I've not finished reading the book yet. But, it's of course as good and enjoyable as Part 1!  :D

Ich bin auch noch nicht durch, ist ja nunmal nicht meine Muttersprache und deshalb dauert es auch etwas länger. ;) Manches muß ich dreimal lesen, bevor ich es verstehe, aber das lohnt sich immer, gestern hatte ich z.B. ein Lachflash.
Wie buchstabiert man nochmal Amerka? Hamerika? Was heißt nochmal DTH? Einfach nur klasse! Sollte ich jemals in die USA reisen, nehme ich besser meine Reisetasche nicht mit. Am Ende werde ich noch verhaftet. ;D

I've just finished editing volume three and I'm very happy with the way it's turned out. Now it's just a question of getting all the final details ready for publishing and finding a suitable time to put it out. I'm sure it will appear this year, quite possibly in the next six months

Good news indeed. Especially as I was under the impression that there would not be another volume.  :)

Better late than never, there is a review of part 2 here:
http://louderthanwar.com/tv-smith-how-to-feel-human-book-review/

Excerpt:
Quote
The book is not about the internal struggle of the artist, but more about what he encounters on his travels. Time on his own is at a minimum, and instead he crashes in spare rooms, on couches, mattresses, (and even a masseuse table!), and quite often encountering inquisitive cats as he does so, (which would be fine, if he wasn’t allergic to them). His attention to detail paints vivid pictures of the places he visits and he engages with his surroundings and his audience in ways that pop stars complain that they can’t.  TV genuinely loves the reaction of the crowd, and despite times of shattering fatigue, on stage it all comes together.

‘How to Feel Human’ is a well written account of several years’ touring from a workaholic musician.  TV is without a doubt keeping alive the punk attitude that inspired him to move from Devon to London in the late seventies and form a band with his girlfriend.

A must for those who enjoyed volume one but also for those who enjoyed last year’s BBC documentary, as it compliments what the documentary taught us, and offers us further understanding as to why he continues to do what he does.
