    1. Exhaustively researched, which I appreciated even though the subject doesn't pack the cultural weight it did when it was written in 1990. I got tired of reading about Jann Wenner too. The book obsesses over him, and with good reason - "It's Jann's magazine," people said frequently - but by the epilogue, I was Jann Wenner'd out, especially after reading 400 pages of how horribly he treated most of his journalists.The Hunter S. Thompson parts were worthwhile - the clashes he had with the magazine [...]

    2. I was surprised to find this a pretty illuminating tale about entrepreneurship. The founder of Rolling Stone, Jann Wenner, may believe his ultimate success was based on his own hard work and canny ability to predict trends. In fact, he was mostly lucky and supported by dozens of hard-working and dedicated employees who worked ungodly hours to get the magazine out on time. Read this then watch The Founder, the movie about Ray Krock and McDonalds. This will tell you everything you need to know abo [...]

    3. I only read the prologue to this. I checked it out for some work-related research and I feel like I've gotten the info I wanted from reading the prologue. Otherwise I just don't care enough to read the rest of the book. I'm not a fan of Rolling Stone magazine. I get it. Rolling Stone was once totally awesome, back when the music business was in its infancy, some now-famous and awe-inspiring writers and photogs worked there and it is definitely a place holder for American pop culture.

    4. I lived through some of this and enjoyed the memories. However, he got things wrong, such as downplaying the No Nukes concerts. He wasn't in the office and didn't really know the personalities. He zeroed in on Jann Wenner, which makes sense. All-in-all, a good read.

    5. I found this fascinating, despite my being no fan of Rolling Stone magazine. An in-depth history of the rag and, most importantly, the psyche of its publisher.

    6. Reminds me that I need to renew my subscription! LOL. Rolling Stone was my source for everything until I discovered Huffington Post, but you don't get the same awesome journalists as those from RS.

    7. This explained much about why Rolling Stone didn't cover all rock-n-roll bands. Jann Wenner was a rock fan, not an objective publisher.
