A very good rock autobio. If you're a Duranie from days gone by, you'll enjoy it. It's written pretty well, and Andy's personality comes through the writing.

You learn a lot about the band's dynamics (albeit from Andy's perspective), a bit about their songwriting practices, and some stuff about Andy's personal life.

Andy is pretty honest--he doesn't skim over the truth, but he's also not overly graphic in relaying the "gory" details.

Best read in tandem with John Taylor's "In the Pleasure Groove." In fact, you might go ahead and read that one first. It feels like Andy fills in the gaps for what John didn't say (even though John's was written years later).

Poorly written. Very much a self-grandiose memoir.

I've been a long time fan of Duran Duran and it was nice and suprising to get such a no holds barred look from the inside. For anyone of that generation who thought the band was all squeaky clean, this will open your eyes to the real people behind the posters.
