5.0 out of 5 stars Really helpful, 11 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Full of great tips. Complements many of the other Uke books and worth getting if you are a beginner in particular.

Worth a read if you are interested in a bit of history around the Uke. Note that this is not a full history and does not claim to be either but still full of great little snippets.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you don't get this book it is because you don't get the guy - don't bleat, just move on., 31 Dec 2012
If you are the sort of person who spends time trying to analyse what Neil Young songs mean to Neil Young then this book is not for you. If you are the sort of person who goes to Neil Young concerts and shouts out song suggestions during the set, then this book is not for you. If you are the sort of person who goes to Neil Young concerts and spends half the gig at the bar, this book is not for you. If you like to live you life through the equivalent of painting by numbers, this book is not for you. However, please buy it as you will be supporting some worthy projects.

If you spend your time thinking about what Neil Young songs mean to you, then you may enjoy this book. I think that this book tells you an awful lot about the author and those that cannot see this really do not get the man - and there is no real shame in that, it is not a crime. Writing a crap review based on lack of understanding may well be a crime though.

I think that this book makes an excellent companion to the "unauthorised" biography - Shakey. If you did not enjoy this book and have not read that then maybe you should give it ago and come back to this book.

Shoeless Joe and Ragtime Baseball
Shoeless Joe and Ragtime Baseball
by Harvey Frommer
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars A little disapointing, 9 Oct 2008
I would have to agree that the hype on the back suggests a more in-depth analysis than is presented. There are odd snippits of information that would possibly be of interest to a baseball nut but even then, I suspect there would be nothing new for somebody in that category. I think that "Shoeless, The life and times of Joe Jackson" by David L Fleitz is a more balanced analysis although some of the earlier chapters seem to repeat points already made - a bit like watching some discovery channel documentaries (very annoying for a Brit!).
