Yngwie Malmsteen's revolutionary guitar style - combining elements of classical music with the speed and volume of heavy metal - made him a staple of the 80s rock scene. Decades later, he's still a legend among guitarists, having sold 11 million albums and influenced generations of rockers since. In Relentless, Malmsteen shares his personal story, from the moment he burst onto the scene seemingly out of nowhere in the early 80s to become a household name in the annals of heavy metal.

I listened to the whole book in just 2 days (neglecting a lot of school work to pull it off). I just couldn't put it down. The book gives an insight into the mind of Yngwie and his life in Sweden that ultimately shaped him into the guitar maestro that he is.
