Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl’s memoir, The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music (10.5 hours), is as raw and unfiltered as his music.

The two-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, guitarist and drummer reads his book in a gruff, sometimes hoarse voice, discussing his lifelong passion for music, his rock influences, his early experiences in Nirvana and the thrill of standing center stage before 50,000 screaming fans. Largely self-taught, Grohl explains how his life has been and will forever be defined by sound, “like an unfinished mixtape waiting to be sent.” His love for making music, which he describes as being in his DNA, is surpassed only by the pride he expresses in his daughter’s fledgling interest in rock music.

If you love the Foo Fighters’ signature wall of sound, you’ll find Grohl’s delivery of his life story to be intensely upbeat and inspiring.
