UPDATED FOR 2017 WITH A NEW CHAPTER
The definitive history of Pink Floyd, one of the world's great bands, by founder member Nick Mason.
Pink Floyd is one of the most creative, successful and enduring bands of all time. As the only member to have been part of the band throughout the 50 years of its existence, and the first to write a personal take on their history, Nick Mason gives unique insights into Pink Floyd's highs and lows: from their emergence in the late 1960s underground, to the huge worldwide success of The Dark Side of the Moon and the rifts and pressures that developed within the group.
In a new chapter Nick Mason looks back at the years following the band's final performance at Live 8 in July 2005 and reflects on the huge changes that have occurred since: the irreplaceable losses, the new releases and the impact on the Floyd's continued success of both digital technology and social media. Intelligent, original and self-deprecating, Inside Out is the first-hand story of a band that has become a legend, as celebrated by the Victoria & Albert Museum's landmark Pink Floyd exhibition in 2017.

Where is the New Chapter?
As a Pink floyd fan since hearing the delights of Echoes pinging from my brothers bedroom in 1972, I purchased the hard back version not long after it was released and thoroughly enjoyed it. I recently wanted to re visit the book while on holiday but found the sumptuous hardback too bulky, so I checked out the e-book version. I was thrilled to discover that the version was updated for 2017, as highlighted on the e-book store where and when I purchased it.
I was particularly looking forward to Nick Masons latest thoughts on Syd Barretts withdrawal after reading a brief advertising article somewhere.
I have downloaded the book and flicked through it and to my disappointment, it very much appears to have the exact content of my precious hardback copy with no further reference than about 2010.
If you are a Pink Floyd fan and you haven’t read the original Inside out yet this is a must buy, but for me, the lack of an updated extra chapter, as advertised, has left me a feeling of being cheated!
