Many problems with this book. First no one did a spell or grammar check! Just reading the first few pages I found numerous mistakes. Did anyone even proof read this?! I mean at all?! "Layne" was even spelling "Lane" in a few places. At least get that right! I started skipping through the book just to see if there were portions I wanted to read...no. The majority of the quotes from the band members were all quotes I have already read online or in article, someone seemed to use wikipedia a lot while "researching" this book. There is some technical detail from interviews with people that helped actually create the records "in the studio." But even then it didn't seem like well balanced information. Just random stuff. The cover of the book does not look at all like the cover pictured on B&N. It looks like someone made it in MS Word the night before they printed the book. The pictures inside the book look like they were printed on a 1995 laser black and white printer and that the pictures were copy and pasted from an online search (i.e. bad quality). Pages 72 to 111 (the end of the book) are pages marketing/reviewing other bands. No thanks. In the "author's" dedication, he thanks many people for doing a "professional" job. C'mon. I am not a professional writer, but I did go beyond high school in my education. You would think whoever funded and published this book would at least have someone with a higher education background to read the book at least once! I mean, I could have read this book for this guy and found hundreds of errors with one read through. You can't even read it most of the time because the sentences are incomplete, don't flow, have typos and are horribly constructed. DO NOT WASTE YOU MONEY ON THIS BOOK. You can just search for "Alice in Chains" online and get all the same info for free. Spend your money on seeing the current Alice in Chains touring if you like they new dynamic, or buy a t-shirt, or just have a nice dinner. Or maybe you can even write your own book. Because I guess anyone can write something and get published these days. B&N should also screen the products they sell on here...if I wanted to pay for something like this, I would go to a high school writing class and pay someone for their term paper. Or just read some random person's online blog.

OMG this book is terrible, skips around and you can tell he got all his information off the web, 90% of the material I've read on-line. How could you put "Alice In Chains" name on this what an insult. The amount of time that band puts into each one of their songs to make perfection is truly amazing, they deserve allot more then this book. Don't read this it will only piss you off.

We were unfortunately one of the bands associated with this "book." Not only did this jerk charge us $50 to be a part of it (Understandable - to help with publishing costs and also give bands an exposure opportunity), but he took the money and ran. He promised for the $50 that we'd be placed on a CD sampler of bands influenced by Alice in Chains. At this point, not only has he never delivered on the promise to include a CD, but we've received 1 of 5 copies promised, we have never seen our name associated with press - and we certainly never agreed to such a poorly written and edited piece of garbage. Please do NOT associate the quality of the bands with the lack of quality of this product. I am SO SORRY to anyone who decides to read, let alone purchase output from this guy. The other reviewer is right in his synopsis: The book is garbage, and as far as I'm concerned we were clearly defrauded.
