This unique musician has taken something from nothing and created his own special brand of music. His music is very funny, but it is also enjoyable to listen to.

at least it only cost me a buck and a half

first off way to spend 5 minutes self promoting yourself at the end of this. the story is not red with any excitement it's supposed to be about a comedy musician. if it's an audiobook you can play some audio from that musician in this case Weird Al Yankovic. this might add an extra hour to it but would give the reader a lot more enjoyment. I could Google this stuff for free. maybe somebody likes this kind of style but to me it's boring not exciting and not inspiring not entertaining not informing. a perfect read if I'm trying to fall asleep. now yes this was written by a multi-millionaire so my opinion probably means nothing 1 of all your books are like this how did you make your money?? again this is just my opinion but if you're looking for honest opinion there it is

Don’t Download This Book

I can appreciate a fan wanting to write a book about one of their heroes. Unfortunately, not every book can rise to the top. The writing style feels very much like a middle school report: not much color, some grammatical errors, and some incorrect information. In the second on Al’s latest album (as of this writing), there’s an opinion piece about the future of the music industry which could have been cut down. Also 4+ minutes are taken up cataloging the authors other short books.

The person reading it is clear and concise, but sounds like museum exhibit narration; very dry.

If you are looking for the bare facts (a few of which are incorrect) and are only willing to spend 40 minutes and less than $3, this might be your book. But there are better sources out there.
