Editorial Reviews


“Rock may be dead, but Jann Wenner is still rolling…he still has something of the whirlwind about him.” —Maureen Dowd, New York Times

“A touchingly honest memoir from a man who recorded and shaped our times and of a grand life well lived. It is wonderfully deep and rewarding reading.”—Bruce Springsteen

"Rollicking read."—Paul McCartney

“[Wenner's] readers—for nearly half the century—get the best of him in these pages. I had a lot of fun getting lost in him and no interest in being found.”—Bono

“A rip-roaring and speedy ride through the excesses, excitements, and tragedies of our generation. Alternately thrilling, bedeviling, and deeply moving...unparalleled reading.”
—Bette Midler

"Over the top."—Jackson Browne

“Jann S. Wenner takes us on a long, strange trip with his accessible and entertaining rock ‘n’ roll memoir.”—Associated Press

"A wildly entertaining romp that will stir feelings of envy."—USA Today

"Readers will surely feast on all the behind-the-scenes candy featuring the likes of Bono, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Bette Midler, and countless other stars, plus media icons like Annie Leibovitz and Hunter S. Thompson."—Vanity Fair

"A mind-blowing and insightful trip through the life of one of the principal sculptors of Rock 'n' Roll culture....Thoughtful, opinionated and open-hearted."—Tom Morello

“A high-octane story...a sweeping portrait of a generation....Wenner is in a league of his own. This memoir is utterly intoxicating."
—Douglas Brinkley, Author of Silent Spring Revolution

"The founder, coeditor and publisher of Rolling Stone takes readers through his heady years at the most influential music and pop culture publication of its era.”—AARP, "45 Best Books of Fall"

"A frank, sharp memoir by a zeitgeist-savvy entrepreneur who ranks among the earliest of modern influencers.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Wenner recounts his life in his own words, offering an intimate look at his time running the magazine that helped to change American culture.”—Alexandra Jacobs, New York Times Review

An Amazon Best Book of September 2022: Jann Wenner’s memoir is more than an account of his extraordinary life, it is a love letter to the people and events that shaped our culture over decades. Musicians, artists, actors, politicians, writers, and reporters—all are here in technicolor as Wenner shares anecdotes about everyone from Hunter S. Thompson and Barack Obama, to Bono and Bob Dylan, to all the staff who made Rolling Stone iconic. Wenner reveals all: the parties, drugs, concerts, friendships and rivalries, campaign trails, and his path to living as a gay man. Rolling Stone was home to countless influential people, including Annie Leibovitz, Tom Wolfe, and Cameron Crowe, and Wenner brings the reader into his vast inner circle of celebrity friends. With each new chapter, the impact of his devotion to covering what mattered—in entertainment, politics, and investigations into everything from fast food to Facebook—grows clearer and more impressive. A mesmerizing chronicle, Like a Rolling Stone is worthy of a standing ovation. —Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Life
Reviewed in Germany 🇩🇪 on October 17, 2022
Before Zuckerberg, before Dorsey, before Musk, young people were crazy enough to start amazing projects. Like Virgin (Branson), like Beatles (Lennon, McCartney), like Grateful Dead and on and on and. Like Jann Wenner, who started Rolling Stone at 21 yrs.

Gen Z youngsters think they are unique. Many Gen Z people were born in centuries before them, many more will come in the future.

Like a Rolling Stone is a remarkable life story, anyone on a “mission” should read.
