"Cash reflects on the mosaic of his life with his trademark brand of honesty, humility, and humor. It's all here. His childhood on an Arkansas cotton farm. The early years at Sun Records; being fired from the Grand Ole Opry; his life on the road; meeting and performing for world leaders; the years of addiction to amphetamines and pain pills; his attempt to kill himself and the profound, life-saving spiritual awakening that pulled him through; and his deep devotion to his wife, June, and their family." "Here, in his own words, Cash sets the record straight, dispelling a few myths (contrary to popular belief, he never did serve jail time) and looking unsparingly at his own turbulent past." "Also, woven throughout this compelling memoir are the friendships of a lifetime, with such fellow artists as Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, and Bob Dylan - and with Dr. Billy Graham, who so inspired Cash's own faith."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

You really hear Johnny Cash's distinctive voice come across in this sincere and conversational memoir. Particularly in the earlier parts of the book, it is quite powerful in its stories, observations and even its prose. The anecdotal, non-chronological structure of the book is very bracing and readable, though it does presume some foreknowledge on the part of the reader of the general arc of Cash's career.

Towards the end, however, the vignette-like structure starts to become disjointed and the book runs out of steam. It loses its grave but grateful tone, and the final chapters read like an extended Acknowledgements page. Regardless, it is a rare 'celebrity' memoir that delivers, and while you don't become educated about his complete biography, you do get from the intimate, natural conversation with him a sense of the essence of the Man in Black.

Loved it. Much like I love Cash himself. ( )

Do you like Johnny Cash? Okay, then you'll probably like this book.

Written with his startling sparse honesty, [b:Cash|35488|Cash|Johnny Cash|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1388404773s/35488.jpg|49239] is the biography largely focusing on his later years. [b:Man in Black|35470|Man in Black|Johnny Cash|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1332007422s/35470.jpg|3055103], if I understand it correctly more strongly focuses upon his younger years, addiction, and wooing of June. [b:Man in White|1173411|The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit My Family's Exodus from Old Cairo to the New World|Lucette Lagnado|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1387664732s/1173411.jpg|1161176] focuses upon his rebirth into Christianity. [b:Cash|35488|Cash|Johnny Cash|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1388404773s/35488.jpg|49239], on the other hand, is just about how he views life and deals with things.

I like Johnny Cash, but I don't really know a lot about him. I came away from this book with a respect fort he man and all he'd been through and learned along the way. There's a sincerity to his writing that is a bit shocking, a humbleness and gentle humor to it that is difficult not to find endearing.

It's a good book, a good biography, and a very different view of Cash than what you'll find in any casual assessment of him. ( )

Johnny Cash has been a favorite performer of mine for many years. Here he tells about his own demons and how there was hardly a person alive that he had any issues with. Everybody's wonderful. ( )

More of a memoir than an autobiography, this is a scattershot view of The Man in Black's life. Told in his voice it is a riveting look at country music --and life-- by one of all-time great musicians. ( )
