  1. Absolutely terrible book. It's got a very anti-Zeppelin tone, which is just bizarre, and the author (Dave Thompson) goes on and on multiple times about "Battle of Evermore" and how it is a band highlight - especially lyrically. In the foreword, the guy seems bitter that the Robert Plant: A Life book came out before his, and denounces every other book that has come out on Plant and/or Zep as worthless - especially with those that are sourced by people who actually know the subject(s) personally because most have an axe to grind. Then again, the press release touts Thompson as the "author of over 100 books on rock and pop culture." That's a red flag right away. There's lots of "writers" out there who churn out book after book on a variety or musical acts, and it always feels a bit disconnected and impersonal. The writing is usually stale, filled with 25 cent words and feels like nothing more than a way to make a quick buck on fans that will buy anything with the artist's name on it. Not-so-coincidentally, this comes out the week after Pagey's book in October.
