In between the inconspicuous covers, Ray gets down to telling you all his life secrets, his lovers and most of all his passion for his music. Ray conjures up a romantic history of the girls he has loved and the mothers he has lost.
The book will lead you from his early days in a run down area of Florida, through the losing of his sight and the tragic death in his family. He doesn't look back with anger or shame, he just tells it as it is.
The most interesting time in the book is when Ray describes how he toured the US looking for work, and how he met some of his Idols of the time. You get a real sense of pain and pleasure as he was working with the great musicians, and missing his family at the same time.
One thing is for sure, you won't want to put the book down once you have started reading it.
The right thing to a real Ray fan, or also to a beginner - will make to love him even more. :)
