Reviews

"If you call yourself a Joel fan, you'll be reading this." -Newsday "[T]he rollicking story of a Hicksville boy made good." -Maura Johnston, Newsday "Schruers clearly realizes he has gold in his interviews with Joel, his friends, paramours and confidants... [He delivers] insights on individual songs that will surprise even the most studied Joel fan.... [and] has given us the most complete look at Joel's life and career to date." -Dallas Morning News [Billy Joel] not only lives up to its subtitle, but has the strengths of both an autobiography and biography.... [It] will likely end up as the most complete tome on the Bard of Long Island, with the most access to its subject." -Houston Press "[A] funny, revealing, and poignant look at [Joel's] long career." -Boston Globe "Schruers' account of Joel's 1970s rise is fantastic, rich in anecdotes about the origins of different songs." -Billboard "[A] funny and revealing account of one of the most popular songwriters of our time." -New York Daily News "Schruers uses interviews to great effect, allowing to emerge the everyman persona that resonates with Joel's fans...a fair, thorough assessment of Joel's celebrity." -Publishers Weekly From the Hardcover edition.
