This is a good listen for a long drive or a day spent in the garden. Undemanding and fun - an excellent story with lots of little details that hold your attention. Ripley lived a great life, full of adventure, fun and self-indulgence - much to be admired if perhaps not emulated. Also a reflection on a bygone time, when the world was far from fully connected and full of many different and fascinating cultures.
Loved it. I learned a lot about rock 'n roll and I learned a lot about life. Worth listening to twice. Ranks up there with the recent Beatles biography and the Keith Richards autobiography.
Guy Spier is very generous with his experiences and ideas. Take what suits you from this story and use it to improve your state of mind and life.
I highly recommend this fine book. As the child of a messy divorce and the even messier aftermath, I was re-assured and gained personal confidence and insight from the life-stories described sensitively within.
