Talking to Girls About Duran Duran Rob Sheffield read online review & book description:

From the bestselling author of Love Is a Mix Tape and Turn Around Bright Eyes, "a funny, insightful look at the sublime torture of adolescence".—Entertainment Weekly

The 1980s meant MTV and John Hughes movies, big dreams and bigger shoulder pads, and millions of teen girls who nursed crushes on the members of Duran Duran. As a solitary teenager stranded in the suburbs, Rob Sheffield had a lot to learn about women, love, music, and himself. And he was sure his radio had all the answers.

As evidenced by the bestselling sales of Sheffield's first book, Love Is a Mix Tape, the connection between music and memory strikes a chord with readers. Talking to Girls About Duran Duran strikes that chord all over again, and is a pitch-perfect trip through '80s music-from Bowie to Bobby Brown, from hair metal to hip-hop. But this book is not just about music. It's about growing up and how every song is a snapshot of a moment that you'll remember the rest of your life.

  • Wow! Can I relate!

    I related to this book on so many levels. As someone who loves music, especially new wave from the late 70's and early 80's, Rob Sheffield sums it up in true music geek fashion. I also found his recollection of his family very poignant and touching. This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. A definite read for any music junkie or 80's phile!

    Very funny and touching tales of love and music geek-dom in the 1980s. If you didn't come of age in this era, I'm not sure you will get a lot of the references, but it is well crafted enough that this should not detract from your enjoyment of the book.
  • If you are a fan of 80s music...

    This book is the first ebook I ever read, and I loved it! Anyone who was in their teens or early twenties in the 1980s can relate to the stories in each chapter. Highly recommend this book to anyone who loves new wave music. And contrary to what many people believe based on the title, this book is not only about Duran Duran.
