The book traces Keenan's journey from his Midwest childhood to his years in the army to his time in art school, from his stint at a Boston pet shop to his place in the international spotlight and his influence on contemporary music and regional winemaking.

This was immensely satisfying. Tool has been a significant source of
Inspiration and guidance throughout my life. It really felt an enormous privilege to learn some of the details behind the man, his lessons from life, his refined sense of discernment and his desire to bring forth the transcendent in ways that are deeply practical and beautiful. Thanks Maynard and Thankyou for all the support that made this audible book happen. Spiral out. Keep going.
