I teach substance abuse content in my nursing courses and this book helped clarify many issues from the perspective of the individual struggling with addiction and recovery as well as the effects on those around them. I think that Fieldy is also timely in that it will attract young people that are familiar with his musical career. The writing is very candid and the honesty is truly touching. Enjoyed the read.

Got the Life Not So Thrilling

I am a huge Korn fan, and wanted to learn more about Fieldy's past experiences with the band (especially now that Brian "Head" Welch has left). While the first third of the book was interesting, containing shocking accounts of substance abuse and rock star excess, it quickly transitioned to repetition. Although the conclusion of the book is inspiring, the writing is poor and repetitious, and I can't say I'd recommend it to fans of rock biography or of Korn.

    Journey into the mind of a true rock star

    Its very captivating to me, to read how one grew up like myself in a bad neighborhood and became one of the most inspirational rock stars of all time. Reading in between those lines is a journey into someones life that you have grown up with for 15 years. Only its personal this time. Very good book.
