WAGING HEAVY PEACE: A Hippie Dream, by Neil Young (Blue Rider Press). Forced to slow down after breaking a toe, Neil Young traded his guitar for a computer and spun this charismatic autobiography that, like Young, has little use for conventional rules. The revered artist who did stints in Buffalo Springfield; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; and Crazy Horse uses the phrase “OMG” and devotes as many pages to new audio technology and his train sets as to rock-history lore. At 66, Young shows little signs of fading out or burning away. (Credit: Handout)
