    This is a must read!!!!

    Even if you are not a Beach Boys fan (and I am not), you will absolutely enjoy this book. A true insight into the tragic, turbulent and tumultuous lives of this legendary 60's band and its tortured leader and creative genius, Brian Wilson. From the physical and mental abuse the Wilson brothers suffered at hands of their cruel and controlling father, Murry, to fame and success to drug abuse and just plain bad behavior. This book is a must read! I could not put it down --- and believe it or not, I've read it three times! Order it today!
