Review

"Funny, self-deprecating and a whole lot less boastful than he could be, Mr. Stewart offers a string of Grade-A rock 'n' roll debauchery stories and...makes them charming." -"The New York Times
"
"The best news about Stewart's autobiography is that it revives the rollicking humor and self-deprecating personality of his early career. It takes the jolly perspective of a guy who knows he's one of the world's luckiest men, and the result proves infectious." "-New York Daily News
"
"In an action-packed memoir, Stewart explains how he survived the excesses of Seventies rock stardom...full of bad behavior and enough ex-wives to fill an entire soccer side." "--Rolling Stone"
"A he-said romp through a five-decade music career that spawned a string of enduring pop classics...[Stewart is] an entertaining storyteller who admits that at age 67 he still spends time on that bottle-blond, high-maintenance hair. We love him for that." "-The Tampa Bay Times

"Unsurprisingly, Rod Stewart has a few stories to tell...The singer tells them in a charming, often humble and self-deprecating, and always entertaining fashion throughout "Rod, "his autobiography....A moving read." "-The Buffalo News

"Looking at the fall release schedule and seeing memoirs slated from Pete Townshend and Neil Young, who would have tipped Rod Stewart as being the rock graybeard most likely to produce the best book? But he did. "Rod: The Autobiography "(Crown) is a warm, roguish reminiscence. More playful than Townshend's at times ponderous "Who I Am" and far more insightful than Young's numbing "Waging Heavy Peace," Stewart's memoir has much of the joyful, big-hearted raffishness of the singer's classic early '70s recordings. (It's more "Mandolin Wind" than "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy?" -- or anything else of his from the last 35 years or so.) The book is a fun, rollicking read." --Spin.com

Top notch witty writing makes this autobiography a pleasure to read. Rod Stewart has had such a brilliant life and his book covers everything from his early days with the Jeff Beck Group and The Faces, all of the ladies in his life, childhood exploits, hobbies and family to his music career up until now. Packed with loads of stories, many which are simply hilarious, I would have thought any Rod fan or anyone just wanting to read a decent celeb memoir for that matter, will be delighted with this book - I certainly am, and I am sure it will be popped into many a stocking this Christmas.

Gotta give Rod creditafter Keith Richards book this an entertaining and well written book, it's certainly more honest about his musical shortcomings than many other such books and when he writes about the (many) loves of his life he shows he has real respect and feelings for the more permanent fixtures in his life. All in all a book to enjoy if you are a fan or not

I got this book because I had read some really good reviews. I am slightly disappointed because of them! Do not get me wrong this is an entertaining book written in an engaging cheeky chappie style and has its moments of amusement, I just found that for me there was a little too much leggy blond stories and to few music ones. I must admit I grew tired of often samey stories of meeting stunning blond, bedding stunning blond and dumping stunning blond for another stunning blond! I enjoyed the early days part of the book far more than the superstar status part of the book which is strangely how I am with his music as well.

Having been a fan of Rod Stewart for many years I couldn't wait to read his Autobiography and I wasn't disappointed. I believe that Rod has given an honest 'warts and all' account of his life and his anecdotes about his time on the road as a rock star were extremely funny. For Rod Stewart fans this is a must to read but even if you're not this book is an interesting account of a man who has been in the music business for over forty years and is still performing and making albums.

I've enjoyed his voice very much over the years, and wondered who he really was, a talented song stylist, a rock & roll hippie, Rod the Mod! Rod the Bod, Rod the tabloid twit, Rod the love Rat, the sensitive troubadour? Turns out he's all of these and many more, like most of us, he isn't all good or all bad,, but on the whole he seems to me to be a rounded man with a love of life and for his complicated family that suggests he's got his priorities right in the end. I'd like to know him, and I think he'd be a good mate, and I'm pretty picky on that score!

I am a big fan of Rods but not a fan of autobiographies so put off reading this for a while. I am glad I did get round to it as it is very well written and entertaining. I find this book easy to recommend as the subject matter is interesting and the storytelling very enjoyable.

After seeing a documentary on Rod I decided his book might be worth a read, plus my boyfriend is always going on about how he sits near him at the Celtic games! It was an interesting read and I learned things I never knew about him. I knew he was a bit of a womanizer, but then it shocked me when he said he remained faithful to Rachel Hunter for the 9 years of their marriage. His love of fine art, model railways, cars and leggy blondes was revealed in his honest self deprecating style. A fun read. I will say this though, what I did come away with after reading this was how tight with money Rod is!!!
