Wise & Gentle Wisdom--from a Life Well Lived!,
This review is from: Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die: Musings from the Road (Hardcover)
Yes, I am biased. Have been listening to Willie's music for years. Love all those country "outlaw" guys. Read Willie's book "The Tao of Willie" some years ago and found it to be quite inspirational---for lots of reasons.
This new book "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die"---is a candid retrospective of "Now"-- and to Willie: Now is Forever and Forever is Now. If this doesn't make sense to you....it probably will after you read this easy to digest little tome...that includes jokes, stories, comments about Willie from his family. Amazing illustrations from his youngest son and extremely talented artist, Micah Nelson.
Even if you are not a fan of his music....his life, his wisdom, and his gentleness make him a "folk hero of the highest order"....this lovely book loaded with wisdom does not disappoint even the most skeptical....
Looking for a Holiday Gift....this is a good one to consider.

Does your copy have a signature (and drawing) on the first page inside the front cover, and on the back page, inside the back cover? Thank you!

I stood in line for 3 hours, at a local BookStore in Austin, TX. (BookPeople) for a signed copy of the book. And was happy to get it, as it is a Christmas present for a friend of mine and a fan of Willie's. I bought the book for myself from Amazon and it doesn't have the picture, autograph, etc---and IT BEARS THE SAME TEXT AND AUTHENTICITY. Reading it was certainly time well spent for me....with or without a personal autograph.

Mine has the signature in the front and back, along with a drawing. I'm wondering if this is authentic or preprinted?

Our book has the same so I'm sure they're not authentic. Unless Willie really got on a roll one night (pun intended).
