I just listened to ‘Break Shot: My First 21 Years‘ by James Taylor on Audible. Taylor recounts his first 21 years in very personal and moving terms while interspersing his wonderful music.
The audiobook is only 90-minutes long and worth every minute. Here are a couple of highlights that really resonated with me:
- “Memory is tricky. We remember how it felt, not necessarily how it was. Songs grow out of memories.”
- “We want to go back and fix something that has already vanished and can never be corrected. But we can correct it in a song . . . .”
This audiobook is free to Audible members and free with a trial through April 2, 2020. I would have gladly paid for this gem of an audiobook.
