"The satirical singer/songwriter 'Weird Al' Yankovic and his entourage goof up a storm in this album of behind-the-scenes photographs. The sense of exuberant creativity and fun that comes through in these photos will appeal to Yankovic’s many fans."Kirkus Reviews

“The last several decades have been an amazing ride. More than once―an annoying number of times, actually―Jon has warned me, ‘Someday I’m going to write a book about all this!’ It became a bit of a running joke. But now he’s actually made good on the threat. It’s a fine snapshot―actually, several hundred snapshots―of what life was like for us in the ‘80s."―"Weird Al" Yankovic

"Weird Al’s drummer takes you into the studio, backstage, and offstage for the making of a superstar. Hey, I was there too―but Bermuda brought his camera!"―Dr. Demento

"True to its name, this book features an almost entirely unseen trove of monochromatic photos taken by Schwartz – all capturing Al, his band and collaborators in the studio, on the road and in production of some of the funniest videos of MTV’s golden age."The Second Disc

"Black & White & Weird All Over documents Yankovic’s rise in comedy fame since the 1980s, capturing all the effort and fun behind his Grammy-winning music."The Plain Dealer

Black & White & Weird All Over finds the quiet humanity and vulnerability behind all the zaniness. A fascinating, revelatory coffee table book.―Nathan Rabin, Weird Al: The Book + The Weird Accordian to Al
