Book Description:

Quirky and candid, Neil Young's wildly-acclaimed book of reminiscences is as compelling as his first. He returns with more unforgettable stories about his six decades in the music business - and his wonderful lyrics - but this is not your average rock biography. He centres this new work on one of his life's passions, cars, using the framework of all the cars he's ever owned to construct a narrative of his life and career, exploring how memories are attached to objects.
