Perhaps my expectations were too high,
This review is from: Who I Am: A Memoir (Hardcover)
I finished this book last night, I'm still trying to figure out why I didn't care for it. I'm a big Who/Pete fan, have been since age 14, (40 years ago!) and I had high hopes for this. After all, Pete has long been one of the best and most articulate interview subjects ever, his reviews of his own (and others) work have always been very insightful and (sometimes) humorous. In a nutshell: this book has to cover a lot of ground, 60 plus years, and it feels like big chunks of his life are just skimmed over. Personally, I was hoping to learn more about his approach to his music than hearing about his endless extra-marital affairs and real estate deals. It's just kind of ....ordinary. Too bad.

I liked this review. It seemed to underscore my main feeling about the book which was this book read less of an autobiography and more like a deposition.
