LibraryJournal.com has up a preview of Pearl Jam Twenty, the new Pearl Jam book written by the band and Cameron Crowe.

Pearl Jam. Pearl Jam Twenty. S. & S. Sept. 2011. 256p. ISBN 9781439169216. $35.
Pearl Jam started back in 1991 with the album Ten, which sold 13 million copies; its latest, 2009’s self-released Backspacer, debuted in Billboard’s top slot. So, yeah, not just history; Pearl Jam continues to define alternative rock. Academy Award–winning director Cameron Crowe is even doing a Pearl Jam film—a coup, because this band would rather play than posture. The book features anecdotes, memorabilia, photos, tour notes, and drawing, giving a sort of there-at-the-creation feel, and Crowe does the intro. Look for the book and the film around the same time; should be big.
