review 1: Very touching memoir written by his wife. Lots of things I didn't know about the man with enough love in his heart to write some of the most beautiful love songs ever recorded (Time in a Bottle, I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song). Didn't realize how much the recording company took advantage of him - he and his family should have had more money to work with in his lifetime! I enjoyed it and would recommend it to someone who would like to know more about him.
review 2: Was a huge Jim Croce fan in the early 1970's, but I'm kind of regretting that I read this bio of him. Written by his wife Ingrid, she does a good job describing the many years it ook for him to become an "overnight success". He certainly paid his dues and even after he was selling millions of r
... moreecords he was not really making any money, thanks to Cashman and West. As for Jim himself........Ingrid tells the raw truth regarding him. He almost comes off sounding bi-polar the way she describes him. I can't imagine her staying married to him, if hed not have died so unexpectedly when he did. The book just left me feeling kind of "blahh" when I was done. Kind of wish I hadn't read it. less
