David Wild doesn’t do a whole lot of worrying, but does a whole ton of loving in this celebration of Neil Diamond’s life and work. This isn’t a straightforward biography; it’s a memoir-biography, as Wild’s own family life plays a significant role in the book as well. As the pages go by, it becomes more and more apparent why there aren’t a bunch of books about Diamond already—he’s just not that interesting. A songwriter and passionate performer worthy of the well-written love of a journalist like Wild? Certainly. But this is not the dope-laden life of a rock star, or even the firecracker-short life of a young pop star, it’s the story of a man who worked extremely hard for the success he has. While Diamond may be known as a hairy-chested symbol of sexiness, his story is much the opposite. (http://www.dacapopress.com)
