Billy Joel

Billy JoelBilly Joel, by Fred Schruers, tells the story of one a great singer, from his childhood all the way to his present life. I think it was really interesting how the book looked at some of his family beginnings, and their experiences with the Nazis taking over their family business. The book chronicles Billy Joel’s wives, struggles with alcohol, family life, as well as his musical career. I also liked that this book was in collaboration with Billy Joel, so you know the details are accurate to the experiences he really had in his life.
I think this is a great book for Billy Joel fans. I don’t know if people who don’t like his music would enjoy this book as much as I did, since it is fairly long. It is definitely not a book that can be read in one sitting like so many of the other celebrity biographies that are currently on the market. Overall, I enjoyed this book and look forward to sharing it with some of my friends who are also Billy Joel fans.
