Publisher's Summary

Following in the tradition of Ghost Rider and Traveling Music, Rush drummer Neil Peart relates nearly four years of band tours, road trips, and personal discoveries in this introspective travelogue. From the ups and downs of a professional artist to the birth of a child, this revealing narrative recounts 22 adventures from rock's foremost drummer, biker enthusiast, husband, and father. Both playful and insightful, Peart's love of drumming and the open road weaves throughout the stories as Neil explores horizons that are both physical and spiritual, sharing his observations about nature, society, and the self.

What a disappointment!

This book does not cover travel or motorcycles much. it is a plotless drivel that came to fruition after a copy and pasted job was completed on a blog of a local celebrity. It is full of useless trivia and superficial observations. The narrator sounds like a 60 year old vegan guy whose joy in life is limited to eating cereal with soy milk in the morning. I have never heard of a rock group called Rush. If you are not a fan then skip and save your 1 credit and a of disappointment.

Good Read... or listen. Smooth Narration.

I really enjoyed this book, but not as much as Ghost Rider. Maybe I just related more to Ghost Rider, but I still would listen/read again and would definitely recommend this.

In addition Brian Sutherland did a excellent job narrating.

I got my prize

I've read almost every book Neil Preart has written, I'll get to all of them someday. This one, like the others, was such a joy and I feel like I am richer for having read it. I got my prize.

I wish Neil could have read this himself.

The audio version of this book is read with such monotone that it may as well have been performed by Neil’s navigation. Excellent content, however.

Read the book...don't listen to it

The narrator sounds like a robot...no life, no excitement. His cadence was almost painful to listen to. I gave up listening to what is probably a pretty good bunch of stories.

AWESUM.

I have been a fan since I was riding in a car seat as a child. My stepfather introduced me to the band. This book is a good look behind the scenes.

Engaging and entertaining

I enjoyed this book. I'm neither a motorcyclist or a Rush fan, but Neil was a great drummer and it's a fascinating listen/read.

An engaging listen.

A thoughtful, engaging and entertaining listen. As ever Neil Peart takes you on a journey but it is never straight forward or dull.
