All in all it's a fun read. It's not preachy with a pithy ending. It has it's moments when you really do think it could have been more but I still found it hard to put down. It's most amusing moments are when Lucifer throws in anecdotes and sets the record straight on historical events.
Be sure to check out The Real Tuesday Weld's CD inspired by this book. It's not for everyone but the Electronica-Jazz has such a unique sound.
