This is the official authorized biography of musician and vintner Maynard James Keenan, the enigmatic vocalist for Tool, A Perfect Circle, and Puscifer. Co-author Sarah Jensen's 30-year friendship with Keenan gives her unique insight into his history and career trajectory. 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.

Great and inspiring story from start to finish regardless of whether you are a Maynard fan or just looking for a captivating tale of what one can accomplish with the right drive and dedication.
I will honestly revisit this often as a source of inspiration.
Well written and well read. I especially enjoyed the little bits Maynard read himself, they were like little insights and footnotes that give you the feeling you are getting a little "extra"
