Editorial Reviews

Review

“Ribowsky (who’s also written books about Lynyrd Skynyrd, Otis Redding, Phil Spector and Tom Landry) weaves a captivating tale that includes Taylor’s struggles with drugs and depression, his affair with Joni Mitchell, his marriage to Carly Simon and his enduring, decade-spanning success.” —Parade


“[Sweet Dreams and Flying Machines] merits a place on the shelf as it traces Taylor's career through the 2015 release of the billboard chart-topping Before This World.” —Library Journal


“Ribowsky is especially effective weaving Taylor’s career into the complex story of the music industry’s evolution.” —The Washington Post


" Ribowsky artfully chronicles Taylor's life" and "offers a rich and nuanced portrait." —BookPage


"In this unauthorized James Taylor biography, author Mark Ribowsky covers everything you'd want to know about the music legend." —Boston Magazine
