I just got this book today. Reading just the first page made me want to keep reading. There are things about Nikki Sixx that I just didn't know. I am not going to mention it, you just got to pick up your own copy. This book is awesome. It even has colored photos and lyrics by Niki himself.

I'm not a fan of Motley Crue and I hadn't read the author's last book. I was curious to read about Kat Von D. Well, this book had no information, just fluffy praise that she's his twin. {By now that relationship is long over.}

Other than that, this book contains freakshow-like black and white photos which exploit deformed and handicapped people. I don't find them to be artistic, and he tends to use a lot of photo shop to add layers that obscure the subject of the photo. He's trying to get that grimy, street feel a lot of the time.

Finally, this book is an attempt to promote the author's new band, which I had never heard of. Many of the pages contain lyrics.

My favourite Douchebag, from my youth. Pictures are ok and some stories about his life. He finally realizes behaviour wasn't always becoming hey, it's funny to look back at robbing a liquor store but hey kids are kids right? Ask the guy working at the liquor store etc. For fans only.
