first page, I couldn't put it down. It's a great read, you
feel as if Richie has said, "Come on in, sit yourself
down, and I'll tell you my life story - or as much as I
can fit in these pages." It really is like a private visit
with one of the best singer/songwriters of all time.
I think Richie did a great job of putting just the right
amount of God, family, friends, and his music in this,
his second and in my opinion, his best book. This
time he has let us in on his life, before, during and
after his rise to fame in the music business.
This is a wonderful book about Richie's life, loves,
sorrows, heartaches, music and of course the best
part - his path to accepting Jesus as Lord of his life.
I really enjoyed the pictures he included in the book
too. Richie at 10 months, a fourth grader, age 8 with
his first guitar, a Gibson ES295 and his senior picture.
Plus pictures of the many friends who helped him along
the way. Pictures of his fellow band members, and
pictures of other famous people he knows as friends.
And of course pictures of his "Kind Woman" Nancy,
their daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren as well
as pictures of Richie's mother, father and sister.
The worst part of this book for me - was that it had to
come to an end. When I had finished reading it, I wanted
more. But, that's how a "Real Rock-n-Roll Legend" leaves
the stage - with the fans wanting more. I hope this won't
be Richie's last book, as he can now add author to his
many, many talents.
Richie is truly a blessing to everyone he comes in contact
with - he always makes time for his fans and friends.
He spreads light, joy and gladness wherever he goes.
Once you meet him and see that special glow he has,
you will never forget him. He is a wonderful, loving,
down to earth, man of God.
I highly recommend this book,
