HISTORY of ROCK and ROLL 101: The TextVook by Dr. Vook, Ph.D and the Charles River Editors

Really Skimpy

Published in 2011 by Vook

The Beatles arriving in America in February of 1964
This tiny e-book comes in at 28 regular book pages according to Amazon. Let's face it, that is too small to really cover the history of rock and roll. The facts that are here are good and the book is written in a fairly interesting manner. I read the whole thing on my smart phone using my kindle app while waiting in line for a rental car. It's good for that sort of reading, but if you need anything comprehensive about the history of rock and roll this book is not what you need. In my opinion, it serves as little more than a general introduction with some broad concepts outlined and a few sentences about examples of each of these concepts.

I would recommend skipping this book and just cruising Wikipedia and taking advantage of their hyperlinks and perusing topics that interest you about rock and roll.

I rate this book 2 stars out of 5.

This e-book can be found on Amazon.com here: History of Rock and Roll.
