Wonderful, funny and inspiring
on 7 June 2014
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. I think if anyone is going through a rough patch out there, perhaps you have broken up with your husband then you might find solace in this book to help you find inspiration to really get to know yourself and to realise its not the end, it's the beginning! You can change the future in this instant!
I know if I ever saw Jo in the street, I could go up and say hi. She just seems like that kind of person.
