Kelly Fisher Lowe (The Words And Music Of Frank Zappa, p 239):

Dominique Chevalier's Viva! Zappa is an interesting book written by a fan who has some good information on various band members and breakdowns and minireviews of each album. It is a very subjective work but one that approaches Zappa from a necessary European perspective due to his enormous popularity there.

American Music Resource:

A thin paperback, this book is designed with eclecticism in mind, mimicing that of Zappa. Chevalier is a Zappa-tista who chronicles his life from many different perspectives, including a short biography and a review of his albums. This book includes many pictures of Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, as well as album covers and other interesting visualizations.
