This is a great book on the life of Yanni and his musical journey. It's a very soulful and spiritual book, so if you are looking for inspiration on not giving up and following your heart to fulfill your dreams, this is a must read. I thoroughly enjoyed every story and interaction of his life with the people he most cherished,and it opened my eyes on the many roadblocks that were thrown his way and how he overcame them. The book is written in his words and it was very easy to understand. I have more respect now for his musical career than ever before.
I read this book several years ago. It was a wonderful. Very interesting to see Yanni's journey from a competitive swimmer in his teen years in Greece, to the International Star that he has become today.
