocker-jocker fest of manly respect and merriment, "chances are [Vedder] neglected to mention" that the night before "he'd sneaked into their locker room and smuggled out one of their hockey sticks." Longtime PJ supporter Neely examines the band of the '90s in disturbing detail: the fight against Ticketmaster, Eddie the antistar, the way PJ's "much-lauded distaste for hype was the hype" --it's all here, presented to excite the fans and inform more casually interested readers.

A significant portion of the text is committed to the re-creation of Eddie's family life. The text is fair and does not draw conclusions as to who was "right" or "wrong" in the various family conflicts described. Given the tremendous effort in recounting this history I was disappointed that the author could not better relate these details to psychology of the band or to Eddie's modern day image.
