This is the only authorized biography book by Def Leppard. A must have for every Lep fan!

DEF LEPPARD'S ACCURATE HISTORY TOLD

I BOUGHT THIS BOOK BACK WHEN IT WAS FIRST RELEASED, AND I BELIEVE THAT I READ IT IN AS LITTLE AS 4 HOURS!!! THE PREVIOUS PEOPLE WHO HAVE REVIEWED THIS BOOK ARE CORRECT IN SAYING THAT ONCE YOU PICK IT UP, YOU WILL NEVER WANT TO PUT IT DOWN AGAIN! INFORMATIVE, FUNNY(EVEN DOWNRIGHT HYSTERICAL AT TIMES-THANKS PHIL AND STEVE!!!), PERSONAL AND EVER HONEST, THIS STORY BY DAVID FRICKE IS THE MOST THOROUGH AND CONSISTANTLY ACCURATE BIOGRAPHY THAT COULD'VE EVER BEEN WRITTEN ABOUT THIS BAND. AND THAT SAYS A LOT SEEING I HAVE BEEN A FAN SINCE 1980 AND HAVE READ PRACTICALLY EVERYTHING THAT COULD BE WRITTEN ABOUT THEM!! DAVID FRICKE SPENT A WEEK WITH THE GUYS IN HOLLAND INTERVIEWING THEM AND GETTING TO KNOW THEM (LUCKY GUY!!!) AND THE READER CAN TELL FROM THE WAY THAT HE TELLS THEIR STORY. GREAT JOB DAVID!!! NEXT TIME CAN I BE YOUR ASSISTANT AND DO THE INTERVIEWING?! OK, OK, BACK TO REALITY!! LOL AS FOR ROSS HALFIN'S PICTORIAL, WELL ALL I CAN SAY IS THANKS FOR THE AWESOME AND SOMETIMES INTIMATE PICS(JOE IN THE BATHTUB FOR EXAMPLE), THEY WERE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! I HAVE LOVED ROSS'S PICTURES OF THE BAND EVER SINCE THE EARLY 80'S IN CIRCUS AND HIT PARADER MAGAZINES AND HE JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER AS THE YEARS GO ON. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK, ROSS!!!THIS BOOK IS A MUST HAVE FOR EVERY DEF LEPPARD FANS COLLECTION, NO MATTER THE PRICE IT IS TOTALLY WORTH IT!!! ANYONE WHO WANTS TO TALK ABOUT THIS BOOK OR DEF LEPPARD FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME! I LOVE TALKING ABOUT THIS BAND!!! AND IF YOU NEED A HOME MORTGAGE LOAN, EMAIL ME TOO! INTEREST RATES ARE AT AN ALL-TIME LOW RIGHT NOW! SORRY, NEED TO PLUG THE BUSINESS ANYTIME I GET THE CHANCE!!!LORI

Animal Instinct, the best book I've ever read!

Def Leppard fans, you must purchase this book! It is by far the greatest book on this planet. It tells the complete story of Def Leppard, from their early days in a Sheffield spoon factory up to their fourth album, Hysteria. Author David Fricke has done an incredible job writing this book. It is clearly written and very informative. The photos, courtesy of Ross Halfin, are amazing. Once you pick this book up, you will not want to put it down. Your Def Leppard collection is not complete without Animal Instinct!!!

Excellent

By far, the best comprehensive book on Def Leppard! A must have for fans! I purchased the book approximately nine or ten years ago, and I love to look at it still!

Animal Instinct - The Best Rock Book Ever!

Animal Instinct is the best rock book I've ever read. It's filled with great photography courtesy of Ross Halfin, and the author, David Fricke of Rolling Stone Magazine, has done a superb writing job. Not only has he done exhaustive research, but he's injected the tragedy-ridden story of this band with healthy doses of good humor throughout. I've read this book over and over again, and it's still entertaining. The chapter on "The Terror Twins" (who are, of course, Steve Clark and Phil Collen) is absolutely hilarious. And Mr. Fricke's way with words in describing the birth of Def Leppard, the recording of Pyromania, Rick Allen's accident, the band's struggles to record Hysteria both with and without Mutt Lange, and everything in between, leaves you feeling as if you've lived through it along with them. There are other Def Leppard biographies, but there's not one to compare with Animal Instinct. If you're a Def Leppard fan and have not read this book, beg, borrow (but please don't steal my copy) or buy it for yourself. You must read it! And if you're not a Def Leppard fan, beware - once you read this book, you will be! - Laurie Compton
