Anotace:

"To Air Is Human is the riotous tale of one man's journey through a world of wheelchair-bound Christian air rockers, spandex-jumpsuit fittings, Finnish stunt wolves, catatonic '80s guitar heroes, air groupies, Aireoke, Air Supply, dry-ice injuries, and ultimately, good vs. evil (in the form of Björn's rival pretender to the air guitar throne). But it is also a sincere and penetrating account of the pursuit of an elusive, intangible, and perhaps nonexistent goal: to achieve 'airness'--that is, when air guitar transcends the 'real' art that it imitates and becomes an art form in and of itself'--Back cover.
