Reviews

'I read this in one glorious, giant gulp. As a fan of [Ben's] work and a musician, this is truly a gift.' -- Jamie Cullum
"A Dream About Lightning Bugs reads like its author: intelligent, curious, unapologetically punk, and funny as hell. This intimate look at his life from his own unique perspective is a rare and unforgettable gift that does what Ben Folds always has done for me as an artist and a friend: encourages me to be more myself, with a lot of swear words." -- Sara Bareilles
"Delightful...Singer-songwriter Folds explores the ways in which music shaped his life and offers glimpses into the process of making music....Folds's fans will take great pleasure in this charming and insightful memoir." * Publishers Weekly *
`I'm gonna learn to read for this' -- Josh Groban
"Besides being super talented, and an incredibly poignant and multifaceted musician, Ben Folds is a fantastic author. I couldn't put this book down - and not just because I taped it to my hand. Ben takes us into his mind and into his process from the very beginnings of his childhood to where he is today - one of the greatest musicians and writers that has ever graced the art." -- Bob Saget
"A masterfully written memoir, and so much more. Folds imbues this literary work with keen insight and humor to create an elegant and moving tribute to art and life itself." -- Daniel Levitin, author of #1 New York Times bestseller This Is Your Brain on Music and The Organized Mind
