I really enjoyed this. I was interested in this for two reasons 1- he comess from the early days of broadcasting and 2- he has great anecdotal comments on the country music stars of his day. I could've done without the usual sordid details of divorce and drunkeness but hey its his autobiography. But he's got enough stories about the radio and music industries to fill a few more hooks.
Whether you want to read specifically about the life of Ralph Emery or want to learn more about country music, this is the book for you. No matter why you read the book, you'll find intersting information about both topics.
