    Not the best biography I have ever read In fact, honestly, not really a biography at all If you re looking for a bio of Neil Young, this is not the book to read I found it incoherent, in the sense that it did not stick together I am not sure if this was the effect the author wanted to create, a lot of random mini stories thrown together If so, he succeeded If he was going for a biography, he failed He says at one point he didn t want a ghost writer I think it actually needed one, or perh Not the best biography I have ever read In fact, honestly, not really a biography at all If you re looking for a bio of Neil Young, this is not the book to read I found it incoherent, in the sense that it did not stick together I am not sure if this was the effect the author wanted to create, a lot of random mini stories thrown together If so, he succeeded If he was going for a biography, he failed He says at one point he didn t want a ghost writer I think it actually needed one, or perhaps a firm editorial hand I also felt there was way too much about Puretone, Neil s pet project to improve the quality of sound in distributed music a project with which I have a lot of sympathy I hat...

    Three stars by any rational measure but somehow I m giving it four anyway It rambles, repeats itself, bogs down in detail or flies over important stuff It s easy to say it needs an editor or a ghost writer but it wouldn t have been the same and might not have been better.Near the end Young reflects that he might have been a better person But throughout the book it s clear that for all his clashes and snap decisions, he has also spent time being a good person We see ...

    A very interesting book by Neil Young For one it is not really a memoir of sorts, butof an open ended series of short essays on the nature of getting old, some music, hardcore car culture, and an obsession with the sound quality of digital recordings and the nature of how music has been affected by technology All of it is interesting to me, because he s Neil Young.He repeats himself a tad much the book could use some extra editing in this regard but still, its nice to get inside h A very interesting book by Neil Young For one it is not really a ...

    I was given this book for Christmas and although I have been a big Neil young fan for decades I wasn t really optimistic that I would enjoy it But I really did I know that some people will find it rambling but I think it s a gem It s very personal and I got a real sense that Neil was trying to communicate something very complex, essential and yet dynamic in and everyday kind of way This ...

    You know that feeling of scurrying away to a secret place with someone s diaries in your hot little paws Err, okay maybe you don t This is how it felt to read through the wonderfully thick Waging Heavy Peace This is not a chronology of Neil Young in the way one might expect a rock memoir to be this is a collection of his musing on life, on his past, on his family, on his loves, and his relationship with drugs This is everything you want it to be I think I smiled while I read it litera You know that feeling of scurrying away to a secret place with someone s diaries in your hot little paws Err, okay maybe you don t This is how it felt to read through the wonderfully thick Waging Heavy Peace This is not a chronology of Neil Young in the way one might expect a...

    Disappointing Rambling and repetitive Too much car talk and not enough music talk It s too badchapters weren t like Ch 67 where Neil finally gives the reader an interesting glimpse into his songwriting process Unfortunately, this occurs at the end of the book.

    NEEEEEEEIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL This shit is classically exasperating, pure Neil Young Like a lot of his albums over the past 15 years one gets the feeling that it might have beenpowerful with a little reflection and editing in the process but that s not Neil s thing and the diamonds are still scattered around in a lot of rough here As some critics have noted it is interesting to see the writing and flow get better as the book goes on Because it s basically unedit NEEEEEEEIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL This shit is classically exasperating, pure Neil Young Like a lot of his albums over...
