Oct 20, 2019 rated it it was amazing
"Looking through some photographs I found inside a drawer
I was taken by a photograph of you
There were one or two I know that you would have liked a littlemore
But they didn't show your spirit quite as true
You were turning 'round to see who was behind you
And I took your childish laughter by surprise
And at the moment that my camera happened to find you
There was just a trace of sorrow in your eyes

Now the things that I remember seem so distant and so small
Though it hasn't really been that long a time

This book captures Jackson up to 2005, and includes his newest album, and his introduction into the rock n' roll hall of fame. I liked the book a lot, and found out a lot more about him than I knew through his music.

If you don't know much about Jackson Browne then this is a very good book as you'll find it very informative, but as with all these books it draws on various interviews that he has done over the years. So if you have follwed Jackson's career through the decades you may not pick up a lot of new stuff.
