Really enjoyed it. You get a big insight of the Stones on tour. All about Ronnie Wood (good and bad) I also enjoyed all about Jo herself. She sounds a great fun lady and I felt sorry how Ronnie treated her in the later years of their married life. A very good read.

A nice read, well constructed and if you are interested in the "back stage" lifestyle of a Rolling Stone and his ex missus this is the book for you! I enjoyed it myself and Jo comes across as a nice person. She tells the tale of their breakup with no self pity or whinging. To be honest, and I'm a fan of Ronnie, she is probably better of without him, even if only half the stuff he did is true!

This is the story of a girl who’s definitely had more than her share of good fortune along the way, who went on to become the ultimate rock-chick. Living the rock 'n' roll dream of first class flights and top notch class As, she hung with arguably the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band on the planet and partied harder than a lot of the rest of us put together. But somehow she managed to walk away from the Rolling Stones' roller coaster after 30 years of fast living, relatively unscathed, and with her looks and health still pretty much in tact. She concedes from the get-go that she wasn't the brightest light at school - more out of a lack of interest than capability - and it’s clear that for anything lacking academically, she more than makes up for in street-smarts. It’s difficult not to like Jo. She’s the archetypal Bohemian survivor and you get a real sense of her authenticity in this autobiography. For someone who’s been sprinkled with a rather liberal quantity of stardust, she seems to take it all pretty much in her stride, nor is she afraid of a bit of hard graft. Let’s face it, you can’t help but admire a woman who’s matched not only Ronnie Wood, but also Keith Richards, drink for drink, for a number of years, while simultaneously raising a family and ensuring her husband makes it to the church on time for Rolling Stones’ gigs - regardless of her own level of consumption the previous night. When the cracks begin to appear in her marriage her sense of loss is palpable. For decades she and Ronnie had been inseparable and seemed like they’d go the distance. She bravely took it on the chin when she finally accepted it was over and testament to her strength of character, she determined to salvage a friendship with her ex, despite his increasingly public betrayals.Read more ›

I couldn't put this book down, it is packed with interesting, hilarious, sad and insightful stories. I had a few late nights thanks to Jo and her tales and am now exhausted. I highly recommend this book if you are interested in the life of others, how the music industry works, nostalgia and how to move on after the end of a relationship.
This is a well written honest account of the life of a fabulous, entertaining woman, who has gone from teenage London model, to young mum, to rock chick, to business woman, via drugs, co-dependency, illness and heartache. Her zest for life and determination is inspirational, I loved it.

This was easy to read, factual and interesting. Jo gave it her all, no smut, no crisies, no nasty tell-tales: just an easy story of an intersting, if not an easy life.
Jo has her family and her life, good on you girl.
Written in such a loyal way and plesant way. Write more Jo.

If you have ever wanted to know what its like to be married to a Rock Star, this is the book for you.

I really enjoyed this book in ways that surprised me. It was funny, very descriptive and gave me a real insight into life in those days.

Gosh what a lot of crazy fun she (and the Stones) had, but wow lots of awful downsides too. Its amazing what the human body can go through drink and drugs wise too! I thought I used to party hard!

After I put the book down, (I read the whole thing in a few days staying up late!) I felt like I really knew Jo and can sense what she is like. The book is very well written, in an honest and friendly way. I know sometimes celebs get ghost writers to write their books but I would be surprised if she did get much help with it.

I actually want to get my mum a copy of this because she loved the stones, and probably envied Jo and all the other rock wives throughout the years.

This book really made me aware of what we all know to be true but sometimes forget: that money can't buy a perfect life and guarantee lasting relationships and happiness. Stars and wealthy people still have times where things are just so hard and awful. They all are just like us really but get to travel in nicer cars and planes, live in bigger houses and have better clothes. But they still go through big ups and downs.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was so insightful, raw, honest and inspiring. Jo hasn't had life so easy all the time. I Love how she is so into organics and sustainable living and she's doing a lot of good in the world now with her platform.
