Le Freak: An Upside Down Story of Family, Disco, and Destiny by Nile Rodgers
"This book is an absolute knockout: exhilarating, warm, and courageous, deeply moving and deeply funny. Le Freak is as much about the greatness of life as it is about Nile Rodgers's extraordinary musical journey. As Rodgers well knows, the best music is the music is the stuff we feel, the stuff that speaks to us and won't let go. Le Freak does all that and much more. This is truly one of the best books ever written about art, music, life, and the way we grow to be exactly who we are. Actually, one of the best books period." — Cameron Crowe
