The undisputed king of pop-culture parody, "Weird Al" Yankovic has sold more comedy recordings than any other artist in history, receiving three Grammy Awards (and 14 nominations) in the process. The man behind classics such as "Eat It," "Amish Paradise," and "White & Nerdy" performed in more than 100 cities throughout North America, Europe, and Australia in support of his latest (and, to date, highest-charting) album, Alpocalypse . At last the time has come for a comprehensive illustrated tribute to this icon of the American humor landscape. Covering more than three decades of hilarious songs, videos, concert performances, and his life story in words and pictures, and featuring an introduction, lists, tweets, and photo captions from Yankovic himself, Weird Al: The Book is the ultimate companion piece to an extraordinary career.

Praise for Weird Al: The Book :

"Part biography and part pop culture museum, Weird Al: The Book is a treat.... A gorgeous look at Yankovic's life."

This book is great! If you're a fan of Weird Al, you will want a copy of this book. The next time I get paid I'm going to go and get a copy of this book for myself.

The book is full of pictures of Al's personal life and career in both the past and present with biographical notes through the whole book. I certainly learned a lot from this book. Al has been my hero since 2003.
