Bruford's autobiog is a mixture of recollection and thinking-out-loud, both on the music industry and music/artistic creation in general.
It details his life and career (though mostly the latter, there is not much personal gush) in more or less chronological order, in that he starts off young and ends up retired, but as a narrator flits back and forth in time, so that a section on Yes in 1972 may be followed immediately by a reflection on something similar that happened in the 80s or 90s, before getting back to the original story.
I found it interesting and informative, though it is perhaps less autobiography than semi-scholarly work on the "state of music", with all the references to academic and critical writings.
Nonetheless, it was good to find out in between just how he got that cymbal sound on One More Red Nightmare!
