Phillip Crandall's book about Andrew WK's I Get Wet has been one of
my favourites from this wonderful series of books. Fans will love
it, sure. But if you're like me, if you didn't quite get the fuss
first time around, you'll not only find a funny, sad, fascinating
story, you'll find great heart-on-(record)-sleeve writing. -- Simon

Crandall gets at the heart of Andrew W.K. better than any other previous writer. You'll know this much after reading the first few pages of his book. What you'll have to ponder after you've finished reading is the way in which Andrew connects the dots among I Get Wet, Daydream Nation, Appetite for Destruction, Dr. Feelgood, OK Computer, Slippery When Wet, Loveless... -- Paul Gleason * Caught in the Carousel *
Phillip Crandall, an acclaimed music writer and Inverness native, has revisited the release of W.K.'s breakout album in his latest paperback on I Get Wet, part of the books-about-albums series 33 1/3.
