The entire book is composed of interviews with the major players in the New
York punk scene. They tell stories that are funny and sometimes contradictory
about how punk, New York style, came to be. Of course Johnny and The
Heartbreakers are in here and they even appear on the cover (in the original
lineup with Richard Hell on bass). There are also several good photos within the
book of the Dolls and Thunders and interviews with most of the band.
For accurate history this book has some faults but for raunchy dirt it can't be beat. The interview style makes it easy to read and hard to put down once you start. Get it.
