Amazon Best Books of the Month, September 2012: It's no surprise that David Byrne knows his music. As the creative force
behind Talking Heads and many solo and collaborative ventures, he's been writing, playing, and recording music for
decades. What is surprising is how well his voice translates to the page. In this wide-ranging, occasionally
autobiographical analysis of the evolution and inner workings of the music industry, Byrne explores his own deep
curiosity about the "patterns in how music is written, recorded, distributed, and received." He is an opinionated and
well-educated tour guide, and the resulting essays--on topics from rockers' clothes to the role of the turntable,
concert stages to recording studios--will give you an entirely new perspective on the complex journey a song takes from
conception to your iPod. --Neal Thompson
