I'm sure author meant well, but this book is so poorly written and edited that it's almost laughable. First, there's a distracting use of bold-face type all over the place--it's pointless and irritating. And then there are the typos: "Jimmy Hendrix" (any 15-year old knows that one) and "Astronomy Dominie" (should be "Domine"). I mean, if you're writing a book about a certain songwriter and misspell the name of one of his best-known songs, you're probably in the wrong business. Ultimately, this Syd Barrett book is a bit of a joke, and a sad one at that.
