    Interesting!

    This book is a quick easy read and well worth every minute. Entertaining and interesting from the cover to the last word. Surprisingly informative about his role in various aspects of the music industry. Have given this book as a gift to several friends and all of them commented about how surprised they were to find it so interesting.

    Great Book

    I love this book! I read it on whim--I had heard some of his music and then decided to read the book. It is hilarious, informative, thought-provoking, everything a book should be. I really quite enjoyed this book. He is actually quite deep and profound at points. Be prepared though--it is definetly a book for the more liberal, free-thinking crowd.

    The Ultimate Guide to Frank Zappa

    I have read this book 9 times, and it definitely had a hand in warping my sense of humor (I read it for the first time when I was 14). Zappa was one of the most underrated musicians ever, partly because of his weirdness, but this book goes a long way in explaining who he was and what made him tick. Much of what he wrote then (early 90's) still rings true today, and you get a boat-load of great stories to go with it. I definitely suggest it.
