Presented in much the same fashion as Nick Mason's Pink Floyd book, Inside Out, this is a detailed and definitive autobiography of Genesis as constructed by the members themselves. All the band musicians participated in the creation of this beautifully appointed history. There are hundreds of photographs culled from the bands' private archives, as well as insightful revelations that only these five players are privy to.

Chapter and Verse details the group's three-decade long career and covers their 30 album releases. Each member tells his story in his own words, stories that include the arrival and departure of singer Peter Gabriel, guitarist Steve Hackett, and drummer/singer Phil Collins (or more accurately, his arrival/departure/arrival).

Included among the recollections and revelations of the band itself are auxiliary interviews with musical sidemen, managers, friends and producers. It is a remarkable collection of tales and graphics where truths are told, lies explained, and histories interpreted.

The early photos of Phil Collins with hair alone are worth the price tag. If you've listened to their music, you need to read this to understand what you've been hearing.

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Steven Rosen, 2007
