Format: Hardcover
Unfortunately, this book is not available in the U.S. If anyone is interested, you can get it through the British Amazon site (amazon.co.uk) or the VdGG website (vandergraafgenerator.co.uk) [I tried not to give a star rating but the system wouldn't let me submit this mssg without doing so; so, five stars natch!]

As a proud owner of the full hard-copy tome, I was wondering whether it would be worth it to have the Kindle version as well. No pictures, obviously, which is a large part of the attraction of the larger book. But then I remembered how READABLE the book was... I plowed through it like it was an edge-of-yer-seat thriller... so I figured what the heck. Well, I needn't have worried. The book is every bit as engrossing on second read. And no annoying typos or scanning errors... this is a well produced version for Kindle. Money well spent. I hope it helps to finance Volume II...??

My ordered copy of the original hardcover went astray somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, and it has been a long frustrating wait for a new copy to come along. Thank goodness for Kindle, then, the cue for me to bury myself away for a week and enjoy one of the most enthusiastic, exciting and honest rock books I have ever read. The detail here is immense, the enthusiasm of the authors is unassailable, and while I will admit to skipping over some of the more technical muso-shaped passages, the contributions from the band members leaves you in no doubt just how well-deserved this biography is. I could never claim to enjoy every note VDGG recorded, particularly once we venture into the murky world of live recordings, and I've never been a huge fan of the post Godbluff era. But reading about it here did open my eyes to much I had missed, while the coverage of the earlier years simply confirmed my own belief that H To He is the classic that we should all be in awe of, as opposed to the better-feted discs on either side.

Possibly I would have liked to read more about Peter Hammill's solo career, but of course this is not the place for that... and the reunion is surely a candidate for a whole new sequence of chapters, should the authors ever find the time. A discography and photos would have been pleasing too, but that's just idle talk. If you love (or even merely like) VDGG, this book is an essential read.

In terms of writing, this certainly doesn't rank with the very best, but where information's concerned, it's great: Van Der Graaf's and (part of) Peter Hammill's careers are described in great detail; so even if it isn't a literary masterpiece, it remains a must-read for every fan. Not fantastic, but great nevertheless.
