Singer-songwriter Richard Marx narrates his memoir with sophistication and wit, telling his life story as if pitching a hit song. Occasionally, he even breaks into a melody. His delivery is personal and precise, and it rolls along with a rhythmic pull. Marx shares no tales of addiction, debauchery, or crashing the tour bus. Instead, his memoir employs a self-deprecating "nice guy" approach. For example, one benefit he claims from his hip surgery is that his name was used in the same sentence as the word "hip." Skeptics of Marx's music oeuvre will discover that he is a complicated person with a great narrative voice, an absorbing life story, and a flair for detail In particular, songwriters will benefit from the tips of the craft dropped like breadcrumbs throughout.
