Review:

Praise for For Those About to Rock:

“Equal parts career guide and history lesson, For Those About to Rock tells not only how to get where you’re going, but where it all came from in the first place.”
The Globe and Mail

“... Enormously readable ... filled with first-person insights and useful information and peppered with the kind of trivia that appeals to even the nonmusical.”
The Gazette

“This is an extraordinarily entertaining volume for kids of all ages....”
Edmonton Journal

“One of ‘two books every Canadian musician must read.’”
–Long and McQuade
