's review

it was amazing

Don't listen to anyone who tells you this book is anything but worth reading.  As usual, John Lydon delivers the truth and, like it or not, if you can't handle what he's written here, you are still waiting for a bus that's not coming.  Anyone who grew up in Lydon's cohort, especially the dirt poor, downtrodden, and disenfranchised, will appreciate the candour and honesty in his look back on a life jammed with experience.  Those who were more comfortable with the Joe Strummer brand of pseudo-proletarian  philosophication will no doubt consider this another act of indulgent, self-gratification by the former Johnny Rotten.  But there is nothing written in these pages that does not set the record absolutely bang-on accurately straight about the Sex Pistols, punk, the music industry, social class, and the undiluted power of focused, purposeful wrath in changing the environment around you and the entire fucking universe.  If you've stopped believing in that possibility, then you're better off reading Noam Chomsky and listening to U2.
