If you grew up in the MTV age then this book is an amusing treat. It brought back great memories of gathering around the t.v. in breathless anticipation of every new video, The behind the scenes stories are entertaining and the details of how MTV came to be are interesting.

No the best book, but good none the less.

This is a decent popular history of the best years of MTV. Besides a quick intro to each chapter, the story is told in quotes, which I found to be a little annoying; I wish they had mixed these with a more traditional narrative. On the other hand, hearing the story in the voices of those who lived it was pretty interesting, especially when stories conflicted. You could tell who was kind of a jerk (ahem, Adam Curry) and who was maybe smarter than they seemed. All in all, an entertaining read that was sometimes difficult to put down.
