Thebook covers the full fifty-year history of the Beach Boys' music, fromessays on some of the group's best-known music-such as their hitsingle "Good Vibrations"-to their mythical unfinished masterpiece,Smile. Throughout, the book places special focus on the individualwhose creative vision brought the whole enterprise to life, Brian Wilson,advancing our understanding of his gifts as a songwriter, arranger, andproducer.
