I am a huge fan of Womack's music and was looking forward to reading his autobiography. It was an easy and enjoyable read.

I only started noticing Bobby Womack after hearing a couple of tracks from his album (Bravest Man in the Universe), liking them, buying the album and then buying his greatest hits. The man has created some fantastic tunes. After hearing bits and pieces about his life I picked up this book.

Its a very honest autobiography, Womack has been through some hard times, some of his own making and some not. It is a fascinating tale and well worth a read.

Great Read

Very insightful about one of the greatest musical talents ever. Bobby tells everything about his life. Including the details of his marriage to Barbara Cooke.

The man is not missing an ego or a sense of self, and he makes decisions based on a logic you can at the very least understand. What I found interesting was his interplay with stars of that era and their interactions with him. Very conversational, very laid back but to the point, I found this enjoyable.

Great read written honestly and from the heart. This mans life and the legends he meets along the way would make a great movie.
