    This book is well written, and in it's bulk, research and key interviews with band and friends provides a thorough story of this amazing band. It's clearly a bestseller for a reason. If you are a true R.E.M. fan you should have this book on your shelf.

    I've only recently become a fan of REM and I picked up this book to read about the band's origins and early history. Fletcher did a great job with describing the early music scene in Georgia and detailing the birth of REM. He never asked you to learn too many details and tidbits about the comprehensive world of music and never went too deep into the motivations of the songwriting. But the band does give input here and there and the rise and success of the band is very well-documented. I'd like to read Fletcher's take on the 2nd decade of REM. He did that good of a job in this book. Reetsh D. Shah, Amazon review

    "I have been a huge fan since I was 10 (1982). I have pretty much always avoided biographies on bands because it seems too easy for them to be sensational. I thought for sure any such book on R.E.M. would be aimed at those fans who discovered the band with "Losing My Religion" or "Everybody Hurts" and while those are fabulous songs - I was more interested in learning about the time that led UP to that point. This book starts at the very beginning and makes you feel like you are there. You gain a better understanding of the context of their sound early on and it's fascinating to follow the band as they grow, progress - have many successes and make a few mistakes along the way. I can't recommend this highly enough. I can't put it down." Flora, Amazon
