Without doubt the most popular American rock band of the 21st century, Linkin Park has grossly superseded the ambitions, talents and durability of their original 'Nu-Metal' contemporaries to become a first rate rock band. Split into five sections, Daniels' guide begins with a lengthy group biography, followed by a section covering the band's music, videos, tours, films and DVDs. A hugely illuminating and visually stunning study of a truly modern rock act.
"It's quite remarkable to me that despite his heavy workload with countless publications, author Neil Daniels still finds time to regularly put out books on a wide variety of rock-related subjects... Linkin Park – An Operator's Guide is an attractive looking book with black and white photos on every page, and whilst the style of it could easily have resulted in a shallow overview bogged down by clinical statistics, it actually goes much deeper than that."
Phil Ashcroft – Fireworks
"A novel and well executed approach to music writing, this book could carry the title 'Linkin Park: A Geek's Guide' and is all the more wonderful for it."
Mark Hoaksey – Powerplay
