An exploration of many often overlooked aspects of the legend's life and career

The New York Times - Douglas Brinkley

What makes this so valuable a biography is that Streissguth…debunks the myths that have enveloped Cash, in large part owing to two autobiographies, Man in Black (1975) and Cash (1997), both full of exaggerations. Although Streissguth is not the literary equal of Peter Guralnick (Elvis Presley) or Elijah Wald (Robert Johnson), he avoids the gush-and-awe prose of Rolling Stone and Spin…The amount of new archival material he unearths…is truly impressive.
