Known as "music's biggest fan", John Book has been a journalist for 26 years, with his works being found in "All Music Guide", "The Rocket", and "DiscRespect". He is the founder of one of the first fan-based hip-hop internet mailing lists (U-WU), and is currently a contributor to the Reviews section at Okayplayer. Book is an active record collector with a permanent vinyl itch which breeds curiosity about sounds unheard. He also created thisisbooksmusic.com
, his online home of all that lurks in his mind, music or otherwise.
