"...Athough there are plenty of Hank Williams bios, [Family Traditions] isn't supererogatory. Rather than analyze Hank's music, Masino relates what he did when and who with. No one before her has made Hank's everyday reality so apparent, including all the time (i.e., most of the time) that he wasn't drunk." --Booklist
"[Susan Masino] does a nice job in her swift 256-page reader. Masino picks up on the striking tragedy of each Hank (from Hank Sr.'s destructive addiction to Hank Jr.'s near-fatal mountain fall to Hank III's admission of being molested by a relative), and she easily segues from Hank to Hank with fluid transitions that trace the family lineage....This is a fine introductory read on the Hank Williams legacy...." --Library Journal Xpress Review
