From Library Journal
Draper's portrayal of Wenner as a talented but drug-abusing, scattered, celebrity-crazed individual--a political dilettante and a former love child--leaves the reader wondering how he made such a vulgar (and brilliant) success of the nation's pop culture periodical, Rolling Stone . That question remains largely unexplained here, although Draper still offers some engaging insights into the pitfalls and complications of publishing. He chronicles how the journalistic talent Rolling Stone attracted--including Hunter S. Thompson, Lester Bangs, Jon Landau, Greil Marcus, Tim Cahill, and others--kept the magazine afloat despite Wenner's inattention and bungling. This is for larger communications collections and long-time readers of Rolling Stone. -- Lauren Bielski, New York

Other than that, the shipping was quick and the book seems to be in decent condition. I believe I scored a first-edition print too.
Now out of the 60's came many things good and bad but in the late 60's Rolling Stone the magazine was formed. However it's never that simple and Draper conveys that well. With inside information due to hundreds of interviews and just some good research he pieces together what life was like behind the cover.
My only fault is that I wish this book could have been written in 2004 instead of 1990 so that I could learn about recent events. Overall this is a great book and I highly recommend it for musicians, journalists, and any Rolling Stone magazine avid fans out there.
