full-length videobook for “Your Music and People”


Today I’m releasing something I’ve been working on since 2019.

It’s a full-length animation for my book “YOUR MUSIC AND PEOPLE”. 2½ hours long, it contains the entire audiobook, animated throughout.

Hand-drawn by the great Patrick Smith over the last two years.

Translated (by native speakers) into Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Tagalog, Tamil, Thai, Turkish, and Ukrainian. The video has all the subtitles.

It’s available for instant streaming on my site, or an MP4 download (3GB) to keep forever and play on any device.

All you have to do is buy “YOUR MUSIC AND PEOPLE” through me at Because any book bought directly from me, for $15, includes all formats: ebook, audiobook, and now videobook.

Here are two chapters, as a preview:

Also, one chapter per day, for the next 88 days, (September through December 2022) will be released on this YouTube playlist.
