Very interesting learning about Peter Gabriel in his youth days, also lots of cool pictures. Would recommend this book, especially to Gabriel fans out there.

Leaves much to be desired... 29 Nov 1998
By Houston Longino - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book to learn more about one of my favorite musicians. Instead, this book simply provides random quote after quote. I didn't learn anything from this book that I didn't know before, it provided very little insight into the artist himself. It was also very short (only 95 pages). Hardly enough to describe anything in detail. One plus though, were the photos. Seeing pictures of Peter Gabriel in concert was a great quality of the book. If you want a light read about a great musician, then this is the book for you. If you really want to learn something about the artist himself, look elsewhere.

When I bought this book, I thought it would be more of an autobiographical type of book. I was so disappointed to find out that all it is, is a compilation of quotes from Peter Gabriel over the years.
Yes, there were a few interesting facts to be found in it, but nothing that would really, truly give anyone a feeling that they finished the book knowing any more about this brilliant artist than they probably already knew... it simply stated a topic.. and then followed with a few pages of various quotes on that subject by Gabriel. Not what I expected by any means. Not worth the money in my opinion. You could probably get more info through Google or any other site like that. Don't waste your money on this.
"In His Words That Are Out Of Context"( Their Copy And Paste) 5 July 2013
By janine martini - Published on

I have never met Peter Gabriel. My observations and limited knowledge of how he relates to others and his definite reactions to social injustice make me think he is a good man. I saw Mr. Gabriel in concert 2 summers ago. He told a very intimate story about he and his dad practicing Yoga together. The position required them to embrace each other. Peter Gabriel told the audience he started to weep into his father's arms. He loved the feeling of being held by his Dad.(his Dad died 11/2012)

This book says nothing about Mr. Gabriel. They may be his words, but they are put together in a fashion that is meaningless.
The book consists of quotes from each of two hundred or more conversations Mr. Gabriel had with...."I don't know." How can this qualify as a book unless we can call it a "scrapbook."

The book is put together in a way that is convoluted. Perhaps what happened was that all of the pages were thrown up in the air at once and arranged by order they fell to the floor.

I felt sympathy for Mr. Gabriel after reading this book because many of the quotes make him sound like a selfish jerk. I do not think that he is a selfish jerk.
Peter Gabriel - the man himself 31 Jan 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
In this book, Peter Gabriel talks about everything from his childhood experiences, musical influences, the inspirations for his music and gives the meanings to his music and songs. An all-round excellent book for those interested in music, world music, and musical advances or even the man himself
