1.0 out of 5 stars A thin book full of nothing. A complete waste. 14 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of those really rare publications that will not widen your knowledge by a fraction. Basically it is a rewrite of the album info with some priceless "insights", like "this is the only recording on the album that is shorter then five minutes", or "after three slow ones this is a fast one". Written by a fan under a false name, this makes me wonder why a major publisher would have anything to do with it. LC deserves so much more than that (and he does get it finally from Sylvie Simmons).

1.0 out of 5 stars Leonard Cohen: The Music & the mistique 24 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Disappointing.
Time-line of albums.
Track by track listing of all Lenny's work with questionable comment/interpretation of each.
Probably O.K. for someone researching Leonard's work without any proir knowledge but not for the devotee.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Thorough and comprehensive. Made me have a look back at my earler albums. I'll hold on to this, even if it didn't tell me much I didn't already know.

5.0 out of 5 stars The legend at his best!! 25 Feb 2014
By V. Godfrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very interesting and informative biography of one of the best writers ever to come out of Canada. I have been a fan of this literary genius, ever since I read Selected poems, and I have every song he ever recorded. Leonard Cohen is one of a kind...and once he gets you under his spell, you are hooked for life. Truly a poetic and lyrical treasure. I highly recommend this book to fans and non-fans alike. You will not be disappointed.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Music and the Mystique 19 Feb 2013
By Belle Starr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's a short book, but contains the author's interpretation of each of Leonard Cohens songs. Great book and worth the price.
