A handbook for Progressive Rock (Version 1.2.1). “My new book could be the perfect guide for girlfriends, wives, or friends of any progressive rock enthusiast... it's not mainly for the prog rock expert, but rather people whose curiosity is piqued by this “genre” and who have never examined it further, thinking that it was “complicated stuff”. With my guide I try to give the reader a possible way of interpreting this genre. Hence the subtitle “A handbook” instead of “THE handbook”. Of course, the book is also for the normal “audience” of prog rock, those hardcore aficionados”. Stefano Orlando Puracchio presents his book Progressive Rock. A handbook with clarity and irony. It's a kind of introduction to this phenomenon which provides a clear point of view, and open mind to new interpretations, given by some of the “genre's” main players, especially Italian and English musicians.
