Publisher's Summary

Whether navigating the backroads of Louisiana or Thuringia, exploring the snowy Quebec woods, or performing onstage at Rush concerts, Neil Peart has stories to tell. His first volume in this series, Far and Away, combined words and images to form an intimate, insightful narrative that won many fans. Now Far and Near brings together reflections from another three years of an artist's life as he celebrates seasons, landscapes, and characters; travels roads and trails; receives honors; climbs mountains; and composes and performs music. With passionate insight, wry humor, and an adventurous spirit, once again Peart offers a collection of open letters that take listeners on the road, behind the scenes, and into the inner workings of an ever-inquisitive mind. These popular stories, originally posted on Peart's website, are now collected and contextualized with an introduction and conclusion.

Inspiring in a lot of ways

my wife hates Neil Peart because he "inspired" me to buy a motorcycle again after many years without. These books make me feel alive and I hope he writes 100 more before I die.

Entertaining but need pictures!

As expensive as audiobooks are you would think that you would get a companion eBook with pictures for free. The entire book refers to photographs which you can't see if you do not pay $13.00 for the companion book. If it wasn't for how enjoyable the narrator was I'd just get the print version.

Smooth Flowing. Very similar to Far and Away

The story flowed smoothly and once again Brian Sutherland did a excellent job.

Although, if you've read/listened to Far and Away you can expect almost the same story being told.

Ghost Rider is still the best.

Not my Favorite but I liked it.

Not my favorite book of his thus far, but I did enjoy it very much. By no means a bad book, but just compared to some other the others.
