The music of Frank Sinatra, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, and many other artists provides the score to the reflections of a musician on the road in this memoir of Neil Peart's travels from Los Angeles to Big Bend National Park. The emotional associations and stories behind each album Peart plays guide his recollections of his childhood on Lake Ontario, the first bands that he performed with, and his travels with the band Rush. The evocative and resonant writing vividly captures the meanderings of a musical mind, leading rock enthusiasts to discover inside information about Rush and the musical inspirations of a rock legend.
Neil Peart is the drummer and lyricist for the rock band Rush and the author of Ghost Rider. He lives in Santa Monica, California.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another great read. As always, Neil Peart has put together an excellent read. I love his style of circling through his story with many detours and switchbacks, yet never losing sight of the road. As someone who loves music and road trips, his insights are a real inspiration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neil Peart drum god, or writing god? Neil Peart probably rocks best known drummer, from legendary canadien trio "RUSH". personally my favorite band for quite sometime now, i learned that Neil was also a writer. I never was much of a reader until i started reading travelling music, this book made me feel more in tune to Neil and his thoughts inside and outside of rush. If you're a rush fan you will like this book! and if you're not a rush fan, you'll like it too, Neil is truly an amazing person, so take a step in to Neils truly unique life. Thank you neil

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It isThe Soundtrack to My Life and Times If you are a Rush fan this is interesting. If you are a Neil Peart, the author, fan this is a great read. If you even listened to the radio for the last 10 years this is a great book. If you fall into all the catagories then you'll love this book. Neil Peart shares his thoughts and feelings about a variety of subjects - mostly music and it is a joy to read! Neil Pearts writing flows in a natural way which is comfortable, infomative, humourous and even sometimes self-depreciating! I expect that is where his charm comes from!
