A must have to all Nirvana and Kurt fans.
The book shows the unseen life of an broken hearted child, artist, piscian, left handed.
You wont stop reading after you start, very detailed and insightful.

Thourough and interesting

Charles Cross gives us a thourough look into the life of Kurt Cobain. The reading of this book made the story of the group and the man even more interesting thanks to the many details and anecdotes I didn't know about. The only flaw would be that it seems a little bit too "courtney approved". But nevertheless it remains a reference if you want to learn about the most gifted poet of the nineties.
The end of the book and the image the author describes is absolutely beautiful !

A must have for a Nirvana fan

I've seen several Nirvana books, but this one I couldn't put down.
This book has a high level of detail, and will let you understand the meaning of most of the songs Kurt wrote.
Even though Kurt passed away in 1994, this book will enlighten you and help you understand him more. This book, in addition to having all the Nirvana records and the box set will give any Nirvana fan, exactly that,...... Nirvana(Paradise).
This is the story of a man who changed the World.
