    • Absolutely fantastic history of their lives !!
    • Honestly, I'm not really a book person but the Beastie Boys Book got my attention and I'm glad I've had a chance to read it. Being from the NYC area and a fan of the Beaties Boys for decades, I found the book to be both interesting and informative. Even after having read it, I still have it out on the coffee table to go back and check out the pictures. Anyone that is a fan of the Beastie Boys will love this book.
    • Loved it.
    • Got it today so I haven't really read through everything, but I've jumped around and it's making me all nostalgic. MCA will be greatly missed and all these little anecdotes really bring out the b-boys persona. Love it already. I'll be poring over this for a while.
    • 500+ pages of THE BEASTIE BOYS' BOOK. Nuff said
