Currently reading Garcia by Jackson. I just ordered Phil's book a few days ago and when that gets here and I finish Jackson's book I will start on it.

I read "Home Before Daylight" by Steve Parrish. Most Deadheads would enjoy this book because Steve Parrish (longtime roadie and close friend of Jerry Garcia) does a great job of telling interesting stories through an equally interesting perspective. This book shows you how human the Grateful Dead were. Definitely worth reading if you decide to look beyond the music.

Box Of Rain is also a good book, but it's good in a non-story kind of way. I didn't know that Mexicali Blues was written in Middletown, Connecticut until I read this book...

Man, I've read several. I just finished "Searching for the Sound" and about to reread "Garcia: An American Life" - which I think is my favorite next to Dennis McNally's "What a Long Strange Trip"....
