Mark Blake's history of Pink Floyd - the first for fifteen years - has already been acknowledged as the final word on this remarkable band's life.
'Mark Blake brings Floydology into the 21st Century with this handsomely produced volume...' The Sunday Telegraph 'A detailed, orderly, first-rate read...' Q 'Thorough and well-researched... Lots of new material...' Observer 'The most complete and extensive work on the history of Pink Floyd yet' - Book of the Year Record Collector 'This is, in short, an easy and enthralling read...what really makes Blake's book one of the finest on Floyd there is, is the minutiae of the detail it offers...tasty morsels for Pink Floyd fans to feed on.' Classic Rock 'A superb, incredibly detailed, and essential look at the band's history - an indispensable addition to your bookshelves.' Brain Damage - Pink Floyd news 'No fan will feel short-changed by the welter of detail.' Independent 'The definitive account of one of Britain's best-loved bands.' Choice * 'Dutiful and thorough... paints a picture of a generation, helps us in some way towards understanding the decline and enigma of Syd Barrett, and gives us a picture of a band which, although trapped by their own devices into becoming the most lumbering of rock behemoths, at least were one of the few of their vintage who carried on giving a s***. We also get a portrait of one of rock's great Difficult Characters (Waters) - as well as one of its most decent and generous (Gilmour). And a kid of happy ending.' -- Nicholas Lezard Guardian 'Such is Blake's achievement in leaving no band affiliate's tale untold the author virtually redefines the term 'definitive biography.' Mojo 'Blake's account, newly updated, may well be definitive... It's a fascinating tale of destructive egos.' Sun 'A biography rich in anecdotal detail' Classic Rock
