For anyone that may be interested, here's a review of the book by Independent Weekly music editor Grayson Currin (who also penned this article on the Truckers that I posted here last year). For whatever it's worth, David Menconi and Grayson have a bit of a history, which you can read more about in Menconi's blog entry about this particular review.

I've been exchanging emails with Menconi after he contacted me out of the blue recommending his book after somehow managing to find and read my Ryan Adams/Whiskeytown reviews on my website. Seems like a great dude. I was planning on picking up a copy of his book anyway but I ordered it. It got here a couple days ago and I'm about halfway through it. It's good so far. It's entertaining reading all the stories about the weird shit Ryan used to do at shows/to his friends/girlfriends.
