Panoramsko iskustvo koje priča priču o Beastie Boysima, knjizi jedinstvenoj kao i sam bend — članova benda AD-ROCK i Mike D, uz doprinose Amy Poehler, Colson Whitehead, Spike Jonze, Wes Anderson, Luc Sante i još mnogo toga .

A panoramic experience that tells the story of Beastie Boys, a book as unique as the band itself—by band members AD-ROCK and Mike D, with contributions from Amy Poehler, Colson Whitehead, Spike Jonze, Wes Anderson, Luc Sante, and more.

Memoir, graphic novel, cookbook, photo-journal, love letter, elegy: this vast, unwieldy, marvellous book, narrated, like the band's songs, scatter-gun style by the two surviving Beastie Boys, is as original, uncategorisable and attention-grabbing as their music. ― SUNDAY TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR

Here is their story, told for the first time in the words of the band . With a style as distinctive and eclectic as a Beastie Boys album, Beastie Boys Book upends the typical music memoir … Our clear winner for Book of the Year. ― ROUGH TRADE BOOK OF THE YEAR

Wild, moving . . . resembles a Beastie Boys LP in its wild variety of styles ― ROLLING STONE BOOK OF THE YEAR

It's heaven and the photography is sensational. — LAUREN LAVERNE

One of the greatest music books ever published. In terms of quality, breadth, insight, Sincerity and pure archival value. Hot shit!! Grand Royal heaven. — MAX PORTER

The literary equivalent of the band‘s classic third album, Check Your Head: sprawling, eclectic, irreverent, clever, hyper and cool, driven by the engaging home-brewed DIY ethic which for over 30 years defined the trio's approach to creativity. ― UNCUT

Beastie Boys Book's triumph is to be everything an avid reader of Grand Royal Issue 2 might have hoped for … A picturesque lucky dip of rare authority. ― MOJO*****

As nutty, irreverent and fun as you think it would be ― VOGUE

I think I will add it to my list of favourite music books of all time. This list actually exists.


Just incredible, the whole thing, words, images, production. Might actually be perfect.


A fascinating, generous book with portraits and detail that float by in bursts of colour . . . As with [the band's] records, the book's structure is a lyrical three-man weave. . . . Diamond's voice is lapidary, droll. Horovitz comes on like a borscht belt comedian, but beneath that he is urgent, incredulous, kind of vulnerable. . . . Friendship is the book's subject as much as music, fame and New York ― NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

Wide-ranging and unorthodox … A compendium of photos, cartoons, recipes, annotated mixtape tracklistings and first-person storytelling from the two surviving band members, Adam Horovitz and Mike Diamond. They are both insightful about their group's shifting music and are expert yarn-spinners, homing in on telling vignettes rather than doling out a straightforward history: the saga of Bob Dylan attempting to co-opt the Beastie Boys into performing at a pro-smoking benefit show is particularly great. But the 2012 death of their bandmate Adam Yauch hangs over their story, so that even the book's most preposterous tales are shot through with yearning and melancholy. — Alexis Petridis ― GUARDIAN BOOK OF THE YEAR

Disrupts the typical music memoir to offer a panoramic experience as unique and invigorating as the band themselves. ― THE WIRE

Beastie Boys Book is possibly the funniest music memoir I've ever read, but it's also, ultimately, one of the most moving ― IRISH TIMES

That this book tells their story so well is not a surprise – Mike Diamond and Adam Horowitz have exceptionally keen recall – but how it tells it is amazing ― IRISH INDEPENDENT
