Satisfied readers:

An outstanding achievement. TheZeppelin Knebworth saga is finally immortalized in the form of this beautiful book, a craft of knowledge, passion and dedication. This is how the legend lives on…Hiroshi.

I can’t put this book down. The muse, the photos, the fan’s stories and the layout exceeded my every expectation. Every page is optimized. My advise to any Zep fan who has not purchased this breakthrough piece of work is to “Bring It On Home”! Wools.

Then As It Was undoubtedly contains a comprehensive perspective unavailable anywhere else of Led Zeppelin’s final concerts on British soil and their last ever large scale concerts. The book is an absolute triumph. Michael Rae.

Wow. First glance it's amazing...one for the ages. Another perfect portrait of England and Led Zeppelin, the culture, the back stories as Dave’s personal intimacy, passion and love drips from every page and pixel. Paul Macfarlane.

Another masterful book. It provides a wonderful insight from the fans who attended these last magical UK shows. The book is truly a thrilling read with so many interesting photos and stories.. May I please pass on my thanks and congratulations to all who took time and contributed. The Bootleg / Memorabilia and In Through singles and albums add a wonderful finishing touch. All in all another triumph! Cliff Hilliard

What can I say about the book to do it justice.The colour images are just overwhelming. It is indeed like being back there. Loved the first book, but this is just taking things to 11. A unique event in rock history and, I think as time has gone on, maybe one of the top five dates anywhere ever, including Woodstock and Isle of Wight and Bath. As Bonzo has shown us so often, timing is everything. Thanks for the time machine. Chris Wright
