Having been a Who fan for years I thought I knew all there was to know about Pete. This book was riveting and was written in such an introspective way that you got a real picture of Pete and his life. Really graphical in all areas, both personal and public and shows what an artistic genius Pete is. Highlights for me were numerous but understanding how Tommy was created and how he continued to tackle his inner demons were particularly poingnant. Not all rock'n roll but a complete reflection of his life to datel. Really enjoyed this book and how Pete narrated it. Nice to hear to author laughing to himself recounting an early part of his like.

Mr Townsend reads with many an ironic chuckle, a warming habit that gives a well written tome about a life so convoluted in depth, historic creation and personal torture and redemption the touch of human candour that underlines nicely the courageous and often unflattering revelation that gives this book, and it's audio rendering its depth and grip.
It's a significant and thorough examination of the life, and more relevantly, the mind and its machinations of one of the great creators and musicians to lead and emerge from the 60's Renaissance in pop music.
