Just finished the book "Strange Things Happen: A Life with The Police, Polo, and Pygmies" by Stewart Copeland. I Highly recommend the audio version which is read by Stewart himself. It is one of the best books I have heard in a long time. Not only is Stewart very entertaining as a reader of his story but the stories are amazing. You also get a real look inside a reality show (Stewart was the Judge on one) a Super Tour, and life with Pygmies. (yes, Pygmies..) Not to mention his very astute writings and observations about being a film composer. I would recommend book to budding film composers on this basis alone. While this is not the *focus* of the book, it is what he has been doing professionally for the last several years. Yep, this guy has lived a little. Guaranteed Fun!
