Having always believed that Harry N had taken his own life I was so sad to learn of his illnesses and prolonged demise at such a young age. I was not steeped in his music but the few things I knew and his animated film 'The Point' intrigued me. As a Beatle devotee I had also not realised how he was so intimately untwined with all of them. How sad life is that these innovators have such short lives (McCartney apart who is by now one of the grandaddy's of Rock because he survived everyone through - I suppose - moderation.
A great read i.e. listen,as I don't read these things anymore as I like the narration).

If you are looking for a detailed description of the music industry than this is the book for you. All I wanted was the personal life story of Harry Nilsson. I was never a big fan but truly admired his voice and writing ability and was interested in finding out more about the man himself. This book was long for me and to full of name dropping, gossip and "who's who" for my taste. I did finish the book and enjoyed most of it but honestly I wanted it to end long before it did. So unless you have an interest in the music industry I would't recommend it. But if the industry and name dropping is you thing, go for it.
A wonderful surprise to see an audio book on Harry Nilsson. Spotted, downloaded and playing in minutes. A unique artist and a great overview of his life. As each album was discussed I was streaming the music which a wonderful accompaniment to the narration.
