Lynch is undoubtedly a great artist and is an engaging story teller, although I suspect that a great deal has been left untold. The biography part reads like a long series of testimonials and Lynch predictably proselytizes for TM. Mr Lynch is deserving of enormous respect but this book would have been far more interesting if it had dug deeper.
