    "The punk rock era by far is fascinating to me. As you read Please Kill Me you will see that it is a true life series of interviews that bring the book together. I loved that it was a very accurate picture of what the punk rock era was and the people involved. This book you will not want to put down. It's not one you will read to uplift your spirits, but one that will show you how punk rock derived and who experienced it."
