I will be interested in reading it. I will take it with a grain of salt just like all the other books about the Dead and Jerry.

I didn't want to read ''Dark Star'' I had the same feeling as most on this thread have.
I can't say that book was terribly shocking.I suspect this book will read the same way.

^ yea Dark Star was a good read, although sometimes tough to digest. We already knew most of the larger circumstances tho

This is more of a he said she said book. It’s impossible for it not to be. Everyone has different sides to a story based on their own perspective...some truth could probably be found in all of it. Bruised egos mixed with a bit of panic.

It’s been nice over the years to see the humility from Bobby tho. He’s been the bridge, always game to play with any of his brothers....and sister :guitarred

How can you conclude something about it when you (and most people) haven't read it?

^ b/c it’s based on people’s perspectives...nobody ever has the same. Exactly what he said in the interview to promote the book. That’s he said she said stuff. Not to mention the couple that he had a previous beef with (and is a huge part of the story) declined to voice their perspective, along with others. Soap opera stuff at best
