Here's What Readers Have To Say

ANDY NEWMARK
Drummer for Steve Winwood, John Lennon, David Bowie, Eric Clapton, Sly and the Family Stone, Nils Lofgren, Roxy Music and many others:
 

"...Your writing is excellent. Very heartfelt and easy to understand all the points you make. And your opinions as a songwriter and musician make the book have a real validity and gravitas. I'm enjoying your personal observations as much as reading about Steve's life. A writer must always expose a part of themselves in anything they write. 

 

All in all I'd say this is beautifully done. You've made what could have been simply a long list of facts, discography and names into something much more human. It has a warmth about it and that's because of you putting your thoughts into the book alongside "The Facts". Chuck Sullivan's take on Steve Winwood makes this a really good read."

JOSE NETO
Current guitarist for Steve Winwood:

"I really like the book and enjoyed reading it! You took an interesting approach of breaking down the songs, rhythm, lyrics and all the collaborative work. It really does give the idea of how wide and rich Steve’s musicality is!

 

Thanks for including me in the book as a big part of his latest phase and present music."

"I'm having a thrillingly interesting and elucidative time while reading the new book About Time: The Unsung Genius of Steve Winwood, by Chuck Sullivan --all about the wondrous gifts and wonderful career of Steve Winwood. Some friends and I blab a bit in there, but it's mostly an amazing collection of facts, fables, anecdotes and spot-on insights that I'm finding very difficult to put down!"

READERS ON AMAZON

"Writing in a highly readable, conversational style throughout
this door stopper of a tome (at 500+ pages, the large font helps), Mr. Sullivan – an accomplished drummer in the Washington, D.C. Area – combines a dedicated fan’s heartfelt admiration for his subject with a critical ear that frequently focuses on the rhythmic elements of Mr. Winwood’s body of work, from his R&B roots in the Spencer Davis Group to what Mr. Sullivan cleverly styles as the “folk funk”of Traffic, to the more recent Latin-influenced music that Mr. Winwood has explored over the last two decades..."

- Edward O' Connel

"Full disclosure: I am an amateur classical musician, hardly
an expert on anything rock & roll, but no one who grew up
in the '60s and '70s could have missed this music.... 
I picked up this book figuring the detail would be lost on me,
and wondering if there might be another reason to read it.
Much of the detail indeed flew by me, but I did find a reason,
maybethe best reason, to read to the end: passion. Sullivan's passion for Winwood's music and personal style just leaps off the page, and it's infectious...
It was a pleasure to hear an unsung genius so well sung."
