The first book to analyze Joni Mitchell's controversial life, career, songs and the strange times they so exactly chronicle. For those of us who feel that Joni Mitchell is the world's greatest living artist, AND the greatest Canadian who's ever lived, this book would seem to be a must-read. Sadly, this biography contains so many errors, both in fact and typography, that any longtime fan of Joni's will become annoyed fairly quickly. All of which is not to say that Ms. Mitchell's legion of fans will not enjoy reading Brian Hinton's effort. Joni makes for a fascinating subject, and her life has been as full of incident as any celebrity's out there.

I wanted to be out of towns and away from excitement. I only wanted to lie on my back under a tree and read a book or draw a picture, and not worry about being jumped or carrying a blade or ending up married to some scatterbrained broad with no sense. The country would be like that, I thought dreamily. I would have a yeller cur dog, like I used to, and Sodapop could get Mickey Mouse back and ride in all the rodeos he wanted to, and Darry would lose that cold, hard look and be like he used to be, eight months ago, before Mom and Dad were killed.

For those of us who feel that Joni Mitchell is the world's greatest living artist, AND the greatest Canadian who's ever lived, this book would seem to be a must-read. Sadly, this biography contains so many errors, both in fact and typography, that any longtime fan of Joni's will become annoyed fairly quickly. All of which is not to say that Ms. Mitchell's legion of fans will not enjoy reading Brian Hinton's effort. Joni makes for a fascinating subject, and her life has been as full of incident as any celebrity's out there. Still, one turns the last page of this book feeling that there should've been more; that we still don't know what makes Joni "tick"; that there are huge gaps that have gone unrecorded. Mr. Hinton, having been limited, schoolboy fashion, by what the libraries and old publications could provide, and not having done ANY original interviews himself, sheds no light on Joni that hasn't been shed before. He merely provides the useful service of compiling dozens of old articles and interviews and putting them together in a nice, readable order. And while it is always interesting to hear another Mitchell fan's views on her work, Hinton's interpretations, while at times dead-on and insightful, are often strained and ludicrous. (Are we really to believe, for example, that in Joni's painting for the front cover of "Clouds," the flower is "a cross between a lily and a poppy...some kind of Canadian hybrid, or a plant invented by Mitchell herself, playing God," and thus her way of offering us a clue to the album's theme: paradox? On the up side, there are some anecdotes that I, a Joni fan of some 25 years, had never heard before, but these nuggets are more than counterbalanced by the remarkable carelessness with which the book has been put together. The errors in this book are legion!!! Space does not permit me to go into the dozens and dozens of goofs, but any longtime fan of Ms. Mitchell's will quickly spot them. So when all is said and done, Hinton's work remains a book that all Joni's fans should read and get annoyed at. Any of these fans will enjoy the book up to a point, as long as they don't go in expecting the work of, say, a Donald Spoto. Ms. Mitchell deserves THAT kind of treatment, but, to paraphrase the words of another great songwriter, Sammy Cahn, this will have to do until the real thing comes along...

In starting this book I had such high hopes and expectations - especially given its billing as the "first" full length book to examine Joni's art and life. But almost immediately I was disappointed, confused, and even offended by what a disgraceful work this is.
There are many reasons to fault this book but chief among them are its virtually endless stream of gratuitous (and obnoxious) opinions, its numerous irrelevant passages, and its many erroneous or questionable "facts". What was often most difficult to read were the "critiques" of the selections on each of her albums. More often than not it seemed hard to believe that this man had any appreciation of, knowledge of, or feeling for her music; at times one wondered whether he was just making up these "analyses".
His sense of the historical background and cultural milieu was comparably incredulous. Either he hates most of what the epochs (from the sixties onward) represented and/or he managed to live through them basically clueless all the while.
He seems to have a rather jaded attitude toward Joni herself. A biography need not be favorable to be accurate or fair. Yet he seems to have managed to craft a rather jarring triumverate of failings: he's inaccurate, unfair, and unsympathetic!
The photos comprise one of the few positive aspects of the book. Despite all the negative aspects I've enunmerated, I've kept my personal copy. Maybe I'll eventually reread it.....at which time I will hope to find it less obnoxious, offensive, and uninformative.

This is the most badly-written, poorly researched biography I have ever read. Brian Hinton calls himself a "fan" - but he clearly invested little effort in detailing the life of one of the most important song-writers in the history of music. The vast majority of this book are quick summaries of her songs, and detailed accounts of her touring schedule. It is boring beyond comprehension.

There is a DVD called, "Joni Mitchell - Woman of Heart and Mind". It is a Canadian made documentary and it's very good. Hinton obviously saw the film, as he borrows nearly all of his quotes from it verbatim. I cannot believe Joni Mitchell authorized such a shoddy and appallingly-written rag such as this.

It's ironic (and perhaps moronic) that Hinton should choose none other than Joni Mitchell as a subject for a biography. Not only is Mitchell one of the most gifted and literate songwriters of the 20th Century, she is also one of the most iconoclastic, as well...shunning publicity that most 'rock stars' consume with a spoon. And its these circumstances which point out the failings in this dismal read: Hinton can't write and what he has written are quotes of Mitchell herself when she has deigned to submit to personal interviews. It's appalling that the publisher went ahead with such a shoddy and thoroughly uninformative book about one of the great pop icons of our century.

A real mess. Anyone who has followed Ms. Mitchell's career will easily pick out the numerous and frequently gross errors. Not much more than a compendium of "fanzine" and other magazine and newpaper articles printed about Ms. Mitchell during the past thirty years. If you have a computer, don't bother with this book: just go to the Joni Mitchell Homepage where you'll find accurate and well-written information regarding everything you ever wanted to know about Joni!!
