    On and off, it took me a few months to finish this book. But that's not because it was boring. To its credit, it is an easy book to put down & pick up again. It has considerable depth, without being too deep. I enjoyed the chapters on early influencers. I started making notes on unfamiliar bands to listen to... by the end of the book it was 3 pages long!!! This book really opened my eyes to what else is out there. I would have liked a better global review - Stump bounces around the world and back ag On and off, it took me a few months to finish this book. But that's not because it was boring. To its credit, it is an easy book to put down & pick up again. It has considerable depth, without being too deep. I enjoyed the chapters on early influencers. I started making notes on unfamiliar bands to listen to... by the end of the book it was 3 pages long!!! This book really opened my eyes to what else is out there. I would have liked a better global review - Stump bounces around the world and back again when a a few dedicated chapters would have been better. My main criticism is that the author seemed to enjoy showing off his knowledge & use of obscure words. I consider myself quite well-read, but even I had to stop and look up at least three words (hands up if you know what a 'tocsin' is. I thought it was a typo, but now I know better.) Some I'm sure will be annoyed by all the 'long words'. To those folks I would say 'content over style'.

    A really solid history of progressive rock. I like the additions made with the updated version, though I wish Stump wouldn't have rushed past some bands. Still, great read for any fans of prog rock.

    Very informative if a little ham handed stylistically. The section on MAGMA wasn't nearly long enough.
