Probably the best Brian Wilson biography despite the author going into excruciating detail over every note of every song Wilson ever wrote, listened to, or was in the same county as when it was played or hummed. Not much of an exaggeration actually.
But what really drags this audio book down even more is Balki's droning performance. Who selects him to read a book? If this passes for a professional performance then I am in the wrong business. Put some inflection in your voice man!

This is a awesome story of Brian and the Beach Boys, there was some much info that I never had heard before.

The rock'n'roll Icarus parable re-told wonderfully, enough to drive you back to Brian's work with fresh eyes. Highly recommended.
This is written by a master of his craft. The narrator could not be better.
Overall, the best audio book about music that I have ever read/heard. And I'm old!
If you're a fan of the beach boys' musical achievements- and those of Brian Wilson in particular - then this is for you. Highly detailed essay on their musical ups and downs. But I was after more on the human story, the family and Brian's personal history and this didn't go too far down that path.
Comprehensive but not personal enough. Saying that, I'd listen to Bronson Pinchot read a shopping list. He's king of Audible.
