I absolutely adored Rob Sheffield's first book Love is a Mix Tape.  So I instantly added Talking to Girls About Duran Duran to my to-read list.  Given the subject matter, I should have thought twice,

My generation came to age in the 90's.  I spent my teen years listening to Pearl Jam, Nirvana, 4 Non Blondes, etc.  The 80's belonged to my older siblings.

So a memoir about growing up in the 80's and listening to the music of the decade is not my thing.  I did find his tales of growing up in a big family touching, but I couldn't relate to the music love.  Just not my cup of tea.  3/10.
