    I enjoyed all the stories Tom related in this book. From the earliest beginnings to the last it was a great read and I enjoyed it as though I were in the room speaking person to person with him. I learned a lot about songwriting and how he crafted his music. I recommend to anyone who is a fan to read this.
  • An Awesome Read!

    All Tom Petty fans will enjoy reading this book! Interesting to read Tom Petty’s thoughts in his own words on the songs he wrote and where the inspirations came from to do so. I highly recommend this book!
