Praise

“If you call yourself a Joel fan, you’ll be reading this.” –Newsday

“[T]he rollicking story of a Hicksville boy made good.” –Maura Johnston, Newsday

“Schruers clearly realizes he has gold in his interviews with Joel, his friends, paramours and confidants… [He delivers] insights on individual songs that will surprise even the most studied Joel fan…. [and] has given us the most complete look at Joel’s life and career to date.” –Dallas Morning News

[Billy Joel]
not only lives up to its subtitle, but has the strengths of both an autobiography and biography…. [It] will likely end up as the most complete tome on the Bard of Long Island, with the most access to its subject.” Houston Press

“[A] funny, revealing, and poignant look at [Joel’s] long career.” –Boston Globe

“Schruers’ account of Joel’s 1970s rise is fantastic, rich in anecdotes about the origins of different songs.” –Billboard

“[A] funny and revealing account of one of the most popular songwriters of our time.” New York Daily News
