In Byrne's words, "neither an autobiography nor a series of think pieces--but a little bit of both." Each chapter focuses on a distinct aspect of music: technology, history, performance, technique, et cetera. Includes Byrne's account of his art school years and first attempts at performance in the early '70s. With endnotes. Cover design by Dave Eggers.
