Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements, $18

Bob Mehr's book about the Replacements - done entirely with the band's cooperation - is the most comprehensive and enthralling rock bio you'll read this year (or maybe this decade). Come for the tales of Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson pranking label reps and lighting their per diems on fire; stay for founding guitarist Bob Stinson's tragic story (the heart of the book).
