Ron Geesin - The Flaming Cow: The Making of Pink Floyd's Atom Heart MotherRon Geesin's 'The Flaming Cow: The Making of Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother' has been getting very positive feedback from all aspects of the Floyd community. As we've noted before, the book gives Ron's own perspective on the project, and it really is a fantastic read! From Nick Mason's amusing foreword, through the story of how Ron got to know the various members of the Floyd, to co-composing and recording the piece variously known as Epic and The Amazing Pudding, before settling on the title we all know and love, the book reveals all with a great wit and honesty, along with masses of previously unseen photos from the recording sessions.

New online bookstore Wordery.com is offering readers a chance to get their hands on some exclusive photographs from the book The Flaming Cow, including a couple of Pink Floyd in action, and a couple of Ron working in the studio with the Floyd, signed by Ron himself. All you have to do is answer three questions relating to the album, and we were pleased to see that they weren't too simple! Head over to wordery.com/pink_floyd_competition for more information. The competition ends midday (UK) on November 18th 2013.

Other than from the Wordery website, you can also order the book from the various Amazon stores across the world: Amazon UK, Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Amazon France, Amazon Germany, Amazon Espana and Amazon Italy. For those who prefer the convenience of reading on their Apple iThings, the eBook version is now available to purchase and download from the iTunes Bookstore, at a newly-reduced price - so no better time to snap it up! There are enhancements and extras over the print edition - principally, you can see Ron answering questions submitted by Brain Damage visitors about Atom Heart Mother, in a fascinating two-part video Q&A session, which was conducted by me in Ron's own studio...
