Until a better bio focusing on the band gets released, this is probably the single best first stop for a new fan trying to learn the history.  Combine this book with AGD's book so you have the album facts and dates and you have all you need for Beach Boys 101.

If you buy only one book on the Beachboys, this is the one to get.  Well written, respectful, and chock full of informative and entertaining reading.

Agreed - a terrific collection of writings about Brian and the Beach Boys from various magazine and newspaper articles over the years, with plenty about SMiLE. How much more does any sane person need to know?!?! One advantage over David Leaf's excellent book is the various authors' takes on the band and what's going on -  it's not one guy's star-struck interpretation of history.  And it's editted by that very very nice chap Kingsley...

I think t his book is fantastic! Among LLSV, I re-read this more often than any book I own. I love the details of such rare eras that are discussed such as the Gary Usher/Wilson Project era, or the famous Rolling Stone article with the beach boys chanting: mama-yamma-glory-halalujah

Found it (used!) today. Not sure I recall having ever heard of it before, but was glad to grab it.

Yeah this was my first BB book. It's GREAT to have all these rare interviews from rare eras all combined.
It's still my favorite to read.
