'Rotten... captures the rancid flavour of Lydon's punk and pre-punk life... a good read' --The Guardian, January 31, 2004
Lydons story is one of struggle and an almost foolhardy courage... for sheer eye-of-the-storm authenticity, this is hard to beat.' --Kerrang!, January 24, 2004
This autobiography remains ten years since it was first written a nihilistic, gross-out masterpiece. --NME, January 24, 2004

The main problem here is that JL whilst being the most intelligent of the Pistols and probably of the punk movement in general right from it's start before it was even termed 'punk', is at the same time completely disingenuous and somewhat 'liberal with the veracite'. It's also ghostwritten. He should take the time to write it himself.
Its still a decent document of the period but it is quite sinful that a book like this, published in 2003, is out of print in the UK in 2014. It could do with updating to post-PiL stuff in a re-published new edition.
And its worth leaving with a quote
"All I offer to others is their own individuality. Grab it! The rave crowd call it freedom. They pay a fortune for the drugs to maintain this idiocy, and it's all manipulated by seriously bad promoters and evil-minded deejays. It's hypnotic, trance-like. It's enjoyable but not the be-all, end-all. Unfortunately the kids will come out the end very frustrated."
I still like him - the loveable young / old rogue!
Gives a few reasons for his words and actions. Enlightening in that respect, also rather funny in parts.
