I learned to fully appreciate Carole King in the last decade. When I picked up the guitar, I started to explore songs that were easy to learn on the instrument. This exploration led me to the singer-songwriter generation of the late 60's/early 70's (I know Carole is more known for being a pianist, but you get my drift). So, I'm glad I read this book. I wanted to get more insight on singers during that era. Instead, Carole chronicles her life from childhood to now by talking mostly about life and the social issues occurring during specific moments in her journey through this world. Her music almost feels like it's taken a backseat, or is used only to correlate her feelings towards the world. But I wouldn't expect less from a pioneer from the singer-songwriter generation. I quite enjoyed this book.
