Published at the end of August in Europe (in Canada, September 5th, and the USA, October 2nd) was a new addition to the bookshelves. Toby Manning's "Rough Guide to Pink Floyd" is the latest title from the publishing group which made their name through informative, impartial travel guides, and we have three copies to give away!

roughguideManning has put together a very well researched guide to all aspects of the Floyd's career. Their story is told accurately and with much supporting comment from the musicians themselves, and the book provides enough reference pointers in the rear to provide the newer Floyd fan with plenty of paths to go down in search of more information or particular music to listen to.

You can read our full review of the book through this link. Suffice it to say, it is an excellent reference, that fans of all knowledge levels will get things from.

To mark its publication, we have three copies to give away to one lucky Brain Damage visitor, thanks to our friends over at Rough Guides. You need to answer the following questions correctly - the answers can be found at the Rough Guides website and at Amazon:

  1. How many pages does "Rough Guide To Pink Floyd" have?
  2. True or false? This is Toby Manning's first book.
  3. Roughly how many Rough Guide books are there now (of any subject)?

and then email your answers, together with your postal address, to: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it with the subject line of "Rough Guide", by 11:59pm (UK time) on October 30th. Please note that no correspondence will be entered into, and that the competition mailbox is unmonitored - entries will be checked on October 31st, a winner picked at random by an independent party, and the winner announced here shortly after.
