About the book:

If you squint, you can see past the Wired-style layout of this densely packed volume into every facet of rock history. Pop art colored charts show the intersections between the histories of rap, punk, rhythm and blues, psychedelic, and Motown. A heavily annotated list covers virtually every one-hit band in rock's history. Images from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, including Patti Smith's dilapidated combat boots and Keith Moon's high school report card, squeeze their way onto the crowded pages. And, though it provides excellent coverage of the unsavory kinds of rock that are often left out of 'official histories' such as punk and grunge, this is, ironically, one of the nicest smelling books to cross the Pop Culture Editor's desk this year.
