This is a complete biography of Simon's artistic work. At times triumphant, at others heartbreaking. The author doesn't shy away from Simon's weaknesses, either. This book will be greatly appreciated by his fans.

Although an admirer of Simon's work for decades, I knew very little about him away from the microphone. Carlin's book is excellent and seems to be well researched. As a biography, it seems as good as most. It's not a gooey love story written by an adoring fan, but an open and honest portrayal of a man who of necessity is rarely open and honest. Catkin speaks music well when describing songs. As a music biography, it is better than most. Grupper's narration is superb. The only disappointment is no mention of Simon's appearance on The Rutles: All You Need Is Cash.
