    I have always enjoyed the music, but it was great to hear from the singer/songwriter herself how she has found her way in music. I liked the focus on her career and of course singing her music.

    If you like Sheryl Crow, you most likely will enjoy this short memoir. I know I did.

    I did not know much about Sheryl Crow or her music, but I thought this was very well done, and I even recognized a couple of the songs that she sang in here. I really enjoyed taking a peek into her journey and it makes me want to check out more of her music. She is one of those strong women in the industry that I hope continues to do well because she's an important voice for artists wanting to be true to themselves despite what "the industry" tells them to do, but especially for female artists.

    4 stars (liked a lot) An authentic and insightful look into Sheryl Crow's life and perspective narrated by her and interspersed with her playing some of her most meaningful songs, all of which I found very special as a fan of her and her music.

    This was a great, short audiobook. I was a big fan of Crow in the nineties and sang a lot of her songs in a cover band. I loved that she focused on her career changes from start to now and not so much on her personal life. As a writer and singer, this was fascinating to me. I LOVED the acoustic versions of her songs throughout. I'm currently working on an audiobook project with music in it, so it was interesting to hear how well it worked to have songs interspersed throughout the narration.

    When I started "The Last Train to London" last month, I was actually listening to it on Audible, but the narrator's voice was too stylistic for me, and I ordered the paperback book instead. I have discovered that I like Audible books that are read by the author, and autobiographies are my favorite. I have listened to Trevor Noah's "Born a Crime", Rainn Wilson's "The Bassoon King", and James Taylor's "Break Shot" on Audible, and have enjoyed them all.

I have listened to Trevor Noah's "Born a Crime", Rainn Wilson's "The Bassoon King", and James Taylor's "Break Shot" on Audible, and have enjoyed them all. I can't really keep up with my Audible subscription. I get a new free credit every month, but I prefer reading to listening, with the exceptions noted above, so I don't do one a month. And when I finished "This Fight is Our Fight", I saw that Audible was offering Sheryl Crow's "Words + Music" for free, on top of my monthly freebie. But it fit my criteria, an autobiography read by the author, so I took it. It was only an hour and 37 minutes long (in the same neighborhood as James Taylor's), so I finished it in one session. Somehow I love hearing the backstory of people whom I've only known from their public professional lives. Hers was no exception. And as you probably know by now, if you've read my reviews, I don't try to summarize the books. These are about my personal reactions to them. So I will just touch on a few things that touched me. Her first big break was touring with Michael Jackson's troupe in 1987 to 1989. So many people have said that, his brilliant singing and performing aside, he was a child predator and a stunted personality that could not cope with the real world. Sheryl Crow saw him differently. She said that singing behind him, she always saw the damaged personality who was able to step into a sense of divinity when he was on stage. She had compassion for him, unlike so many others. She talks frankly about being sexually harassed on the road to fame (which she never really sought), about a number of relationships, including one with Eric Clapton, that never worked out, about her diagnosis of breast cancer, and about having adopted two boys, now teenagers. I did not know that she made her final album, "Threads", last year. She intersperses her story chapters with unplugged versions of some of the songs reflecting those times. It was an hour and 37 minutes well-spent.

    Perfection. I have adored this lady since the first time I heard “All I wanna Do” in the summer of ‘94 when I was in the Army. I was a French/Haitian Creole 97E Interrogator/Linguist/Interpreter assigned to a Special Ops Unit, PSYOP. After the leaflet I designed was dropped in Haiti and we invaded and took control of the country without a shot being fired or a person being killed, only the second time in History that this has occurred, someone in our unit was wise enough to check if we could boo Perfection.

Band, who were also there, mostly pulling perimeter guard duty for our warehouse base camp. They were indeed bootable, so we had them booked for 2 pm every Sunday for the following 8 weeks. The one song I remember them playing every single time was: “All I Wanna Do!” Bless her heart, the singer was ever so slightly off key, but we sure as hell didn’t care. Music is such a comfort in trying times, and that half hour of live music every Sunday at 2 pm was priceless. I listened to this on Audible and Sheryl tells her story from childhood to the present and the different songs selected for each section highlight how she has drawn on her life experiences in writing her songs. She is one of the best singer/songwriters of my generation, if not the best. I know that I will listen to this again and again, picking up on different things upon each time I listen, just as I do with her songs over the years.

    A really beautiful and candid look into Sheryl Crow’s life and music. She says that she was born with a sense of melancholy, and it’s evident in how that she speaks, writes and performs. I loved hearing her play acoustic versions of some of her biggest hits. Redemption Day gives me chills every time I hear it and Home is one of my personal favorites. I learned a lot about her career and after listening to this audiobook, I definitely added several new songs to my library.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful combination of storytelling and live music portrayed by the talented Sheryl Crow. She opens up about her early musical career in a vivid and personal way, bringing the reader/listener back to her roots as a back-up singer for Michael Jackson. She was so real in her delivery of stories that I felt like we were sitting somewhere sipping coffee together. I have even more respect for Sheryl Crow after hearing about her ups and downs in the music business.

    This is part of the premium audible catalog so I listened to it for “free” tonight. It was an okay listen. There were a couple of interesting facts. I liked what she said about Johnny Cash. Really just a pretty average “talking about my music, career and inspirations” and “recording versions of my songs that don’t sound like they did when you liked them.”

    Soulful! This artistry is so good that my husband and I stopped our Hurricane Sally clean up to sit and listen to the whole album/novel, not sure how to describe it, except to say I laughed, I cried, and I was left wanting more.

    I call this a program because it felt like an NPR special or some sort of radio storytime. It was a chance to slow down; to hear a compelling story with musical interludes. Truly enjoyable and just. good for the soul.

    I haven't been a big Sheryl Crow fan, but as she told her stories and sang her songs, I found myself adding her music to my playlists. This was a wonderful self-portrait. I'm glad she painted it!

    A simple conversation of an artist explaining her process. Her style is easy, but avoids any real depth. Probably a great choice for a die-hard fan, but so-so for a casual listener of Crow's music.

    Learned more about her than I expected. When she sings, her voice is still clear and true.

    Always like a book read by the author them selves- again little political push on this one---sensing a trend via Audible but liked hearing her story. Forgot she started with Michael Jackson
