I really wanted to love this book.But it made me realize the difference between what the public sees in a musician versus reality.The later years Ray Charles I remember, was the music loving grandpa, fiercely independent but lovable as portrayed in a 60 Minutes piece about his life.This book does NOTHING to support that PR viewpoint of RC.At times he comes off as a rebel but not very generous or really nice at times. Other times, the book read like a spruced up calendar with a little fluff (or dirt) depending on the source.

Now, if you want a little insight into how the recording industry changed over a long time period, this is the book for you.You get details about life before popularity, life during the peak years and the fall into reverential obscurity.At times, it felt like RC never really adjusted to the changes in musical tastes past the early to mid-1960s.
