Some poeple are saying that punk truned 30 this year. If you're citing 1976 as the birth year, since that year introduced the Sex Pistols, Ramones and the Clash to the world, it's probably about right.
So, based on that call, this is an excellent 30th birthday present for punk rock.
With an intro by Debbie Harry, the book takes readers on a detailed and interesting trip through punk history, perfectly balancing information and entertainment. It'd make a sweet gift for anyone on your list, but you're gonna want a copy for yourself, too.
Check out my full review of Punk: The Whole Story.
