Product Description

From Booklist

A lad discovers that he can walk between alternate Earths—and is swept up in a war between them in this fast-paced, compulsively readable tale. Joey gets lost in his own house, but when he steps into a patch of fog and finds himself in a world where he died, a trillion Earths lie open to him—arranged in a vast arc, with an empire of science-based planes at one end and a realm where magic rules at the other. Recruited into an army of anything-but-identical Joeys gathered from many of these worlds and charged with maintaining the balance of power, Joey picks up companions both human and non as he travels the multidimensional In Between that links the sprawling "Altiverse." In this first of what could and should be many episodes, Joey finishes his basic training by doing battle with melodramatically evil magic workers Lord Dogknife and Lady Indigo. Vivid, well-imagined settings and characters compensate for weak links in the internal logic of this rousing sf/fantasy hybrid.

Format: Hardcover
Steven Adler is smart, he really is, he's smart by being fully aware that he's a has-been and he says it himself in the beginning of the book. Here's another thing; he's really a nice guy. His story is an interesting one and he tells it like it is, he knows he screwed up big time on many occasions in his life and that he did a lot of damage to those whore cared and loved him. Steven did abused alcohol and drugs, but then again many GN'R members did. However, probably no one suffered more from it than Adler did. I always felt sorry for Adler because he was the only one smiling in the Guns N'Roses videos and he would always sign autographs and seem to have a good time, he truly enjoyed the rockstar life to the fullest. Adler really is a fan who got to be a rockstar and hang out and meet many of his idols like Steven Tyler and Aerosmith, he himself loves the fans and knows what it's like to be one and that's appealing to the readers. He was the original drummer in Guns N'Roses and that counts for something, right? I didn't rush out when My Appetite For Destruction was released but Adler's got a story to tell and his book is worth is reading if you're a fan.

I remember reading Slash's 2007 autobiography, which was really good, and reading in the autobiography about Adler and what he was like. I can say that after reading this book Slash was right in his portrayal of Adler in his own bio. Steven is really this trippy, joyful character but drugs played a big role in his life and ruined a lot of things for him. I'm glad that's been doing much better lately and that he received the help and support he needed to get over his addictions and problems.

As one of the biggest GNR fans on the planet (I've seen them 10 times, own countless bootlegs, all the disks, and have met AXL!) I feel I'm a pretty good judge on what is good and what is not. I've read every book published on the band and probably 90% of the interviews they've done.

Steven's book is a good read. It gives you a great look into the madness that went along with being the drummer in one the biggest bands in the world. You definitely get the impression he was/is just a happy go lucky 15 year old for life. Some great tales are recounted in this book that I haden't heard before and his side of his departure is interesting, albeit it I wouldn't necessarily trust his perspective on the matter.

In the end you feel sorry for the guy. If given more of a chance he probably could have helped make the illusions a greater disks. Sadly, the book after he got kicked out of GNR was a bit of a bore. I got high, I messed up, I got high, I messed up... repeat. Shocking one body could endure so much damage and still be with us.

If your a gnr fan this book is a must but I wouldn't necessarily believe everything in here is the truth. 3 solid stars

I wasted my money on this book! I don`t really know why I bought it. I guess it was my love for music and admiration of musicians. I was hoping for a story of a genuine talent. I got an autobiography of a drug addict, a person with no respect for himself or anyone else. To sum it up the content and the writing are rather disgusting.
