Kirkus, 2/15/12

"Tasty as a Buddy Guy guitar lick."

Library Journal, 3/1/12

"Guy is a vibrant and hilarious storyteller. With a natural ease and honesty, he captures the spirit of the age, the culture of violence in the clubs, and the personalities of his colleagues...Highly recommended for any fan of Guy and those interested in the history of blues music."

Publishers Weekly, 4/16/12

"As mesmerizing a storyteller as a guitarist, Guy, writing with Ritz, regales readers with tales of growing up picking cotton in rural Alabama, of seeing his first guitar and standing transfixed in front of Lightning Slim for several hours just memorizing the movements of Slim's hands, of his father's friend buying his first guitar for him, and of his endless efforts to play the blues as he had heard and seen Slim and others play...Guy's memoir is a joyous celebration of the blues, one of our greatest musical treasures."

Chicago Magazine, May 2012

"[A] must-read autobiography...What makes the breezy and revealing book special is its ability to bring history--Guy's own, as well as that of Chicago blues--to life."

Internet Review of Books, 4/6/12
