    From the voice of a generation: the most highly anticipated autobiography of the year, and the story of a man who wanted The Who to be called The Hair; wanted to be a sculptor, a journalist, a dancer and a graphic designer; became a musician, composer, librettist, fiction writer, literary editor, sailor; drank too much and nearly died; detached from his body in an airplane, on LSD, and nearly died; planned to write his memoir when he was 21; and published this book at 67.

    Story

    I thought I knew most of the stories about and around The Who, I was wrong. Pete goes into some great depth about his struggles and interactions with his own personal struggles and the struggles with the band. He didn't seem to hold back, appears to be very honest. He wrote about things in depth that would have been easily trivialized. I appreciate his honesty and candid accounts of his life from his point of view. No sugar coating. I very much enjoyed this book. I would put this on par with Steve Jobs book. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys biographies. I am very glad he narrated the book. Wish more autobiography authors would do that. He seem to add some fake laughter at time that didn't really work for me but that is really nit picking.

    Tune In is the first volume of All These Years - a highly-anticipated, groundbreaking biographical trilogy by the world's leading Beatles historian. Mark Lewisohn uses his unprecedented archival access and hundreds of new interviews to construct the full story of the lives and work of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.

    I really like the first of the trilogy. Very in-depth, If not a Beatles fan to some degree you may not find this book as entertaining as I did.
    Hope the other two are released soon.

    Imagine how different your life would be if you could tell whether someone was lying or telling you the truth. Be it hiring a new employee, investing in a financial interest, speaking with your child about drugs, confronting your significant other about suspected infidelity, or even dating someone new, having the ability to unmask a lie can have far-reaching and even life-altering consequences. As former CIA officers, Philip Houston, Michael Floyd, and Susan Carnicero are among the world’s best at recognizing deceptive behavior.

    Very interesting. I have used the theories and they seem to work extremely well. You must give it full concentration while using the theories. I will listen over and over to grasp all the nuances that are taught in this book. I enjoyed this book very much. Well narrated.

    Phil Gordon plays poker with the best players in the world. He has won, and lost, in tournaments and cash games around the globe, all the while studying the game and learning from every hand dealt. It's a tough game. But anyone can become a winning player with the right amount of courage, patience, aggression, observation, and, perhaps most important, dedication to becoming a better player.

    Good information but short. Guess I need to get Phil's other two little books. Well written, easy to digest. Can't wait to put it to practice. Will need to listen a few more times I'm sure to get a good grasp of his theories of poker.

    Baba Booey! Baba Booey! It was a slip of the tongue - that unfortunately was heard by a few million listeners - but in that split second a nickname, a persona, a rallying cry, and a phenomenon was born. Some would say it was the moment Gary Dell’Abate, the long-suffering heroic producer of The Howard Stern Show, for better or worse, finally came into his own.

    Gary's life story was interesting. I could do without all the list but it's his book. Just the right length, could have got boring but never did. Any Howard Stern fan this is a must read. If Howard Stern is not your style you might not really get this book. It is like reading about a family member. I've been listening to Howard for 25 + years and Gary is a big part of that, if your not a listener not sure you would or could enjoy this as much as I did.
    I'm glad Gary did the narration. Once again if you are not a Stern show fan you may not like listening to Gary and his speech impediment. Right Boff??

    Robert Hilburn’s storied career as a rock critic has allowed him a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of some of the most iconic figures of our time. He was the only music critic to visit Folsom Prison with Johnny Cash. He met John Lennon during his "lost weekend" period in Los Angeles, and they became friends. Bob Dylan granted him his only interviews during his "born again" period and the occasion of his 50th birthday. Michael Jackson invited Hilburn to watch cartoons with him in his bedroom....

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Amazing book, never got bored. An incredible man who put a major mark on all of our lives if you know it or not. Although flawed, Steve Jobs always seem to somehow make his flaws a positive. Incredible life journey. Very honest book, didn't feel the author filtered anything negative about Steve. All accounts of his life good and bad were written about. Maybe my favorite bio I've listened to so far. Narration by Dylan Baker spot on.

    As the lead singer of the Doors, Jim Morrison's searing poetic vision and voracious appetite for sexual, spiritual, and psychedelic experience inflamed the spirit and psyche of a generation. Since his mysterious death in 1971, millions more fans from a new generation have embraced his legacy, as layers of myth have gathered to enshroud the life, career, and true character of the man who was James Douglas Morrison.

    Story

    I thought the book was a little drawn out but overall found it very interesting. A sad tale about a truly artistic man with one hell of a alcohol abuse problem. Great insight into a relatively short life. I learned a lot about Jim Morrison that I had not heard or I had speculated about through his writings. A must for any Doors fan but if the band wasn't of much interest to you this book may become boring.

    Eric Clapton is far more than a rock star. Like Dylan and McCartney, he is an icon and a living legend. He has sold tens of millions of records, played sell-out concerts all over the world, and been central to the significant musical developments of his era. His guitar playing has seen him hailed as "God". Now, for the first time, Eric tells the story of his personal and professional journeys in this pungent, witty, and painfully honest autobiography.

    Being a fan and somewhat a historian of Rock and Roll I enjoyed this book by Eric. It was a bit slow in parts but much of the struggle and triumph I found very interesting. I wished he would have dug a bit deeper into area's such as his and George Harrison's relationship but being as private a man as he seems to be I'll take what I can get.

    James Hetfield, with whom many years ago Mustaine founded a band known as Metallica, once observed, with some incredulity, that Mustaine must have been born with a horseshoe up his ass. That's how lucky he's been, how fortunate he is to be pulling breath after so many close calls. And Hetfield is right. Mustaine has been lucky. He has been blessed. But here's the thing about having a horseshoe lodged in your rectum: It also hurts like hell. And you never forget it's there.

    Enjoyable listen, Dave wrote from his heart and seem to try and make amends with some of the mistakes he has made through his life. I have a lot more respect for him than ever before, always heard the whining stories without his side really. He is quiet inspiring with the adversity he has been faced with and come out in the end on top. I listen to his music with a whole new found respect and insight.
    I am a atheist and at first listen thought Dave might be the same. Guess he has found something in his life that helps him through without jamming J.C down your throat. Much respect with his stance on religion. Seems to have grown up to be quiet a man.
