A book about Madness by Madness. The boys from North London each recall their own personal journey from childhood to becoming a member of one the UK's most successful singles bands of the eighties. Along the way there is plenty of skulduggery and tales of teenage delinquency all of which leave the reader contemplating what direction their lives would have taken if they hadn't found success with Madness. The 2 Tone Tour - which surely deserves a book of its own - is recalled with great humour and affection. How there weren't some serious casualties as a result of the antics on this tour is nothing short of a miracle.
