Just finnished it. Nice review and summary of musical and fashion evolution within the punk - post-punk - goth - deathrock - batcave - cyber - industrial - EBM - steampunk - and others.

I read this book yesterday at my friends place just as a method to not distract him at sewing his stuff. I did enjoy it much and I have chosen this book from my friends library because I just recently met Natasha last week at one concert. I am looking forward to new things to read.
