Ambiguous source attribution[edit]

The Interior, please tell me which statement(s) within The New York Times article support(s) the assertion that they 'approved of the affirmative, positive tone of Young's recollections'. Thank you.—John Cline (talk) 06:17, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Hey John. That bit reflected several statements towards the bottom of the Maslin piece, specifically: 'But “Waging Heavy Peace” has an affirmative spirit that is one of its most poignant qualities. The particular challenges that have faced Mr. Young and his wife, Pegi, in raising the son they call Ben Young, “our spastic, quadriplegic, nonverbal spiritual leader,” are discussed openly but without pathos.' and, 'Mr. Young has faced so many serious health crises of his own — polio, epilepsy, surgery for a brain aneurysm that prompted him to quickly record one of his most haunting albums, “Prairie Wind,” knowing that it might be his last — that he has learned not to accentuate the negative. But as for mistakes he has made, he treats “Waging Heavy Peace” as a chance to acknowledge them.' 14:35, 22 October 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. I don't know how I missed seeing that myself when reviewing the reference, but did. The reason I was looking to verify the statement was because 'positive' seems nearly redundant to 'affirmative' in its synonymous context; I was hoping perhaps 'optimistic' could be substituted. The source however, doesn't seem to imply optimism so its inclusion would stretch reasonable extrapolation into an arena of unsupportable synthesis. Notwithstanding these, the article is very well written and I am all the more better for having read it. Cheers.—John Cline (talk) 23:09, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Waging Heavy Peace: A Hippie Dream is the first autobiography by the rock musician Neil Young, published in 2012. Featuring a non-linear narrative, the book covers aspects of his career, family life, hobbies, and non-musical pursuits. It was generally well-received among critics.

Background[edit]

The book is Young's first autobiography and was written in 2011.[1] According to Jimmy McDonough in the 2002 biography Shakey, Young had previously stated he would not write about himself.[2] He explains his reasons for writing the book in a chapter called 'Why This Book Exists'. The 66-year-old musician states that the book is meant to make money to allow him a recuperation period away from touring and music-making.[3] Young, who suffered a brain aneurysm in 2005, mentions the possibility of dementia in his father's health history as providing an additional impetus for writing his memoirs.[3] The musician stopped drinking and smoking marijuana during the writing period.[4] Young declined a ghostwriter from his publisher – writing is a family trade: father Scott Young was a sports columnist and prolific writer.[4]

Contents[edit]

One focus of the work is Young's family. He discusses his two wives, including then-current wife Pegi and first wife Susan Acevedo as well as his relationship with Carrie Snodgress. He also talks about his children, including sons Ben and Zeke, who suffer from cerebral palsy.[2][4] Young's home, the northern California ranch called Broken Arrow, features in the book.[3]

Young's hobbies are discussed at length. He relates his love of model train building and his involvement with Lionel, LLC, a model train company, where he is a board member.[5] He talks about his interest in carpentry, and his forays into filmmaking.[5] Vehicles are another love, including his 1953 Buick Skylark and the electric-converted Lincoln Continental, known as LincVolt (Young is a proponent of electric vehicles and designed the LincVolt himself).[4] Yet another obsession is his PureSound audio system (now known as Pono), which aims to replace iPod as the dominant digital music format.[4]

In terms of his career, the book covers his early years as a performer in Canada, including his time with the Squires in Winnipeg, Manitoba.[5] Young's California days, his work in the 1980s with his charity the Bridge School Benefit, and the health problems of the 2000s also feature in the book.[5]

Reception[edit]

The book was generally received well, although with the caveat that it is more enjoyable for fans than for those unfamiliar with the artist.[1][5]The Guardian said the style was 'distinctly unplugged', and the direction 'unpredictable'.[4] The New York Times made comparisons to novelist Stephen King in terms of writing style, commented that the author 'seems completely free of guile', and approved of the affirmative, positive tone of Young's recollections.[3] Several reviewers made comparisons to Bob Dylan's autobiographical Chronicles: Volume One.[5] The New Orleans Times-Picayune called it 'a satisfying read for the true fan.'[5] The Los Angeles Times described it as 'sprawling, improvisational', 'a stream-of-consciousness-meditation', and calls it less a memoir than a self-portrait.[6] Canada's National Post called it a 'disarming, beguiling autobiography'.[1]
