Berger eventually becomes a well known psychologist, but not before becoming a recording engineer superstar. This book takes us into the music business of the seventies and the stars we all know and love. He gives us glimpses of the lives of Dylan, Jagger and Paul Simon (who was not an easy man to work with). We even get a peek at Sinatra as the book progresses.
Berger is not afraid to lay his own life out there either. His relationship with various stars, the stress he went through, and even the adoption of his son, build a picture of a man faced with the choice of fame or integrity. Since the roads he took lead him to writing this book, perhaps he made the right choices. The book, Never Say No to a Rock Star, is informative, humorous and even poignant in parts. I will say that it took away some of the hero worship I felt for a few of these music legends, but sometimes seeing the real man behind his music makes that music even more meaningful.
