Country singer and songwriter Willie Nelson recounts the ups and downs of his career and his personal life, and shares the lyrics of some of his compositions.

Blackwell North Amer
If you had to give America a voice, it's been said more than once, that voice would be Willie Nelson's. For more than fifty years, he's taken the stuff of his life - the good and the bad - and made from it a body of work that has become a permanent part of our musical heritage and kept us company through the good and the bad of our own lives. Long before he became famous as a performer. Willie Nelson was known as a songwriter, keeping his young family afloat by writing songs - like "Crazy" - that other people turned into hits.
So it's fitting, and cause for celebration, that he has finally set down in his own words a book that does justice to his great gifts as a storyteller. In The Facts of Life, Willie Nelson reflects on what has mattered to him in life and what hasn't. He also tells some great dirty jokes. The result is a book as wise and hilarious as its author. It's not meant to be taken seriously as an instruction manual for living, but you could do a lot worse.
