Offers a retrospective evaluation of Led Zeppelin's story, an analysis of the band's nine albums, and replicas of band memorabilia.

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of Zeppelin’s first album release, Led Zeppelin offers generations of fans a critical, retrospective re-evaluation of the band’s mystery-enshrouded saga, as told by New York Times bestselling biographer Charles R. Cross. Cross, the author of Heavier Than Heaven: The Biography of Kurt Cobain, analyzes each of Zeppelin’s nine albums, arguing that the Gods of Rock sold millions because of the intricate musical depth that they brought to so many genres—not just the thudding, metal aspect of their sound.

If you're hoping to listen to the accompanying CD while flipping through the book, just know that it does NOT contain songs, just them talking/interview.
