    As a fan of The Cure, albeit a relatively casual one, I found this book provided a bunch of information I had no idea about, in a very engaging and entertaining way. If you appreciate The Cure, this is well worth a read, and not just for the completionists.

    This is an excellent, well written, well illustrated book on the history of Robert Smith (including his childhood) and his band "The Cure". It covers the details about the recording sessions for each "Cure" album, up through the albums "the Cure", & "Faith", & "Join the Dots" (Box Set). Its very interesting to find out all they went through while recording these albums. Robert Smith is quite a "character".This book also contains a complete "Discography" of every album released by the Cure, from their beginning "Three Imaginary Boys" up through the 2004 release of "The Cure" album & "Join the Dots" (The Box Set). It also contains a list of all the people who have been members of the band, and the dates that they were members (They had quite a "turn-over"). It also contains a "Videography" of all their videos that have been released through the Video "Galore".This is a great book, and a "must-have" for any Cure fan, and I'm a fan. Do yourself a favor, and order one, you'll enjoy it. Its great reading for any rock fan period. Thanks!!!!

    This is definitely an interesting read if you want to know the dynamics throughout The Cure's history as a band but I was left a little dissatisfied. The author interviewed several band members so you do gain a good perspective on the band. But there was relatively little in the way of Mary Poole's role, and I find it hard to believe that she played a minor part in Robert Smith's songwriting/motivation. Also, as a previous reviewer mentioned, it did bother me that the author seemed to speed through later albums, when I was especially curious about the making of certain songs. And I did notice that, having read a series of interviews, certain points were skipped over - such as the fact that Fascination Street was written in reference to Bourbon Street (unless that's not true either??). Seemed odd to me that the author would dwell on 3 Imaginary Boys but would glaze over Disintegration.I do recommend this book, don't get me wrong. Just don't expect it to answer every question in relation to The Cure.

    As complete a bio as we're going to find on The Cure until Bob really calls it quits for sure. The book is full of minutae and tidbits of The Cure you're not going to find anywhere else.
