Starting At Zero is the real deal. It's the first book I've ever read entirely in Jimi's own words, uncensored and unadulterated. I can hear his voice in my head as I read it(Leon Hendrix)
The nearest we'll ever get to an autobiography by the guitarist who redefined pop ... The book contains both snippets that confirm hunches one had about both man and music, and others that confound the stereotype of a wild reckless genius who played himself into an early grave in 1970 ... Fascinating (Ed Vulliamy Observer)
A startling first-person narrative, this is an engaging and immersive work that will delight those fascinated by the guitarist's legacy (Sunday Times Books of the Year)
The legendary guitarist had a gift with words ... articulate and instinctively wise on life's vicissitudes ... What pervades every page ... is a man thoroughly alive (MOJO ****)
The virtue of this book is its revelation of the restless, curious, creative, self-contradictory mind of a musical genius as he grappled with fame, fellow musicians, inspiration, doubt and life under the competing spotlights of adulation and criticism. A must-read (Kirkus)
Documentary filmmaker Neal and record producer Douglas have astutely and seamlessly assembled Hendrix's long-scattered writings into a confiding, funny, and wrenching memoir of a life lived on the edge and passionately devoted to music and freedom (Booklist)
A chronological account of Hendrix's life told exclusively in his own words, painstakingly researched over two decades. The result is a first-person narrative ... an intimate look inside the musician's thoughts ... Thrilling (Wall Street Journal)
Jimi Hendrix in his own words. An intimate, posthumous memoir from one of the great gods of rock and rollSee all Product description

We have seen a lot of interviews over the years and my partner has read many books on Hendrix , his comment is' that anyone can take pieces of information from interviews and snippets from Hendrix's scribbles , the book is ok but at the end of the day , its just one persons interpretation'
I am sure many will enjoy reading this book but when all is said and done if it wasn't written in Jimi's own hand , so its not really his own story .
Interpret the story for yourselves , its not an expensive book so worth the 'experience'! (excuse the pun) .
