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!

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!

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".
