This book was by far not my favorite work on one of everyone's favorite band. It gave you some interesting points of view on the band, its members and some of the struggles they endured. But the book would probably be more appropriately titled, 2 chapters on GNR the band and the rest on why Axl Rose is a whack job. If you were ever brave or curious enough to explore the inner workings of the mind of one of rocks most notorious front man, then maybe this is for you. Too much Axl, not enough everyone else. If your more a veteran on GNR lit. go ahead. if this is your first GNR book, I would strongly suggest SLASH or Watch You Bleed, first.

This book was okay. It didn't really have much new info if you're a fan of GNR and really follow their story. It was an okay read though. The editor should be fired though; lots of mistakes and missing words, at least it seemed to me. I found myself having to re-read different sentences and paragraphs and fill in the missing word. Once I did that it was "oh yeah. That's what he meant."

Other than needing a good proofreader, it was pretty cool. AXL is still the man!

Still worth owning if you are a Guns N' Roses fan.

Here,British journalist Paul Stenning traces the entire career and story of Guns N' Roses--one of the world's most succesful and most influential rock bands. The childhoods of Axl Rose,Slash,Izzy Stradlin,Duff McKagan,and Steven Adler and the musical influences Rose,Slash,Stradlin,McKagan,and Adler have had are both documented here,and there is some really good insight and info into the life of Axl Rose and all of what led to Rose doing some of the decadent and outrageous things that he has done in his life (there is also some "Axl Rose Psychology" in this novel,which reads in both a fascinating and shocking way). Here,you will also get to learn all about the formation of Guns N' Roses,the stuff that went on in GN'R's career and the lives of GN'R band members inside and outside of Guns N' Roses,behind the scenes stories to Guns N' Roses songs,more into what made GN'R so controversial,and there are several other interesting things in this book. While this novel is mostly focused around Axl Rose (as well as Slash),some of the stories in this book that have to do with either Steven Adler,Izzy Stradlin,and/or Duff McKagan are completely fascinating (most of this book has recycled information in it,and there is not too much new info to be found here,but there is a lot of really good info in this novel),and Paul Stenning also documents the whole story behind "Chinese Democracy" in this novel. I always wanted to learn more about the new line-up of Guns N' Roses,the making of "Chinese Democracy",and more on the songs that have been written for the CD(as well as the CDS' planned sequels)and if you want to know those three things(as well as everything else I mentioned in this paragraph)like I did before purchasing this book,this novel has what you are looking for.

However,even though this book is very good in several areas,it is very low in some areas also. The large amount of typos in here(I didn't count them all up,but I was able to tell from reading the whole book that EVERY chapter in this book has more than five typos in it)is annoying and just plain ridiculous(there is even one part of this book where Paul Stenning uses a * but then does not say anything about what it is there for),this book does not tell enough about the post Guns N' Roses careers that Slash,Duff McKagan,Izzy Stradlin,and Steven Adler all had and the making of "Appetite For Destruction",and there is a little bit of a setback to this book. That setback is the fact that Paul Stenning is an OK,but mediocre author,so while this book does have several interesting facts in it,the several interesting facts to be found here are told a little bit poorly. Granted,the list of critiscms for this book that are mentioned above does seem long,but the good things about/in this book are all really good and are good enough for me to give this book a four star rating instead of a three star rating(believe me,I did like this book,but I can see where both the good and reviews of it are coming from).

There are actually two editions of this book available--an original version(which you can find right here off of Amazon;it has a red cover),and a revised version)(the version that I am reviewing right here).I would definitely say to go for the revised version--unfortunately,it fixes very little(if any)of the typos in this version of it,but it does add a new and good interesting chapter on Velvet Revolver,the new rock band that Duff McKagan,Slash,and Matt Sorum are in with former Stone Temple Pilots lead vocalist Scott Weiland and guitarist Dave Kushner,who has played in several different bands.

Despite it's faults,this is a very good book. If you know very little(or nothing)about Guns N' Roses,this book is worth both reading and owning(if you know a lot of information about GN'R and have read other GN'R books,whether or not you want to own this book is really up to you),but if you already know a lot about Guns N' Roses and knew a lot about GN'R before purchasing this book (which was my situation,although I did find a lot of facts in here about Guns N' Roses that I had not known about before I purchased this book),I still do suggest to not hesitate about buying,reading,and owning this novel,even though it does have some faults.

I am a really big GNR fan and I have a large collection of biographies. When I heard about this one, naturally I had to buy a copy. I barely finished a fourth of this book due to the extremely large amount of typos and the fact that there is abosolutely nothing new in this material. I haven't read any other GNR book in at least two years, so I'm not a source of endless GNR trivia, but nearly every "fact" or "anecdote" in this book was something I remembered hearing from another source.

This book is extremely shoddily done; shame on the writer and the publisher! It was put out just to capitalize on the hype around Chinese Democracy (don't even get me started on the mud Axl is dragging the memory of GNR through), and the author/editor/publisher clearly had no concern for producing a high quality product.

Go read Mick Wall's book if you want unauthorized (but probably really true, just not that Axl wanted to hear it) material by an outstanding journalist.

Interesting, because I am a big GN'R fan. But it could have been a lot better. Not enough details about the tales of debauchery and the lifestyles of each original members. Where is Steven Adler? What about Izzy Stardlin? What about their idylls with porn stars, super models, and groupies? I prefers a type of book like the dirt of Motley Crue, which countains all the real stuff.

But for those who don't know, the book reveals an interesting side of Axl Rose psychology. In three words: a psychotic woof.

I still wait for Chinese Democracy, Axl!
just one girl
I am a huge fan of Guns n Roses and Velvet Revolver and thought this would make a great read. But right at the beginning I could tell that the author has no writing skills whatsoever. He really needed to fire his editor because there were quite a few mispellings and grammatical errors, but that wasn't the biggest flaw with the book. Most of the information is taken from magazine interviews and the rest seems to be complete hearsay. It would have been nice for the author to actually talk to the bandmembers in length before devoting a whole book to them. I feel that it was unfair, mostly to Slash, Izzy, Steve and Duff.

He made Axl out to be some god, which he is far from being. It was the other guys who had the drug problem, not Axl. YEAH RIGHT!

Either way, the book is poorly written so try to buy it used or borrow someone else's if you really want to read it.
