A . . . comprehensive guide to the evolution of DIY culture as we know it today.Bookslut.com
This exploration of lo-fi culture traces the origin of the DIY ethic to the skiffle movement of the 1950s, mail art, Black Mountain poetry, and avant-garde art in the 1950s. It follows the punk scene of the 1970s and 1980s to the current music scene. It charts the development of music outside of the publicity machine and examines the politics behind the production of homemade recordings and publications.

With that said, I would recommend this book only to younger readers (let's say mid to late teens) who are already engaged and inspired by DIY, but not all that familiar with (some of) its roots.
Like I said, the information was neat, but the analysis was bare bones, and mostly made huge assumptions in the reader's familiarity with the subject matter. I very much enjoyed learning all the historical details I never knew before, like that sci-fi fans wrote the first real zines in the 1930s. But when it came to the more modern stuff, the eras I know more about, there was little in the way of new or exciting information. Thought-provoking analysis would have made up for this, but it just wasn't there.
I got this book on a recommendation from one of the feminist magazines I read, and I'm not terribly upset to have it in my collection. It'll make a good source to cite for clear historical info. Other than that, it's pretty lackluster.
She guides the reader through a lot of fascinating information, telling a story you can really get to grips with by putting everything in its cultural context.
It's riveting in a way that I never expected! And now that I've finished reading it, I do find myself looking at the world - the cultural world at least - in a new way.
If you're looking for basic information on DIY music and publishing, and don't mind the lack of a coherent flow, it's a great book. However, if you're looking for insight on the world of DIY, you won't find it here.
