I recently went on a vacation to the Hawaiian islands. While there, I continued to hear the music of IZ. I wanted to learn a little more about the man behind the beautiful music; so when I returned home, I purchased this book on Amazon. The book is a great mix of photos and information. I enjoyed learning about a man with a true gift, that had his life cut way too short. I suggest you not only purchase this book, but look into his music as well, you will be pleased with both.
wonderful story about IZ! Great insight into his past.
