    One thought on “The Fine Wisdom and Perfect Teachings of the Kings of Rock and Roll: A Memoir”

    1. Full disclosure, I read up to page 40 then skimmed the rest The title is misleading Peeved at Michael Pollan for the recommendation At first loved the poetic writing style and casual references to great thinkers, then discovered that this was the main ploy of the book, not so much insider facts about Rock history Worst of all, I had no need for an ode to the great and powerful cock its ability to piss anywhere and claim space.

    2. In his New York Times bestselling book, Teacher , Mark Edmundson gave us an entertaining chronicle of early youth as a high school student in the working class town of Medford, Massachussetts Teacher is a coming of age story, where an Ivy league educated, inspiring, erudite, and unique teacher, Frank Lears, helps a booze drinking, rebellious, athletic, and somewhat lost young man see the power of knowledge, and the desire of a life spent in pursuit of learning The Kings of Rock and Roll is also [...]

    3. I have to start out by mentioning that the title of the book is completely misleading I learned about Karl Marx s theories and the pressures of wanting to sleep with often nude and sunbathing coeds when you happen to be a teacher than I did about anything related to rock and roll, though there is the most tenuous of links The book focuses on the four or five years after his graduation from Bennington College, and his life as a techie for Rock shows and errant cab driving surrounded by his rich [...]

    4. This is a good memoir seeped in Edmundson s quirky search for himself as a younger man Today he is a well respected academic according to the book jacket in those days he used to heft amps for great Rock groups like the Grateful Dead he seemed to have a special liking for some members of the Jefferson Airplane Its written a a type of free flowing self association There are many references that seem familiar and particular to those days of the late 1960 s and beyond But, his musings seem to pick [...]

    5. This book is a little bit uneven than Why Teach But I found myself laughing out loud a lot, especially towards the end of the book About halfway through I realized that the title, although related to the main idea of the book, is mostly misleading Edmundson doesn t know that much about rock and roll His recollection of the Woodstock school is humorous, humane and inspiring.
