The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic 
by Jessica Hopper.

"In this crucial book, Hopper schools us all in the art of criticism. You will be reminded, as I was, why you care to read and write about (and listen to!) music to begin with. Hopper's relationship with music is a joy to behold."
