This is by far the best ac/dc book. Why? Because it`s been written by someone who was actually in ac/dc. So what you get in this book are true stories of ac/dc`s history written by someone who was actually there and not written by some English music "journalist" who knows nothing about the inside story of ac/dc. I, personally, think that ac/dc`s best material was when Mark was playing bass in the band (ac/dc`s first 4 albums). I`m an Aussie, i`ve grown up with ac/dc since 1975 when i was a kid and was given a copy of their 1975 album TNT. Yes, Cliff Williams is a better bass player than Mark and, yes, all the ac/dc albums that Cliff has played on (Powerage to Black Ice) are great albums too, but me, personally, i`ll always love ac/dc`s first 4 albums the best. I can relate to the first 4 albums the best because those albums were so popular in Australia at the time when every other country was more interested in English punk or interested in American progressive rock and disco. AC/DC was a great Aussie pub rock band in the mid 70s and i only wish i was old enough to have had the chance to have seen them play, with Bon up front, in a pub gig in Melbourne in the mid 70s. Well, now thanks to Mark`s great new book, i can now read about some of the stories from those days when ac/dc was just an Aussie pub rock band playing small venues and some large ones too, like festival hall and the Myer Music Bowl which holds thousands. And Mark doesn`t dissapoint. He has some great stories of ac/dc`s early days. There`s also some great stories in this book of the band`s first English and European tours. And best of all, Mark doesn`t slag off any members of ac/dc in it. I know that there must have been some bad blood within the band when Mark was asked to leave, but, credit to Mark, he doesn`t say any real horrible things about any of the other band members. It just goes to show what a decent and down to Earth guy Mark is. If it`s only one ac/dc book you wanna read, then i suggest you get this one, and not a book written by someone who doesn`t even know the band.
