3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Susan Swaigen on June 22 2009
Format: Hardcover
Hard core survival! Not a profound book - not intended to be, but great fun being in the company of the coolest eccentric ever. An alter-ego to all the "Be the best you can be" tripe. Survival is the name of the game! Don't let the turkeys get you down, etc. A bit over the edge and repetitive at times, but a terrific summer/ bathroom read. Reminds us not to take ourselves (or others)too seriously and that it's a great life if you don't weaken. Great gift for the unrecognized 'rock stars' in your life!

Format: Paperback
Sure, unauthorized but it didn't matter to me. This book is chock-full of Keith Richards' quotes and anecdotes. An excellent "bathroom" book. Something you can read at random points and enjoy. Made me want to rush out and buy "Life" by Richards himself.

Bibliography at the end is very useful. The author clearly loves KR and put her heart into it. Buy it for a friend then steal it back!

What a nice way to get in touch with Keith Soul. I will use it for teaching philosophy to my students!

Format: Hardcover
The book is an okay read, but a little short on actual Richards quotes and a little disjointed. The two key pieces of advice from Keith that I like are that every one is the same under the skin (which explains his skull ring) and that the best piece of advice that we can take from him "is to keep breathing".

LOVE this book! April 30 2009
By Bobbi Sox - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I love how this book pokes fun at self help books, but at the same time is the best self help book you'll ever need. It's funny, witty, and thought provoking. All the wisdom you ever need can come from Keith Richards. I have this book out on the kitchen table and read a few pages or a few lines every day. It offers me just the right amount of wisdom and advice when I need it. It is well written and full of facts, too. It is a must for any Stones fan, but even those who are remotely familiar with Keith and the Stones would appreciate it, too. Get this book, you'll love it!

Keithism! May 6 2009
By Andreas Tibbles - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a very loyal book to a very controversial figure and his personal philosophy: Keithism. The lifestyle of Keith Richards is self-destructive but at the same time powerfully preservative. This superb insight sheds light onto the dark depths of the human being, and how even in the muck and slime of humanity, beautiful things may shine. Just as the great Nazi philosopher Heidegger said that we must be held out into nothingness to comprehend our own meaning, Keith Richards says, "At our best, we master the art of going just over the edge of the abyss, then pulling back.". By the way, Richards once lived in a secret Gestapo hideaway. Mrs. West riffs with a vivid verve on a remarkable man and his unique personal philosophy. After all, the man who outlived his heroin addiction, outrageous lifestyle, and trepanned brain surgery might have a thing or two to say about that muddled thing we called life.

It will change your life April 30 2009

Well, it won't really change your life, but it will give you some laughs and some nice insights. What a great idea, and it is well executed to boot.

Format: Hardcover
A brilliant concept, very well written, astute and funny "self help" book - an ingenious way of telling Keith's story and philosophy through quotes, humor and smarts. Unique, extraordinarily entertaining, full of surprises - take it from Keith, follow his lead cause if he can survive... You so don't have to be a Rolling Stoner to relish and delight in this wonderful ride. Cheers to you Ms. West! Now excuse me while I get another helping of wisdom from a second visit. Did someone say? "need a gift" ... uh...for everyone you know!
