When I first received this book, I could not get over the size. There are 498 pages, plus notes, plus an index. It sort of seemed like a text book.
I was wrong. Each page read like a novel. The quotes from Willie Nelson were hilarious. I am now convinced that he would be a great guy to befriend. His humble beginnings contrast drastically with his present life as a legend.
This is truly a fun book. Anyone interested in Willie Nelson, the Grand Ole Opry, Hank Williams, and other country legends would love this book. Joe Nick Patoski is such a gifted writer. This is must reading for the country music fan.
