I was never the biggest Motley fan, more into rhcp/g n r/led zeppelin etc. But! This book was freakin incredible, and even better for listening to the man himself Sixx read it to you. Don't forget that you are listening to his own diary entries so it's not in typical flowing style, but I would listen to him as I walked around my serene little city in NZ and marvel at the things hes lived and literally died through. What a legend, definitely a great experience for anyone, but perhaps people dealing with addictions because as you hear his own words that he penned during the depths of his addictions, and how he pulled through you gotta know there's hope for anyone. My only critique is the womans voice, yeesh. I know kiwi chicks don't have the same preppy tones as Americans but yeah... it was a struggle to listen to her parts, which was annoying because they were covering his mothers and his serious ex-partner who added a lot of value. Still, it was awesome, would recommend it to a lot of people.

Just a really good story

Courtenay was true to his style of starting out extreme slowing down and letting the story unwind and then ending with a shock. I loved this story😊 highly recommended but beaware of high running emotions

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

love Bowers performance, he brings every character to life. There's a lot of similar themes to power of one but still a really enjoyable story with important messages and a great insight into south Africas culture.
