(Book). From his debut with local bands in his native Canada to his 2014 album A Letter Home , Neil Young's career spans over 50 years of rock-music history.

Every aspect of Young's remarkable life is explored through exclusive interviews with fellow musicians, record producers, music journalists, film directors, and loyal fans. Among those featured are musicians Graham Nash, Nils Lofgren, and Richie Furay; filmmaker Jim Jarmusch; photographer Henry Diltz; and many more. Featuring a retrospective commentary on Neil Young's studio and live albums, a complete discography, and photographs and memorabilia from throughout his career, the book places Young's musical achievements within the context of his life an essential and timely celebration.

''[A] very well written and well designed book that also includes a very thorough discography cataloging everything from a 1963 single with the Squires to 2015's The Monsanto Years. There's also a couple of hundred photographs, some of which are previously unpublished and all carefully chosen and the book is interspersed with a year by year timeline that acts as a quick reference point for major events along the way. Neil Young fans are unlikely to be disappointed.'' --Louder Than War
