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


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).
