All of Jerry Lee's quotes are set apart by a little bullet point icon in the margin, so if you just want Jerry's words they're easy to find. "Baloney!" he exclaims more than once. There is considerable disagreement over the particulars of Jerry Lee's rowdy life, and JLL may not be the most objective and reliable witness. It's a rock 'n' roll Rashomon, basically. Keep in mind that this book was published in Britain, so the spelling, formatting, and punctuation may seem a bit dodgy to Americans. Or maybe White just has an odd style.

Not knowing much about the Killer, I enjoyed the behind-the-scenes stories from people who knew him. The only thing I didn't like that much was the editorializing from the author. Occasionally, he let his own beliefs and ideas get in the way of telling the story.

Although I liked it, it seemed a little confusing at times. There was so much about other family members, it was hard to keep up with all the details.

This book reads as if it was started with a great burst of energy,lost steam somewhere along the line,was abandoned,picked back up,dusted off,put down again,and then finished off for a payday...I had great expectations for this work as Charles White was involved,the Killer was clean and sober and was eager to tell his story (set the record right) after his ex wife (and probably only true love) Myra came out with Great Balls of Fire which was made into the movie of the same name.Unfortunately,well... we get a rambling,somewhat incoherent hodge podge of rehashed stories that have been told and retold for the most part,and Jerry Lee really adds nothing new to them. There are some worthwhile nuggets;Jerry's brief profiles of some of his contemporaries,a few words on his substance abuse problems,and some great color commentary of touring life during the early days,however,what becomes apparent is that most of the time EVERYONE AROUND the Killer seems eager to tell jerry's life for him and he either lets them because it serves his purpose ,or he is resigned to this type of treatment,or maybe he is so crispy that he just doesn't have it in him.Whatever the reason,this book is definitely NOT THE story of Mr. Jerry Lee Lewis as it should be told.
This book is still a riveting read simply because one never knows where the rambling might lead!The frustrating point is knowing that this effort could have been so much more IF the Killer could have reached down inside and demanded from himself and from those around him that he be heard.

I enjoyed this book very much. I am a fan of The Killer and enjoyed reading about events in his career and personal life as told in his own words. The listing of all of his recorded songs, released or not, was very imformative.
