Weird Al: The Book, by Nathan Rabin with Al Yankovic

(hb; 2012: humor book / comedian biography)


From the inside flap:

"What do you do when someone's sold more comedy recordings than any other artist in history?  How do you commemorate over three decades' worth of live concerts and ground-breaking music videos?  And what's a fitting way to celebrate a slew of Grammy-award-winning albums and singles of brilliant satire?  You write a book - a big, fat, career retrospective book, that's what!

"This comprehensive illustrated tribute to the undisputed king of pop-culture parody, 'Weird Al' Yankovic, covers his songs, videos, performances, and life story in words and pictures, including photo captions, tweets, lists, and an introduction by the man himself."


Review:

Weird Al: The Book is a breeze-through, engaging and often laugh-out-loud funny media-mixed book that's worth owning, especially if you're a "Weird Al" fan.
