Really enjoyed this.Learned alot. I read this book because the main character in High Fidelity says that it is his favorite book but I don t know how that could be true Some of the stories in it were slightly interesting but there was no overall story and most of the book was listing off people Cash knew in his life He describes his many properties and even tells of the hardships his children encountered trying to make it in the entertainment industry because of their famous father, neglecting the fact that they were given tremendous opportunities because of this fact In the end, I got sick of hearing about Jesus from a drug addict that clearly cheated on all of his wives I love his music and will continue to do so but i was not impressed by this book. In the movie High Fidelity, the main character is talking about the well known books he has read and then concludes with, But I have to say my all time favorite book is Johnny Cash s autobiography, Cash by Johnny Cash This line in this movie is the sole reason I first decided to read this book It captured me almost immediately as Cash describes growing up poor in the South and picking cotton His life story is incredible and told with all the beauty and lyrical language that made him a great song writer This book provides insight not just into Cash s life but gives a glimpse at different periods in recent American history An amazing life, full of hardship, myth, love and beauty, I felt privileged to have this glimpse that Cash gives with such honesty I have read this book twice all the way through, and I am not sure I can say that for any other biography or autobiography.
