I found this book painful to read. I felt it said little about the so-called rivalries, went off on tangents other than the rivals, and lack clear continuity. And the author throws in irrelevant f-bombs where they're really not necessary. I'm not a prude, and I'm a long time and knowledgeable music fan (in my 60s), but this book doesn't cut it.
I've read several chapters, but can't waste my time to finish the book, so 'll return it to the library. Not a recommended read.
