Editorial Reviews


"A gifted storyteller with a beat reporter's nose for hidden details, Ryan White has crafted a definitive portrait of one of America's most potent cultural icons. And yet this is so much more than an account of sandy footed slacker king Jimmy Buffett. It's also a peek into the yearning heart of overworked Americans searching for their own shaker of salt and helping drive the fantasy that turned Buffett's tequila stunned 1977 smash ‘Margaritaville’ into the keystone of a multi billion dollar leisure industry." –Peter Ames Carlin, author of Bruce 

“Finally—a full length Jimmy Buffett bio that’s accurate and entertaining. Ryan White captures a life of creativity, of strumming songs, taking care of business, and of owning the stage while dancing to the bank.

Great writing makes for great reading, and this book outshines all earlier looks at Buffett’s career and lifestyle. White has interviewed dozens of the man’s colleagues, influences and guides, and asked all the right questions. Now we get to enjoy new insights and correct info right down to the sunburn.

Thank goodness for Ryan White. He delivers a fine tale and, like Buffett, super entertainment."

Tom Corcoran, author of Crime Almost Pays and The Quick Adios (Times Six).

“White unravels the tale of America’s favorite pirate with journalistic vigor and an ear for the poetic detail. It turns out that Jimmy Buffett’s real story is an interesting and wild as the countless myths and legends that have grown around him.” Hayes Carll, Grammy nominated singer songwriter 

“Ryan White has written a highly entertaining and very informative book about Jimmy Buffett; one that manages to go well beyond the mythology and legends while still giving them their just place in the grand design. An excellent read.”
Patterson Hood, Drive By Truckers
