A good read but some parts of the book didn't appeal
on 12 February 2014
On the whole, I enjoyed reading the book. Dave is clearly smarter than is given credit for. I particularly enjoyed his perceptive insights on his career and on dave mustaine. Without junior to balance out mustaine, megadeth wouldn't have achieved as much as they have. I also really enjoyed the tone of the book.
As I am not particularly religious, I found the latter sections, where daves religious beliefs take a more prominent role, a bit of a drag. I'm all for finding spiritually but I have to confess some of the latter sections didn't really resonate with me. I also found it fascinating to learn how maturity and life circumstances in general play a role in the evolution of a musician. Most interesting.
All in all, good job dave. You come across well and your passion for life and music are there for all to see.
