Praise for Lightfoot, the definitive biography

A round up of the best reviews from Canadian and American magazines and newspapers:

“Perhaps the greatest gift of Lightfoot is that [it leads] you right back to [his] music. Feels like you never left, only better.” Maclean’s magazine

“an informative, highly readable book...Lightfoot fans should rejoice.”   Globe & Mail

“This portrait of a stoic, deeply talented and driven man is an engaging and moving one. An essential read for anyone who cares about late 20th century troubadours.”  Buffalo News

“Jennings as always is a master storyteller . . . His deft manipulation of narrative, told in clear language, draws the reader in immediately . . . Jennings’s true gift might be his ability to slowly reveal Lightfoot to us – over the course of the book, the complexity of his character emerges, through a peeling away of the many layers the notoriously reticent singer has kept hidden. . . the best reward for Lightfoot fans who have waited for so long: Lightfoot is your chance to finally know him deeply.” National Post

“If you could read Gordon Lightfoot’s mind, this is the tale his thoughts could tell..” Washington Post

"Thorough and generous, without ignoring the singer's warts."  Winnipeg Free Press
