I found this book a little boring. John Holmes is a complex character and you can't help feeling sorry for him. His decent into cocaine addiction is a little harrowing. He could and should have been a wealthy man but the people he was associated with made sure he couldn't break his habit.

The really sad story of the man with the huge penis-the Elvis of the porn world, so there is more white powder than there are white suits. Hollywood is drenched in misery and exploitation so it all seems very real and grim and far from the sugar sweet pornworld of Boogie Nights.
