The 'engaging, emotional, funny and surprising' (JJ Abrams) memoir of the electronic music and technology pioneer Thomas Dolby
Thomas Dolby became one of the most recognizable figures of the synth pop movement of early-80s new wave. He played synth on Foreigner's 4, Def Leppard's Pyromania and Joan Armatrading's Walk Under Ladders and supported David Bowie at Live Aid. He also wrote the score for Fever Pitch. His last studio album was 2011's A Map of the Floating City, which featured guest appearances from Mark Knopfler, Regina Spektor, Imogen Heap, and others. He lives in Suffolk.

[Dolby's] journey is as amazing as the book is well written. From start to finish, I thoroughly enjoyed every page. Brilliant. -- Henry Rollins
This warm and immensely readable book will appeal to anyone interested in machine-driven Eighties pop or the dotcom revolution. -- Mark Ellen * The Mail on Sunday *
