After reading a few pages of this diary, you will feel famous, too!
Relentlessly inquisitive, with an ironic humor, this is horribly interesting reading. I would give this away to most of my friends, even if they weren't Eno fans.
The book is his diary of 1995 and it is focused on his work, not so much his personal life. There are no juicy gossips and no confessions. It is mostly cold and impersonal. Steps were clearly taken to preserve his personal life. And you have to ignore some of the obvious embelishing (c'mon, Brian, if you are such a good cook, shouldn't you own a restaurant instead?).
But if you are involved in music you will get a glimpse into the tools and processes that make this man one of the great creative minds in contemporary music. And also understand where some of his shortcomings come from.
It is the closest thing to being a guest in his studio for a week.
Apart from the diary there are some texts at the end packed with original ideas.
