Publisher's Summary

Tales of adventure, misadventure, love, and loss - this collection of non-fiction short stories from the Australian rock legend turned writer is vintage Jimmy. Outrageous, witty, warm and wise, Killing Time shares more than 40 yarns reflecting an epic life - from an encounter with a soul legend in Memphis, a night in a haunted studio in upstate New York, and a doomed haircut in Thailand to a madcap misunderstanding in a Japanese ski resort, a family feud on a remote coral atoll, and an all-too-revealing appearance for a Sydney charity.

not as expected

Overall it was ok, however it felt more shallow not mind blowing or deeply insiteful like his first two books which I really enjoyed. i was expecting a few more stories from when he was on the road, encounters with other people, hard rock stories sort of thing.

Great book

Jimmy tells some great tales that give An insight into the mind of a down to earth man with humbleness a giant heart open to expressing his pitfalls and playing down his awesome talent. Thank you for sharing such an huge part of you.

Great follow up to the first 2 books

I read the first 2 books in hard copy but listened to this one on audible and really enjoyed hearing these short stories from Jimmy himself. Some serious but mostly lighthearted follow up to the earlier books that seriously changed how I view the world.
