I love autobiographies and this book in particular. It is a very candid exposé of Miles's moving life—one that was full of discipline, perseverance, hard work, and at the same time contradicted by heroin abuse, cars, women, and tragedy—all, in a way, a metaphor for jazz itself, unpredictable, freestyle.
