New Jimmy Bio Book

Amazon is showing a book to be released in May, "Jimmy Buffett - A Good Life All The Way" by Ryan White. Anybody have any background or info on this project? I doubt Jimmy's involved with this, so I'm curious to see how in depth it gets. Jimmy's always written so much himself, I've always thought it'd be interesting to get an all-encompassing bio from an author from the outside looking in, so I'm kind of looking forward to this.

The Jimmy Buffett Scrap Book is probably the best book regarding non-Buffett (and associated) written books. It's a bit heavy handed with the Parrothead crap but it's a (seemingly) well rounded history of JB.

Steve Eng's book was decent but also heavy handed with trite ridiculous cute smarmy Parrotheadisms.

Those 2 books are so old but so what, right?

It'll be worth a read when it comes out I'm sure. I hope it's not a let down.
