Michael Nesmith's eclectic, electric life spans his star-making role on The Monkees , his invention of the music video, and his critical contributions to movies, comedy, and the world of virtual reality.

Above all, his is a seeker's story, a pilgrimage in search of a set of principles to live by. That search took Nesmith from a childhood in Dallas, where his single mother Bette invented Liquid Paper, to the set of The Monkees in Los Angeles; to the heart of swinging London with John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix; and to an unexpected oasis of brilliance in the Santa Fe desert, where his friendships with Douglas Adams and Los Alamos scientists would point him toward the power of the infinite and the endless possibilities of human connection. This funny, thoughtful, self-aware book is a window onto an unexpected life, inflected at every turn by the surprising candor and absurdist humor of an American original.

Opening Infinite Tuesday is like stepping into the world of Michael Nesmith, where something curious is always unfolding, and where riffs on everything from bands to dogs to the nature of reality make for an endlessly engaging journey.

Mike was always my favourite Monkee, had tons of talent. But he found out that one has to have business smarts, as well, and he definitely had some tough times. What an interesting life! I knew he'd invented the music video, and the book spends some time on that. But it's his music I like to remember, both with the Monkees and later on - he and Mickey even did a show in Toronto in June/18!

Infinite Tuesday is Michael Nesmith's autobiographical look at his life, career and spiritual journey. He touches on the people in his journey, including The Monkees, his mother, his first wife Phyllis, Jack Nicholson and more with humor, thoughtful insight and extremely frank honesty. Monkees fans might be disappointed that he doesn't dwell more on the group, but the book is about Nesmith's life journey of which the Monkees were just a part of the journey. It's a wonderful book with revealing insight on the man. A definite must have for fans of Michael Nesmith.

Papa Nez is a great writer. His book is engaging and entertaining, but, man, does it hurt to have your eyes opened and your idol brought down by his own admissions and truth.
