Good early history book of Hancocks career. Highlights on the rest, he has done so much that I can see why. Easy to read. Turned me on to Donald Bryd so that in itself was worth the read.

I really enjoyed this book. It's a very easy, summer read, and also an interesting account of Herbie's career developments.
