This book is a glimpse into the mind of Neil Young. He spoke into a microphone and gave us vignettes of his thoughts and important events in his life. He is passionate about cars, music, family, the environment, model trains, and more. He talks about his physical challenges and those of his children. He tells stories of the early days of Buffalo Springfield, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Crazy Horse and brings us into his present relationships with his fellow artists and other friends. He goes from topic to other topics and then back again. It sounds crazy, but it works. I love Neil's music, even the Shocking Pinks and Trans era stuff. He is an artist, not just a performer and this book reflects that. He is sometimes thought of as a liberal because of his anti-war songs and environmental stance. But he talks about how he dislikes stereotyping of individuals and has a more nuanced and gracious view of people with different perspectives.
Keith Carradine has an expressive voice and does an outstanding job narrating this book. Even if you have not been a Neil Young fan you will probably enjoy this book. It is an delightful listen.
