Miles: The Autobiography, like the man himself, holds nothing back.
He talks about his battles against drugs and racism, and discusses
the many women in his life. But above all, Miles talks about music
and musicians, including the legends he has played with over the
years: Bird, Dizzy, Monk, Trane, Mingus and many others. The man
who has given us the most exciting music of recent times has now
given us a fascinating and compelling insight into his
extraordinary life. 'An engrossing read ...gives fascinating
insights into the cult phenomenon' Miles Copeland, Weekend
Telegraph 'Magnificently truthful, action packed, raw and bleeding'
Miles Kington, Independent 'Passionate, opinionated, unfettered
...What gives this book, and the man, their final weight and
strength is that Davis's driving, almost possessed pursuit of his
art. The passion to create is all, and let the world go hang
itself' Herbert Kretzmer, Daily Mail
