Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Though the Santana biography may be targeted at students, don't feel like it is exclusive to them. Weinstein's offering is a good primer for anyone interested in the guitarist's life."

Boise Weekly

"This biography of guitarist Carlos Santana is appropriate for high school students and above. The nine chapters describe the artist's early initiation into music through his family in Mexico, his now legendary Woodstock appearance and subsequent work with Columbia Records, his connection to Indian guru Sri Chinmoy, two marriages, his profound response to the deaths of Miles Davis and Stevie Ray Vaughan in the same year, and Santana's four decades (and counting) of musical output and experimentation."
