In Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die, Willie Nelson muses about his greatest influences and the things that are most important to him, and celebrates the family, friends, and colleagues who have blessed his remarkable journey. Willie riffs on everything, from music to poker, Texas to Nashville, and more. He shares the outlaw wisdom he has acquired over the course of eight decades, along with favorite jokes and insights from family, bandmates, and close friends.
A road journal written in Willie Nelson's inimitable, homespun voice and a fitting tribute to America's greatest traveling bard, Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die, introduced by another favorite son of Texas, Kinky Friedman, is a deeply personal look into the heart and soul of a unique man and one of the greatest artists of our time, a songwriter and performer whose legacy will endure for generations to come.

Do you want to hear Willie talk about what's on TV? Or random sayings like, live in the now? Or do you want to hear twenty other people that you don't know, write about Willie? This isn't an Autobiography or Tales from the road. It is just randomness.... Do you want to hear his lyrics from songs? Or him repeat the same things over again in diff. chapters? Willie needs to fire his editor and stick to music.
Anything but this. I struggled to finish it.
The narration is fine, it's the subject matter and writer that were terrible.
I would cut about 90% of it. I would keep his past and tales from the road, this would amount to about two chapters.
Don't buy this book... if you are curious, go rent it from the library.

It would have been better if it had included stories from Willie's life on the road.
I thought this was going to be a story about Willie's life. Instead it's just a series of ramblings from the last year including jokes and pointless musings on buttermilk to plugs for XM Radio.
It might have been better if Willie read the story. I had to re-listen to numerous parts because I couldn't figure out who was speaking.
