During the writing of the book, Navarro had a photobooth installed and anyone who came by his Hollywood home had to go in the booth. As a result, those pictures are scattered all over the pages of the book - glamour and debauchery all the way!
I'd recommend this to anyone who's interested in the rock'n' roll lifestyle - especially from a personal viewpoint. If you loved The Dirt and The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell, you'll enjoy this.
The parts written by Strauss however are an interesting read and give a good insight into the dark self-destructive world of Navarro.
Dave had a photo-booth installed in his house while the book was being written,and everyone that entered the house had to have photos taken for the book.All the photos are the best part of the book but it would have been nice to know who the photos are of, as I found myself reading about people who are in the book but not being able to put a face to those people who are being written about because the photos are so random.
Overall this book is worth reading its a bit slow in parts but is still a good read.
