*One of Rolling Stone's 10 Best Music Books of 2015* An exhilarating and intimate account of the life of music legend Tom Petty, by an accomplished writer and musician who toured with Petty No one other than Warren Zanes, rocker and writer and friend, could author a book about Tom Petty that is as honest and evocative of Petty's music and the remarkable rock and roll history he and his band helped to write. Born in Gainesville, Florida, with more than a little hillbilly in his blood, Tom Petty was a Southern shit kicker, a kid without a whole lot of promise. Rock and roll made it otherwise. From meeting Elvis, to seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan, to producing Del Shannon, backing Bob Dylan, putting together a band with George Harrison, Dylan, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne, making records with Johnny Cash, and sending well more than a dozen of his own celebrated recordings high onto the charts, Tom Petty's story has all the drama of a rock and roll epic. Now in his mid-sixties, still making records and still touring, Petty, known for his reclusive style, has shared with Warren Zanes his insights and arguments, his regrets and lasting ambitions, and the details of his life on and off the stage. This is a book for those who know and love the songs, from "American Girl" and "Refugee" to "Free Fallin'" and "Mary Jane's Last Dance," and for those who want to see the classic rock and roll era embodied in one man's remarkable story. Dark and mysterious, Petty manages to come back, again and again, showing us what the music can do and where it can take us.

Tom Petty: Rock'N'Roll Guardian is the first intimate portrait of one of rock’s most enduring figures. After shaky beginnings with his first band, Mudcrutch, the boy from northern Florida founded Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers in 1976. The band’s third album, Damn The Torpedoes, went multi-platinum and Tom Petty was on course to become the rock ’n’ roll fan who revered its fifties pioneers while building a career that spawned its own future classic rock ’n’ roll songs. Tom Petty has sold over 60 million records but his rise to superstardom was never a foregone conclusion. Mudcrutch, his home-grown band from Gainesville in Florida, self-destructed soon after it relocated to Los Angeles. Next, Petty and Mudcrutch alumni Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench regrouped with two other ex-Gainesville musicians, Stan Lynch and Ron Blair, to form Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Building an audience was an uphill battle from the beginning. Misidentified as a New Wave band they soon fell out with their label over their contract, Petty was made bankrupt and not until Damn The Torpedoes did they hit the big time. Even then new dramas threatened to cloud the band’s future although Tom Petty’s predisposition to find trouble was more than matched by his steely determination to overcome it. He was also touched by personal loss, including the deaths of Roy Orbison, George Harrison and Heartbreakers bassist Howie Epstein. He pressed on and endures as a champion of the music and the code of ‘keep on keeping on’. Songs like ‘American Girl’, ‘The Waiting’ and ‘I Won’t Back Down’ touch people from all walks of life because what Petty sings about – love won, love lost and hardship overcome. Born too late to be in the vanguard of rock’n’roll first time round, he has nonetheless proved a truly memorable keeper of the flame. This is his story...

The first comprehensive intellectual biography of William Petty (1623-1687), using both printed and manuscript sources. Petty was a key figure in the English colonization of Ireland, the institutionalization of experimental science, and early social science. McCormick examines Petty's intellectual development and his invention of 'political arithmetic' against the backdrop of the scientific revolution and the political upheavals of the Interregnum and Restoration.He argues that political arithmetic was less a form of analysis than a program of social engineering designed to instil industry and loyalty in the English and Irish populations, and traces its transformation after Petty's death into an apparently apolitical form of statistical reasoning.
