Read full description of the books:I read this one in a day because I simply couldnt put it down. I guess there was some kind of morbid fascination in it for me as I have always wondered what it would be like if I just "let it all go" for a while and give in to excess...whether I could claw back from the edge or simply become lost or die. Of course Dave Navarro has oodles of money and unlimited access to the LA freakshow so his story is much more interesting. This book is an interesting look into his psyche and what happens when a human being has no boundaries. Dave's ego and incredible self-absorbtion as well as capacity for shifting responsibility for his own problems is just plain ugly....no romance there. Looks and talent have made the man famous but underneath this is nothing pretty (well for that year of his life anyway). It was painful to read about people exploiting things that were extremely important to him such as his dead mother and connection to unicorns just to get closer to him. I guess there are no shortage of vampires and vultures out there. Despite all of this he seems to be quite intelligent and has an ability to read people (as well as some kind of magnetism) and its a shame that he used his "powers" for selfishness and destruction...though I guess that he has moved on from this point in his life to hopefully more positive things. He did put this out there in the hope that it may help others and he did come to some important realisations "If its everybody elses fault, then why am I the guy thats dying?" and the 10 reasons NOT to tie off. All in all it was a very interesting and harrowing read.
