This book has a lot of overlap with Louis Armstrong in His Own Words; I just reread the sections that weren't included in that book, like Armstrong's fascinating 14-page 1941 letter to critic Leonard Feather. Well worth reading for Satchmo fans and jazz fans; probably of no interest to anyone else.
