TVD Book Giveaway: Joel Freimark’s
The Music Obsessive’s Guide to Life, Volume 1

Dudes, I just picked up this massive book by Joel Freimark (aka The Daily Guru on the internets) and have been geeking out, going through and reading about some of the greatest albums ever made.

It’s encyclopedic but insightful. It jumps around from genre to genre, yet has an inherent unifying thread. And the good news is we’ve got one for you.

Joel Freimark posts brilliant daily Youtube videos about music that he loves and stuff he wants to turn you on to under the moniker, The Daily Guru. Check them out by subscribing to his Youtube channel or follow him on Facebook or Twitter.

From the author: “At nearly 1,000 pages, The Music Obsessive’s Guide To Life: Volume 1 is a collection of extended essays on more than 350 of the most important albums in music history. Unlike other “best of” books, this is not one of those annoyingly pretentious works that is filled with obscure “insider” commentary and an over-abundance of “assumed knowledge.”

I have done my best to write these entries so that anyone who picks up the book can gain both a greater and wider appreciation for music in general. Running the gamut from ragtime to punk to jazz to hip-hop and everything between, musician Henry Rollins stated that the book, ‘…will not only make for great reading, but turn you onto music that will change your life and make it better.'”

The first edition of the book is limited to 347 copies, all of which will be signed and numbered by the author. Including the copy that we have for one of you now.

So, to enter to win Joel Freimark’s The Music Obsessive’s Guide To Life: Volume 1, just comment below with your favorite music-related book. U.S. entries only please. One winner will be chosen on Monday, August 27th.
