2014 Herbie Hancock with Lisa Dickey

The book is interesting - a lot of stories I remember being told differ from what is told here. A lot of stories left out. Books are often more accurate than conversation, and I am glad to be corrected. However, I presume many of the stories were "compressed" to make them more readable - life is messy, and re-arranged and modified details are more readable. But this points out a problem with "authoritative sources" which I presume this will become; no story is perfectly accurate. It makes me more skeptical about all the thousands of histories and biographies I've read - not that they aren't useful stories, but a time machine for viewing the past would change a lot of history.
