Ok - first off, this review is based on the Kindle edition of the latest book from the tortured pen of Mr. Nikki Sixx. As the book includes a ton of images from the dirty lens of Sixx himself, you immediately lose some of the impact that is obviously present in the printed version, instead they are relegated to nothing more than business card sized black & white images. However, this is the price you pay for digital versions of books. None the less, the images are still clear and you're not struggling to see what the hell is going on in each shot.
Anyway, this is being touted as a 'rock n' roll self help book', so don't expect lurid tales of sex, drugs & rock n' roll (if you want that, pick up Sixx's other NY Times bestselling book 'The Heroin Diaries' or the Crüe's band autobiography, the most awesome 'The Dirt'), although there is some dirt rubbed into the cracks in this book. To be honest, it was different to what I was expecting, but given time to think about it, Sixx is perfectly positioned to speak about self-help after being in a self proclaimed mental minefield for 20 years. There are nuggets of good information here, but you take out of it whatever you want - he has just put on paper what has tried to do to better himself over recent years. All this interweaved by the aforementioned photography and personal tales of enlightenment.
Sixx does not preach. What he does do is tell you to basically grab life by the throat, live life by your own rules and be inspired. By anything.
