From the voice of a generation: the most highly anticipated autobiography of the year, and the story of a man who wanted The Who to be called The Hair; wanted to be a sculptor, a journalist, a dancer and a graphic designer; became a musician, composer, librettist, fiction writer, literary editor, sailor; drank too much and nearly died; detached from his body in an airplane, on LSD, and nearly died; planned to write his memoir when he was 21; and published this book at 67.

This is the single best example of what an audio book should be. It is more than just a narration. This audio book is an honest and detailed account of the author's life, and read, by the author, with a delivery that is so natural, you will think he has gone of the page and is just having a casual conversation with you.

Pete is no stranger to the craft of literary writing, and the flow of the book flows very natural. The book is funny, dark, and brutally honest.

It is probably my absolute favorite audio book. I've listened to it too many times to count.

Fleetwood Mac's classic 1977 Rumours album topped the Billboard 200 for 31 weeks and won the Album of the Year Grammy. More recently, Rolling Stone named it the 25th greatest album of all time and the hit TV series Glee devoted an entire episode to songs from Rumours, introducing it to a new generation. Now, for the first time, Ken Caillat, the album's co-producer, tells the full story of what really went into making Rumours.

This book is exactly what it says it is - a look into the making of an album, from a producer's perspective. I will admit, this is not for the average fan. If you're looking for a story all about Fleetwood Mac, you won't find it here! That's not what this book is about. This is about how Fleetwood Mac made a classic album, and should be in the library of every major and indie artist/producer/engineer who makes records.

As an indie artist myself, you have to learn all aspects of the behind-the-scenes magic that goes on with making a record, and trust me, to the average fan, you may not know who the author is, but he is a VERY respected and notable figured in the industry. If you're into recording and engineering, this book is for you! I personally wanted more technical details about the record and gear that was used, but Ken put enough in this book, and did a brilliant job in explaining the tools of the trade so that anyone could understand.
