A so - so biography that offers a slightly disproportionate emphasis on his admittedly extensive pre-zep career. Very little insight into the recording and live career of zeppelin. However, by far the most intrusive aspect is the blundering performance of the narrator. He gamely mispronounces a hefty proportion of the names in the book and the random emphases and lack of pauses or changes of tone for new paragraphs suggest he doesn't have a clue what he is reading.
