Publisher Description

Johnny Cash is one of the most influential figures in music and American popular culture today. While he was an icon to people of all ages during his life, Cash's legacy continues after his death. His remarkable story is captured in this exclusive authorized biography, addressing the whole life of Johnny Cash-not just his unforgettable music but also his relationship with June Carter Cash and his faith in Christ. His authenticity, love for God and family, and unassuming persona are what Steve Turner captures with passion and focus in this inspiring audiobook.

Different from other books written about him, The Man Called CASH brings Cash's faith and love for God into the foreground and tells the story of a man redeemed, without watering-down or sugar-coating. Unquestionably one of the biggest book releases of 2004, The Man Called CASH will be a huge success with his millions of fans and will draw in many new fans with this inspiring story of faith and redemption.

The audio book, ISBN 084996377X, is narrated by Cash's close friend and musical partner, Kris Kristofferson.

    " I became a fan of Johnny Cash after reading this book. "

    " I had downloaded this audiobook for a car ride with Tom as he is a big Cash fan but we never listened. I really enjoyed this book, did not know a lot about his early history, only about the big pieces. His spirituality and how he helped mentor others in both religious & music were major themes. I also liked how all the children were considered children not step, half, etc. by both June & Johnny. "

    " I am generally not a reader of biographies, but was drawn to this one by circumstance and found it to be a touching portrait of the artist as much more that a drug using country western singer, but rather a complex and genuine human being. "

    " Good book, but more detail than I needed. Still, it is a comprehensive biography for anyone who needs or wants one. "

    " Of course Cash's life is very interesting to read about, but this book is rather poorly written and edited. If you are going to read about his life I would probably recommend one of his other biographies or autobiography. "

    " I adore Johnny Cash and loved reading this book. It was great to hear how he started, where he came from, his inspirations...etc. "

    " Not the most entertaining read due to author's relentless attention to detail but Cash's life story is a drama worth reading for sure. If you want to know all you can about the highs and lows of his life then look no further but there may be a punchier version out there somewhere... "

    " Great book about Johnny Cash - I thought it was a balanced account about a man with almost as many failings as he had gifts and talents. In my opinion a redemptive story about an artist who wrestled with his faith, his demons and his desire to keep his integrity. I really enjoyed this one. "

    " Grew up listening to his music, reading this gave me insight to the man that I never knew beside the music and the media. Reading this book gave me insight to the real man and his life. "

    " As interesting as the subject matter was, I expected the book to be more exciting. It was more akin to reading the book of Numbers in the Bible. The style or writing was more fact driven than prose, and I barely draggged myself through the book. "

    " Started slow but it was decent. I would have loved to listen to this book as a documentary with snippets of music put in and things like that. I really loved hearing the names of other famous musicians pop up in the narritive. "

    " After listening to this book I know one thing for certain, if I could ever bring myself to believe in a God it would be the same God which held Johnny Cash's belief his entire life. "

    " Probably a better book than I'm giving it credit for, but since I've never been an avid Cash fan the details were a bit grueling for me. Still, I thought it was worth reading about this intriguing life. "

    " What an amazing and often tormented life Johnny Cash had. Underneath it all he truly was a man of faith and it plays a huge part in his life's story. This was a good read about Cash and gave me a new interest in him and the songs he wrote. It made me wish I could have known him. "

    " I love Johnny Cash even more after reading this book. It goes into detail of the inner thoughts of Cash - what and who he loved, his music and his faith. Really inspiring! "

    " Cash is a fascinating man -- more fascinating than this book would lead you to believe. I expected an "official" biography to gloss over the less savory aspects of his life, and this one does, but it doesn't really delve deep into any aspect of his life. Disappointing. "

    " Richly detailed account of an American icon with much more depth than I had ever thought.Johnny Cash was more than just another country singer and this book peels back the layers like on an onion, revealing more and more about a multi-faceted man. Very good book. "
