- Did Bon actually write songs on Back in Black? What really happened on the morning of his death? The book answers these questions and more, exploring Bon’s potential solo career, sensational details about his love life, and a look into the rigors of life on the road.

- Features a previously unpublished audio interview with Bon himself, a trove of unseen photographs, and in-depth interviews with such rock legends as Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones and Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony.

- Jesse Fink’s latest book, The Youngs: The Brothers who Built AC/DC, was an international bestseller translated into nine languages. It received a 4-star review in Rolling Stone, and AC/DC bassist Mark Evans called it “the best book I’ve ever read about AC/DC.”
