Ray writes with humour, sensitivity and a degree of candour in his illuminating autobiography. The book is cleverly written with a non-linear narrative allowing the reader to dip into different stages of Davies' life story. Therefore the writing is not predictable or mundane and remains interesting and informative throughout. In true Davies style the highs are understated and the lows treated with a concise understanding of the situation and its relationship to the bigger outside, comercial picture. This is documented especially during the America unions ban and the Clive Davis Arista years.
