    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. 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.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Waging Heavy Peace the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What does Keith Carradine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It surprised me and delighted me.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Neil Young for being the eternal entertainer with something solid to say.

    From core principles to proven tricks, Getting Things Done has the potential to transform the way you work - and the way you experience work. At any level of implementation, David Allen's entertaining and thought-provoking advice shows you how to pick up the pace without wearing yourself down.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If they were a nerd about these things like me I would. So many good ideas and thoughts in this book.


    What other book might you compare Getting Things Done to and why?

    There is nothing else equal to it :)


    What does David Allen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like his voice, a good voice on an audio book is so important to wether I buy it or not. I like then when he is talking in the first person its really him so it has more meaning.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    'Why are you watching this movie... go a get things done!'


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a favourite and I go back to it all the time, I love that you can jump into any part of it and get really good ideas and inspiring thoughts. Seriously having my own business which I run from home - this book changed my life!

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Untethered Soul to be better than the print version?

    I run my own business so actual book reading is quite a luxury and one I rarely have time for... I drive quite a bit so thats where I do my best listening to audio books... as I find driving a little boring my audio books make it a pleasure...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    hehe I think regarding this book... um me :)


    Which character ??? as performed by Peter Berkrot ??? was your favorite?

    there were no characters but Peter Berkrot is a great narrator!


    What insight do you think you???ll apply from The Untethered Soul?

    oh gosh too many to list... and Im still listening so Im sure there will be more...


    Any additional comments?

    this was one of those perfect timing books, not sure why I even bought it... purely on the snippet and liking the narrators voice (that is really important to me)... it is an artform and not everyone can do it.

    This is one of my all time favorite audios so far... and I listen to a lot of them. A great start to 2012!
