In the New York Times Best Seller “Good Vibrations: My Life As A Beach Boy” (or in the audiobook by the same name which Mike narrates), we get to hear the story of the Beach Boys from the perspective of Mike Love. We learn about the many ups and downs the band faced throughout their career and how they came upon success.

As a founding member of the Beach Boys, Mike Love has spent an extraordinary fifty-five years, and counting, as the group’s lead singer and principal lyricist. The Beach Boys, from their California roots to their international fame, are a unique American story — one of overnight success and age-defying longevity; of musical genius and reckless self-destruction; of spirituality, betrayal, and forgiveness — and Love is the only band member to be part of it each and every step.

If you want to get a little taste of what the book has to offer, then be sure to listen to a short excerpt from the audio book here. If you prefer to have a physical copy of the book then get it at Penguin Random House Books online (Hardcover, AudioBook or eBook), (Kindle, Hardcover or Paperback Book ), Walmart (Hardcover Book) or Barnes & Noble (Hardcover Book).

An Inside Look Of The Life Of A Beach Boy As Narrated By Mike Love; Perfect Read For This Holiday Season

good20vibrations20audio20cover_zps0susmvk0

In the book “Good Vibrations: My Life As A Beach Boy” (or in the audiobook by the same name which Mike narrates), Mike Love tells his own story for the first time, of how a sheet-metal apprentice became the quintessential front man for America’s most successful rock band, singing in more than 5,600 concerts in 26 countries. Love also narrates the stories behind his lyrics for pop classics such as “Good Vibrations” (which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year), “California Girls,” “Surfin’ USA,” and “Kokomo.”

When we all listened to the Beach Boys, every conjured image was that of charmed lives, happy go lucky existence, carefree life, beaches and sunshine. Mike’s journey was for the most part happy, but the challenges that came along with the Beach Boys fame was not always so.

Both the book and audiobook have been on the New York Best Seller List since a week after release. Check out an audio preview here .  Get it at Penguin Random House Books online  (Hardcover, AudioBook or eBook) , Amazon (Kindle, Hardcover or Paperback Book ), Walmart (Hardcover Book) or Barnes & Noble (Hardcover Book).
