One would imagine that a songwriter as popular as Burt Bacharach would need no further introduction, but that apparently is not true. This revealing autobiography shows that the quiet, self-effacing man behind those 73 Top 40 hits is far more fascinating than we imagined. Anyone Who Had a Heart seems to have borrowed its title from one of his famous songs, but it accurately reflects the vulnerability of a talented man who suffered the breakup of three marriages and the suicide of a beloved daughter. The book also offers telling glimpses into his collaborations with his longtime partner Hal David, Neil Diamond, Elvis Costello, and others. An inviting photo section; a pleasant surprise.
