Publisher's Summary

Michael Nesmith's eclectic, electric life spans his star-making role on The Monkees, his invention of the music video, and his critical contributions to movies, comedy, and the world of virtual reality. Above all, his is a seeker's story, a pilgrimage in search of a set of principles to live by. That search took Nesmith from a childhood in Dallas, where his single mother, Bette, invented Liquid Paper, to the set of The Monkees in Los Angeles, to the heart of swinging London with John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix, and to an unexpected oasis of brilliance in the Santa Fe desert, where his friendships with Douglas Adams and Los Alamos scientists would point him toward the power of the infinite and the endless possibilities of human connection.

This funny, thoughtful, self-aware book is a window onto an unexpected life, inflected at every turn by the surprising candor and absurdist humor of an American original. Listening to Infinite Tuesday is like stepping into the world of Michael Nesmith, where something curious is always unfolding, and where riffs on everything from bands to dogs to the nature of reality make for an endlessly engaging journey.

What the Critics Say

"This selectively revealing, insightful memoir casts the cerebral Monkee as a spiritual seeker and self-deprecating visionary. Popular culture has barely revealed the tip of the iceberg that is Nesmith.... A book - and a life - unlike any other in rock." (Kirkus)

"Nesmith may be most remembered for his role as the stoic guitarist in The Monkees, but his brilliant, candid, and humorous new autobiographical musings give readers a much clearer picture of his originality and inventiveness.... Nesmith's entertaining memoir reveals his creative genius, his canny ability never to take himself too seriously, and his restless questions about the value of spirituality." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Michael, thank you for sharing :-)"

    As a youngster back in the 60s I was one who thoroughly was enthralled by The Monkees, each and every one of them. That section of the book was so interesting to walk through. Hearing the back experiences brought back great memories of the time. The rest of the book was also quite interesting and provided an vivid understanding of the perseverance, insight and the synchronicities of Mr Nesmith's life.

    Story
    "Incredibly Poetic"

    While I have liked just a tiny bit more writing on The Monkees (there is none on the three other guys as people) the rest of Nez’s life is fascinating and told with an incredibly lyrical and poetic style.

    Story
    "Entertaining and Eccentric"

    I must admit to already being partial to Mike Nesmith as I was a rabid lifelong fan of the Monkees. The concept listening to Mike narrate his own book was very appealing. He kind of jumps around on his timeline the first half of the book, and felt this to be a little sloppy. Once Mike gets past his Monkees chapter, there is a new tone, with a much clearer and compelling narrative. He becomes brutally honest regarding his infidelities and divorces, and his anecdotes of his spiritual awakening was very touching and sounded genuine.

    "Very Interesting."

    Very interesting autobiography and kept me listening. Kind of disappointed in the ending, like there should of been more. Ended abruptly, but maybe that's for the next book.
