    I too wasn't thrilled at the cost of shipping (and the inevitable fees for changing my pennies into English pounds) but I did order it once my wife's interest was piqued.

    Personally I'd trust old band friend Armando Gallo over this author. Another thread just popped up about a Rolling Stone magazine article claiming that the meaning of The Knife is about the 1970 Kent State Ohio student shootings. BS. Their exaggeration and fake news comes from this book. And its author published the book with an Armando Gallo photo for its cover without permission. Don't take the bait on this one. From Gallo:

    ARMANDO GALLO Tuesday, 03 March 2020 09:01
    This is Armando Gallo, author of THE book Genesis I Know What I Like. And the photo that you are using - without my permission - to announce a similar book by M Giammetti. Please remove it. I don't want to call my lawyer...
    One Love,
    Armando

    Ancient Chord: I contacted Kingmaker Publishing today and I received a quick answer from no-less than Greg Spawton (Big Big Train) himself! His answer follows: Dear John, You may or may not be aware that the English language edition of Mario's book has been licensed from a publisher in Italy (Giunti). The Italian version, printed with broadly the same contents and the same cover image was published in 2013 and 2014. We understand that Giunti have permissions for all photographic content. The photo on the front cover is, according to Giunti, by David Gahr. I am at a bit of a loss as to why you feel there is an issue or a controversy in this matter? Best, Greg Spawton, Kingmaker

    I answered back to Greg a few minutes ago and quickly got this response: Thanks for the clarification, John, and for the kind words about BBT. We understand that Armando is referring to a picture used by a website when they published a news article about the book back in March. He was not referring to any picture in the book. Mario is a highly respected journalist in Italy and his book is a significant addition to the literature on Genesis. Best, Greg

    ^^^Alright if that's the case, I stand corrected. But I did assume that the comments above on my post were from Armando Gallo. And I like BBT too.

    Like most, I've read a ton of Genesis books but jumped on buying this version. As an avid fan, nothing new in the story but very well researched, plenty (majority) of quotes on the song reviews by members of the band. Exhaustive tour listings. The same format, story, songs, live show, and tour listings. Was I happy - definitely! I can't get enough Genesis material to read.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.
