A better title would have been a "Year in the Life of a self-absorbed, drug-addled, whining rockstar." The book isn't awful. Nikki Sixx has some decent writing chops, but so much of the book is taken up with the same defeatist, whining, self-hatred that by the fifth or sixth month of it, you find yourself skipping over the boring entries. One of the book's saving graces is its format - the addition of "after the fact" notes from a variety of people makes the stories so much more interesting. Hearing how Tommy Lee remembered the same thing that Nikki wrote about while being high, for example, gives you a really shocking look into the delusion of today's addicts. Borrow this one; don't buy it.
