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.
