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."


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.
