The content in the book is surprisingly light and refreshing. I had a few laugh-out-loud moments despite the fact that I was born after the 80s. I understand all the references to new wave because I'm a lover of the bands he mentions in the book.
I'm having a hard time getting far into the book because of the ridiculously short sentences and brutal editing. The repeated mentions of certain events just a few pages apart from each other is awful. I'm not sure I'd read this again.
