I think that this book is amazing and well worth the price. And for you NOOK haters out there, the list price of the hardcover version of this book was 27.99. with tax that equates to roughly $31.00, and you are complaining about spending $15.00 on it? What, were you expecting B&N to just give you the book for free along with a complimentary Venti Latte from their cafe? Please look into all the facts before you write a review, Thank You. As I was saying, this is already a terrific book and I highly recommend it to any Aerosmith or Steven Tyler fan. I also recommend Joey Kramer's autobiography as well. Thank You.

For such a music legend, I would pay double. All in your perspective, I guess. Complaints about the cost should be directed to B&N's customer service dept., not as a review of this wonderful e-book.

Steven Tyler has a style all his own and is what made this book such a great read. I especially liked the parts about when he was growing up.

Thank you to those that gave an actual review of the book! I will definitely download on my Nook! Thanks for the 'heads up' about Chapter 4. For those that are hung up on the price... so be it! Sounds like you're going to miss a good read!

To be honest, I accidentally purchased this eBook on my Nook (thank goodness it was only $3 at that time!)...I knew Steven Tyler had released an autobiography, but I didn't really have any interest in reading it. Since I purchased it, I figured I might as well read it. I got about 30 pages into it, and I could not read any further. As a few of the other reviews mention, the writing is choppy and hard to follow, and there is no real rhythm to the book (or what I managed to read of it). Unless you are a die-hard fan, I would not recommend this.

Highly dissapointing. Disjointed, fragmented and full of meaningless Tyler gibberish. No chronology or flow. Lot's of lame Tyler-speak that is hard to get passed. Appears the editor rushed to publish to time with his American Idol appearance. More of a marketing gimmick that a well thought out autobiography. Pass

Loved it...loved it....loved it....saw a whole other side to the man who IS AEROSMITH! Deeply intelligent, deeply spiritual, deeply loving.

There is nothing in this book even slightly worthy of your time or money. What you'll get from this read are the interminable rantings of a narcissistic addict with a case of arrested development. Tyler uses 367 Nook pages, (and the insight of a 16 year old), to pridefully crow about the amount of drugs he's done and the number of women he's had sex with--some underage, by the way--in a bloviating tribute to himself that could have been summed up in perhaps 20 pages. Now, I knew not to expect literary genius. But in my younger days I was a fan of Aerosmith's music so I made this purchase thinking maybe I'd learn something about the art of writing music. What I got was the self-important musings of a now 63 year old adolescent with an overblown opinion of his own value to Aerosmith in particular and music as an art form in general. Seriously, don't waste your time.

Maybe it's just me, but this book was just OK. Unless you really, deeply love Steven Tyler, this book is too much like a twitter blog of some narcissistic celebrity. A lot of bragging and pity talk. But other than that, the sex, drugs, and Rock N Rock are great. Have fun with this book, as it can be a little slow at some points.

Love Steven's eccentric style. Amazing life story, glad he is still around to tell it. Love ya Steven!

I grew up with Aerosmith and had a mad crush on Steven. Always found the style of writing and music to be a step up on many others. I never realized just how much the drugs factored in...that was as bit of a shock, but I am really glad he survived and has been able to write about it all. I found the really personal parts of his story to be pretty funny....glad to know my fantasies were pretty spot on! Now to be able to see him on A.I. and have a little more insight makes watching even more fun. Rock on sweetie....one of a kind. And thank you for all of the wet memories!!

I loved reading this book and was pleasantly surprised! Steven Tyler is so humble and honest, I almost forgot he's my rock & roll hero. His words reminded me that he's human, has problems & issues he needs help with, and is still trying to figure it out just like the rest of us. This was a great book and I can't wait to see him in concert again!

Steven Tyler has a big, flashy personality and his book is no different. He tells it like it is, holding nothing back. We learn about his childhood, his personal life, the making of Aerosmith, his relationship with its members (particularly Joe Perry), his addictions and his songwriting process. Occasionally Tyler wanders off topic and offers personal insights on life. I noticed this bothered many of the other reviewers who wanted a linear, professional autobiography. Unlike those reviewers, I thoroughly enjoyed his meandering. For me, his writing style and (sometimes) lack of structure felt more personal. We're given a glimpse into the real Steven Tyler, the man behind the lead singer persona. He has packed a lot of living into his 60-plus years and has a lot to say. I found the book entertaining, sad, silly and poignant. Steven Tyler is far more intelligent than most people give him credit for. He's also over-the-top crazy at times. But isn't that what we love about him?

There are so many things I can say about this book. Steven Tyler most defenitly holds back no thoughts, he speaks his mind!The book is VERY well written, and is perfect for the Steven Tyler/Aerosmith fan. I highly recommend this book.

Would you say that Steven Tyler likes to talk? Well, he does and he leaves nothing out. He can get on a topic and it seems like he can go on forever, BUT he keeps you interested. I think it's a very good biography.

This book is absolutely hilarious. My family was so sick of hearing me giggle as I read it I really think they would have "chunked" my Kindle (sorry B&N) if they could have found the opportunity. Everyone on my Christmas list is getting a copy!

I have been a fan since '76! I loved reading this glimpse into the life of Steven Tyler. I watched Idol for the 1st time just to watch him. He is a Rock GOD!

I've always loved Aerosmith! My favorite band off ALL Time, and that would make Mr Steven Tyler my fovorite Rock Singer of all time. So of course my husband had to buy me his memoir right away. I do have to say this was a very interesting read. You expect drugs and alcohol abuse to be a big part of his life, but I really enjoyed finding out how he and the band "made it". I enjoyed the insight he gave into his lyrical creativity, and loved his explanation on LSD ( lead singer disorder).:-)
