An iconic figure in the history of rock and pop culture (inducted not once but twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame), Neil Young has written his eagerly awaited memoir: "I felt that writing books fit me like a glove; I just started and I just kept going."
Young offers a kaleidoscopic view of his personal life and musical career, spanning his time in bands like Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills & Nash and Crazy Horse; moving from the snows of Ontario through the LSD-laden boulevards of 1966 Los Angeles to the contemplative paradise of Hawaii today. Candid, witty and revealing, this book takes its place beside the classic memoirs of Bob Dylan and Keith Richards.

the ultimate entertainer...
You know, I was never a huge Neil fan of his music, I really liked it of course but not like some people I know, but I admired him, his longevity, his talent being undeniable, a few stories I've heard and we were just at a farm near his place. Somehow I became intrigued by him and when I read that he'd written a book I thought I'd check it out. Not sure what I was expecting but his take on music, music production, the state of music actually wowed me. Being a musician also I was so happy to hear what he was saying about all that. I was braced for a good story sure, but it is a great story and I'm so glad he put it all in writing. His life has been amazing, his mind behind the song writing and decisions he's made in his life so wonderful to discover. After listening to this book I now want to listen to all his music again, in a new way, like he's someone I know now, like I'd met him and really liked him and wanted to know all about his art. I feel this is the best autobiography I've ever read (listened to). How great that we have people in the music industry have something to say that is interesting, thoughtful, inspiring - people making art not just people who want fame and to make money. I do hope though that Neil makes money from this and all his ventures for himself and that he also does good things with it. I have a new warm heart for Neil Young.
Neil Young's take on music production. Talking about getting back to good music 'sound'. Inspiring. I also loved the way he spoke of his family, his father, his daughter with such love and respect. It made me research his daughter too also a wonderful artist.
I like Keith Carradine's voice. I liked that it felt respectful and was easy to listen to and not distracting from the story but felt more like Neil was speaking.
It surprised me and delighted me.
Thank you Neil Young for being the eternal entertainer with something solid to say.
Great book for Neil Young Fans
