I honestly have to say that, if you by any chance is into Pretty Maids or our 40 years history, this book is Must Have.
Ozzie Adenborg has done a fantastic job with this book, and if you don’t like reading too much, there is 1300 pictures in it, so no excuse!
The story of Ken Hammer and Ronnie Atkins begins with a cigarette at a Thin Lizzy concert, 40 years later the band has changed line-up several times, released 16 studio albums not counting the EPs, live albums and best of... Pretty Maids stands firmly with one foot in the metal genre and the other in the melodic zone, but what is making them unique is their ability to still make interesting music.
Dave Reynolds, Rock Candy
"A glorious and recently published coffee table book - officially authorised too - written by Ozzie Adenborg, that I can't recommend enough. It's frankly excellent."
This Pretty Maids book is definitely red, hot and heavy!!!! One of the best books released this year.....highly recommended!
Dave Ling, Classic Rock Magazine
"For a fan, this is Pretty much essential.
Adenborg's 374-page tome weighs almost as much as a baby elephant, and she covers her subject with the authority and passion of a super-fan, dissecting with great detail their 16 studioalbums with the aid of exhaustive cronoloy, vintage interviews, press cuttings and set-lists."

”This is the dream book every fan would want to have about their favoriteband. EVERYTHING is there: concerts, records, photos and interviews with every musician playing in the Danish hard rock band Pretty Maids. Not just the success, but also the setbacks.”
Ole Alvor, Metalized
I have read a few books about music, specially from the heavy department, over the years, but the caress and love for Pretty Maids that Ozzie describes is unique. And when you self have followed the band since the early start it is a joy to both read the many pages and look at the photos that are a big part of the book. This heavy piece can be used as a manual, dictionary or encyclopaedia as it has a a lot of work done to be filled with information and good stories with the band.
Nothing is left to coincidence with this piece, I can not enough praise this, to the top of the skies and back again, and huge respect to Ozzie who has made a masterpiece that everyone who has the interest for this kind of work should have and own."
