    I really wanted to love this book because I love Brian Wilson s music Whilst I got a lot of insight into Brian Wilson s troubled life, ultimately the book was constrained by Brian Wilson s ability to tell the story behind his own story even with the help of Ben Greenman At times the book was ponderous but there were also fluid moments when it was possible to get a glimpse of what was going on inside Brian Wilson s head when he was working on his earlier masterworks I recently watched the mo I really wanted to love this book because I love Brian Wilson s music Whilst I got a lot of insight into Brian Wilson s troubled life, ultimately the book was constrained by Brian Wilson s ability to tell the story behind his own story even with the help of Ben Greenman At times the book was ponderous but there were also fluid moments when it was possible to get a glimpse of what was going on inside Brian Wilson s head when he was working on his earlier masterworks I recently watched the movie Love and Mercy and the documentary about the re making of SMiLE and those two films together with this book have given me a much better understanding and indeed a sense of marvel at what Brian ...

    I had to take one star off for the repetitive, disorganized format of this book, it very much reads like a transcribed stream of consciousness brain dump from Brian Wilson Also, Brian doesn t hesitate to name drop Phil Spector is mentioned ad nausium , but he s not doing to impress IMO, I think he s often in awe of the people he s met, but it does get annoying However I did enjoy the fact that this is very much written in Brian Wilson s voice, if you can wade through the disjointed narrative, I had to take one star off for the repetitive, disorganized format of this book, it very much reads like a transcribed stream of consciousness brain dump from Brian Wilson Also, Brian doesn t hesitate to name drop Phil Spector is mentioned ad nausium , but he s not doing to impress IMO, I think he s often in awe of the people he s met, but it does get annoying However I did enjoy the fact that this is very much written in Brian Wilson s voice, if you can wade through the disjointed narrative, you ll get a real feel for how Brian thinks and looks at life Brian is unable or unwilling to real...

    It s said that there s a thin line between genius and madness, and Brian Wilson s memoir is all about walking that line At age 74 he is clearer than he has ever been and speaks honestly about both his music and his mental illness He tells his story in an unassuming and down to earth way, and the audiobook is an engaging way to experience it Fred Berman s performance is so authentic in intonation and phrasing that at first I thought it was Wilson himself reading Part of Wilson s life is the d It s said that there s a thin line between genius and madness, and Brian Wilson s memoir is all about walking that line At age 74...
