I must admit before reading this book i was under the impression that Anthony Kiedis was a bit of an egotistical, pretty face whose autobiography would just be about how wonderful he was and what a fantastic lifestyle he has. I couldn't have been more wrong! This is an honest account of a troubled life, that tells in all detail of his life as a child with his drug dealing dad to his slow rise to fame. He goes into a lot of detail about his relationships and how he recognised his character flaws and knew how important it is to work through them. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would highly recommend it to anyone with an open mind and also anyone with substance misuse problems or if anyone you love has substance misuse problems.

I bought this book for my husband as he is a big RHCP fan, and while I'm not a massive fan myself, I thought it would be an interesting read.

The first half is very engrossing, even though Anthony Kiedis clearly had a very dysfunctional childhood he looks back on this with fondness, this is definitely not a misery memoir!

I felt the second half seemed to drag a bit, as Anthony was in a cycle of bad relationships /drugs /rehab. While it was a good insight into the mind of an addict, it did get repetitive, and the book became more about Anthony's addiction than the music (personally I would have liked more insights about his lyrics, the relationships between band members etc).

Also, a minor niggle, but I wished the photos in the book had been placed in a chronological order!

All in all, this was a good read, and perhaps will appeal more to people who like the band more. However I have read much more entertaining music autobiographies which dealt with similar issues in a more interesting way.
