I felt that i really comprehended and visualized the entire auto-biography. However, It was a really enjoyable listen, and i feel the lessons and experiences will have newfound effects on me as I age and grow over time.
I liked how real David is. He says it like it is. He doesn't try to sugar coat or make things a big deal. He just tells you his story the way he remembers it.
When I first started reading the book a couple years ago, I completely stopped after one of the 1st few chapters. The chapter referenced David's ability to have Perfect Pitch. He could hear a note on the piano and know exactly what it was.
After reading that, i vowed to learn perfect pitch and start reading again once i've figured it out.
I haven't mastered perfect pitch yet, but I did come up with a new device that can train perfect pitch, and now i just need to prototype it.
After coming up with the idea for "Pitch Blocks", I listened to the book from start to finish in just a couple sittings. It gave me all the inspiration i needed to finish building my concept and start training myself to have perfect pitch.
