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: "I felt that writing books fit me like a glove; I just started and I just kept going."
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. Candid, witty and revealing, this book takes its place beside the classic memoirs of Bob Dylan and Keith Richards.

I adore his music
There is no poetry in his biography
I understand he is now sober
It's a failure in sobriety
Probably the last speech
I hope not
Too much to cut
A great glimpse at the man and the musician
All the experiences he describes along the way
Neil Young's mind
The free ranging way he tells his tales is in keeping with who Neil Young is. He is an artist with lots of ideas!
Keith Carradine was a brilliant choice as narrator, he walked the walk right along with the author
When he speaks about his children, and the way he and his wife have come to understand the needs of their quadriplegic son, he reveals a well of empathy and compassion
A worthy visit through the winding mind of a real interesting guy
This book seems to be trying to induce an experience of what it's like to have ADD. I love Neil Young, but this is the worst editing ever, which is to say it was not edited. Bad decision. No quality control. The narrative has no cohesiveness whatsoever. It jumps from sentence to sentence to new topics and 40 year time frames without any rhyme, reason, direction or definition. sadly, I can not recomend this book.
what you get with this book - an oh so little taste of Neil's life but lots of sales pitches for his new inventions. don't waste your money. he's not that interesting
a mute person
anything about his stupid trains or his audio technology or his car engines
