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.

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).

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.

HASH(0x93b5ccb4) out of 5 stars NOT ENOUGH DEPTH 13 Mar. 2015
By Alan Schneider - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Disappointed. Thought it would incorporate more autobiographical or biographical depth of the man and add a more personal view or discussion of lyrics- like the poetry they are-what they mean or could mean based on Mr. Cohen's life experience. I know when I hear Leonard Cohen's lyrics, I WANT to know what, where, and why he used THOSE words or phrases...while my mind conjures up images of a person in those situations. This seemed more a review of works ie acknowledging for many works, Mr. Cohen's favorite theme of love. I think that is a GIVEN....and relatively superficial. I do not think Mr. Ratcliff presented much of the mystique that is Leonard Cohen. Good title which is what motivated me to buy it....but no underlying content.

HASH(0x93d81eac) 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.

It's a short book, but contains the author's interpretation of each of Leonard Cohens songs. Great book and worth the price.
