While I was bound to love this book as a long-time fan of The Roots, as well as a fan of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Mo' Meta Blues is so much more than a straightforward autobiography of a hip-hop pioneer. From reading his book, it is clear that ?uestlove is preternaturally obsessed with music and ably writes at meticulous length about what excites, disappoints, inspires, and frustrates him about not just hip-hop, but music as a whole. This book is also an invigorated account of an interesting life, and while ?uest shies away from the petty dramas which often make celebrity memoirs so interesting, he instead offers a brilliant meditation on how and why music remains such a vital art form for both participants and listeners alike. A must-read for any serious music fan.

All kinds of fantastic! A memoir that is much more than that - be ready for a trip through music history, a bit of politics, some philosophy and lots of hilarity. A running appearance throughout by Roots manager Rich Nichols strangely adds a Douglas Coupland feel to the whole thing (in a good way!). My hunch is that if you're a Gen Xer or Gen Yer you'll enjoy it!
