Harry Shaw wrote a far more swaggering and lager-swilling A4 sized edition of Lemmy's wonderful yet barbed and acerbic views on life and the world titled 'Lemmy - In His Own Words' a couple of years ago, which was crammed full of pictures and much better value for money. This one's a bit like a lap-dance with a gorgeous chick, there's a lot of interest while the action's going on, but so much disappointment when it is all over far too quickly.
This is a small, A5 but hardbacked edition which, in some instances, has almost as much space on the pages as text, has no pictures other than on the cover, and is very poor value for money. Yes, Paul Brannigan is a good rock writer, a veteran of 'Kerrang! magazine, and his observations about Lemmy and his life at the beginning of every chapter are very good if not unexpected, and it also bolsters up this all-too-ailing page count.
But Lemmy Kilmister is a Living Legend and a Rock Icon, and deserves far better than this. He is also a larger-than-life character, and any books about him ought to match that persona. It's unofficial, too, so don't blame Lemmy for the rather poor show.

Lemmy is one of the few in the music scene that has something interesting, relevant and/or valuable to say when off-stage. His only rival is Tom Waits. The book was a fun, quick read. Most all of it I'd heard or read before, but it was arranged nicely. I recommend it for anyone who considers his/herself a true fan of Lemmy/Motorhead.

The man himself, Mr Kilmeinster (aka Lemmy) doing what he does best, talking about different subjects, and adding his own wit and comments, the only downside, i wish there was more pages....

Just a book of quotes really - many of which will already be familiar with, and some which will leave you wondering why they bothered to include them. There are some classics from the wit and wisdom of Lemmy though. An amusing book to read on the train or while sitting on the bog. Nice to get as a gift, but not really worth buying for yourself unless you see it REALLY cheap.
