The book is a fun listen, but I was not happy that unlike her other books, this one is not read by the author. The soundalike reader is ok, but misses some of Ann's wry inflection on certain topics.
This is a fine biography of Johnny Cash, narrated by Kris Kristopherson (nice touch). It presents an honest, balanced telling of Cash's life and music and even points out discrepencies between the first two Cash autobiographies. Cash himself chose Turner to do the book but died before the interviews were complete. Turner filled in the blanks by interviewing those who knew Cash well. My only criticism is that I wish this were not an abridged version. It makes the telling a bit choppy at times.
