Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Fleetwood Mac is older than many of its fans. Founded in 1967 and still running strong, the group is planning a 2012 tour and contemplating a new album. Fleetwood Mac: The Definitive History takes readers back to its British blues origins, thru its Stevie Nicks heyday and beyond. Graced with seldom-seen photographs and informed by in-depth research, this well-produced hardcover is guaranteed to push your nostalgia button. Editor's recommendation.

Publishers Weekly
This illustrated history arrives amid reports that Fleetwood Mac will tour again in 2012. That's good news for fans, who can catch up on 45 years of Mac with this oversized career-spanning book. With rare photographs, album-by-album details, and a concise overview of the band that has survived 15 lineups, music journalist Evans (Woodstock: Three Days That Shook the World) goes back to the beginning, when Fleetwood Mac was a burgeoning British blues band featuring bassist John McVie, guitarist Peter Green, and drummer Mick Fleetwood. The group later added Christine Perfect (who married McVie), and after several changes in members and musical styles, the core trio of Fleetwood and the McVies recruited guitarist/vocalist Lindsey Buckingham and vocalist Stevie Nicks. Success didn't come easy, and sordid affairs, dangerous amounts of drugs, and extravagant lifestyles threatened to destroy the volatile band. Though Evans navigates the haze of intra-band relationships, solo careers, hiatuses, and reunions, he gives short shrift to 1997's momentous reunion, making his account less than definitive. That said, Evans's insights about albums both renowned and forgotten will renew interest in the band's back-catalog and the vintage photographs will fan the flames of nostalgia. (Oct.)

    Rapidly skipping details. There are better "mac" books out there. Save your money.

    Can't read it - the print cannot be changed and it is way too small

    Cannot change the font on this one. The print is way too small to read on an e-reader.

    Doesn't read well on the nook

    For some reason, this book kept freezing and the only way to advance was to skip pages, so I would not recommend for the nook.

    Second, as an FM fanatic, I noticed many errors. Don't know if they were typos or bad research on the part of the author. If you are a die hard fan, I would not purchase. Better for the casual fan.
