Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mel | 2/2/2014

    " I enjoyed reading this biography. This is one of the most talented individuals who has helped to shape the music industry. I never was aware of how many of his songs I actually knew that he had some part in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jared Johnson | 1/29/2014

    " I gleaned so much about the music biz and, probably unlike other people, actually like all the name dropping he does throughout the book. If you REALLY want to know what the business is like, here you go. Also interesting what he says in defense of Kenny G. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mckayla | 1/4/2014

    " This was a very fast and easy read. I never realized how many artists he has worked with and it was interesting to hear more of the inside story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cliff | 11/18/2013

    " A good read but not my normal type of book. Life in the fast lane of popular music. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 11/7/2013

    " I love biographies ... and found David Foster an interesting read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth Sweet | 11/5/2013

    " I've always known that David Foster was a great music producer but I didn't realize how many artists he had worked with or created hits for until I read this book. His rise in the music business is inspiring and while the book isn't terribly in depth, it is an interesting and quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mark | 5/2/2013

    " I still don't know who David Foster was, but after reading the book, I'll be more attentive to album notes about record producers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miriah | 11/28/2012

    " I really liked how David Foster came to inspire other people to write and compose their own music. He has such a significant source to introduce us to many of the artists he has worked with over the last couple of years of his life and that's what really suprises me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 11/2/2012

    " I enjoyed this inside look at the music business. Foster is a genius but, even in his eyes, he is an arrogant jackass. Interesting background of his many hits. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Beecher-boring | 9/11/2012

    " Lots of good stories about people David Foster has worked with in the music business. He was careful not to blast anyone that he's worked with, although I think he insinuated plenty...(Whitney Houston, perhaps?) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jasmin | 8/15/2012

    " I loved the book. It was really well written and it was interesting to read about the personal struggles of David Foster. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frani Hahn | 7/26/2012

    " Love David Foster & his ego. Very entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doreen | 6/23/2011

    " I thought it was interesting to hear some of the background behind the music industry. But, he jumps around a lot and all the details of his personal life (the multiple marriages, divorces, and affairs) were a bit much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh McConnell | 6/12/2011

    " Not a very difficult read at all. Despite a lot of name dropping, the book is still an interesting read into the life of one of the music industry's biggest players. If you are a fan of reading about the music industry, consider this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosie Beck | 2/27/2011

    " His PBS show was great. Pretty good read. A driven man in a business more difficult than you would think it would be. Some insights to singers he's worked with too. "
