"Engaging memoir. Summers is refreshingly endearing."--"Kirkus Reviews" "A memoir that is just as generous (and sometimes meticulous) in providing details as it is in exploring the human toll of living out the 'collective fantasy' of being a 'rock god.' There are many great rock moments that dazzle. This is a stage-side account of the birth, rise and dissipation of the Police--and fans of the band will not be disappointed--but it is also an honest travelogue of a British kid who, subsisting 'on a diet of music and hope, ' traversed the most coveted landscapes of pop culture and lived to write about it."--"Publishers Weekly" "Finely written. Readers curious about the dissolution will find lots of insight, at least from Summers's point of view. This terrific book should be in demand in public libraries. For academic libraries collecting rock'n'roll history, it is essential."--"Library Journal"
