"Focusing on what Johnny Cash means to Americans, rather than recounting a straightforward biography or offering traditional music criticism, this book makes the argument that Cash simultaneously embodies the existential search for authenticity at the heart of 1950s American culture and the postmodern self-consciousness about performing the self that characterized late twentieth-century culture." -- Barbara Ching

2.0 von 5 Sternen An opportunity missed, but he sure could write a lot of words 12. September 2014
Von nathaniel lathy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A book is an academic exercise when the author uses the term "organizing principles," which I've never seen before in a musical biography. I would have liked to have seen a more journalistic approach. Also it would have been better to have more dicussion about Cash's music than an endless discussion about the authenticity of his image. It was disappointing to see Silverman go to such great lengths to tell us despite his fan base the singer was politically liberal. More discussion about the benefits of his conservative appeal would have been better. A Cash book should have been more family friendly throughout.
It seemed odd the author went to great lengths to point out the inaccuracies of the movie Walk the Line. It seems unlikely he would have written the book had it not been for the film. Maybe he should have pondered further the appeal of a film about the man in black before writing the book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Johnny Cash is a walking contradiction,partly truth and partly fiction."... Kris Kristofferson 11. Januar 2014
Von Jerry Guild - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I found this book a very different and interesting read.I have read several books about Johnny Cash and June Carter,and found them all very interesting.I have been a Cash fan ever since he started in the music business in the early 50'sand still enjoy the many songs he recorded.I saw him in Montreal way back when he brought the Statlers with him as an opening act; and later on here in Toronto when June Carter and their son John accompanied him .It is an understatement to say that being a fan of the Cashes and the Carters has been full of surprises as well as enjoyment over the years.
Cash's music has varied greatly over the years,and his life experiences have been even more so.To say that he was a Legend,is also an understatement.
When I first heard Kristofferson describe him ,as he did in my title;I really believed he summed up Johnny Cash as well as anyone could,and he probably knew and understood Cash and his musuc as well any person.
This book is real different from anything else I've read that tries to explain Cash ,his music and why he was such an icon.
I would say that this is a very studious book,in that the author must have done a huge amount of research on all the things that have been written or recorded about Cash.There are 24 pages of notes detailing the sources of information the author must have gathered perused and/or read.This alone,must have been a monumental task,and then to use it all to write this book.I also had the feeling that the author had never met Cash,nor spent much time with family or musicians who worked with and knew Cash intimately.An awful lot has been recorded about Cash over the years,and if you have followed Cash as long as I have,there is not too much in this book that will be new or surprising to you.
What the author does is take all this information and sort it out into nine choices that Cash made in both his personal life and career that resulted in him having one of the most interesting careers in music;and why he was so popular with such a wide spectrum of musical interests.
Even if you've read a lot about Johnny Cash and June Carter;you should find this a very interesting attempt to explain them.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Johnny Cash has far surpassed being another folk singer, he's become a legend of music 15. Februar 2011
Von Midwest Book Review - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Johnny Cash has far surpassed being another folk singer, he's become a legend of music. "Nine Choices: Johnny Cash and American Culture" traces the Man in Black's constant struggles through his career, a storm of rising mainstream success, his own personal demons, and the world that was rapidly changing faster than he could understand it. But through it all, his music and his thought allowed him to grasp his legendary status, and "Nine Choices" explores his legend thoroughly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The 10th Choice: Buy This Book 25. Oktober 2010
Von B. Palin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Silverman reads the complicated text of "Johnny Cash" with humor, love, and deep fascination. The author is curious why so many people from so many different backgrounds who like (and hate) so much music all love The Man In Black. Nine Choices is part biography, part cultural studies, and part Americana. It's a story about how a man--the perfect metaphor for the country he lives in--invents and reinvents his authentic self at every turn.
