In the audiobook ‘Break Shot: My First 21 Years‘ James Taylor recounts the first 21 years of his life in very personal and moving terms while interspersing his performances of his music.

The audiobook is only 90-minutes long and worth every minute. Here are a couple of highlights that really resonated with me:

  • “Memory is tricky. We remember how it felt, not necessarily how it was. Songs grow out of memories.”
  • “We want to go back and fix something that has already vanished and can never be corrected. But we can correct it in a song . . . .”
