Wondering what to buy for the job hunter in your life, or the retiree looking for what’s next this holiday season?

You could just send them on an escapist, rambling roll through Rolling Stone Keith Richards’ new memoir, Life, which might be a perfectly fine option, depending on the age and musical leanings of the recipient. He or she can glean a few guitar workshops, soak up the sixties and seventies with a raised brow and a sigh, and see how one still standing rocker cobbled together a rather wildly successful career.
