Great book I wish it was not just a year in Naravos life. I wish it had gone back bit further. if he hasn't already he should write a bio (not just a year). other than that I was a great book.I felt once I was getting into the book it was almost over, and I had to begin to look for a new book already!

I was very excited to read this book. I thought it was an autobiography of Dave's life. Instead it was a year in the life of Dave's life. I believe the yyar was 1999. The book makes no senses in chapters. Its just a mixture of drug induced conversations, random encounters, etc. Would not recommend reading the book. The only chapters I found interesting is when they talk about Dave & Carmen and that is 4 years later. I would not waste my time reading this. If you want to read a good book about life as a rock star, check out Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chilli Peppers)

Ok - I¿ve been a HUGE Jane's Addiction fan as long as I can remember. When a friend of mine told me he got an advance of 'Don't Try This At Home', I had already stole it from his house. This book starts out with a line that will keep your eyes glued to the page just to get to the next word!! I swear, after the Jane's Relapse tour, Dave really spread [no pun intended] himself to the edge of existence. To be a rock star in the Hills of Hollywood may seem like a bit of a fantasy but in the actual reality of it all - read this book! Pressures, pleasures and quick endeavors ¿ life can get the best of you if you let it. The book ties itself to the classic photo booth [like the kind you¿d find at Coney Island] or as Dave calls it, ¿a triumph in cynicism, mistrust and abandonment fear.¿ The photo booth was bought to document one of Dave's hypotheses #1: The only people who stay in you life are the ones you pay¿ but the cleaning lady, the pizza delivery man and the drug dealer are forever. The review headlines will lie - this book is riddled with sex (hookers & whores), drugs (legal & illegal), and rock stars (actors & actresses included) ¿ shown in the way that people who typically see these dreams of becoming a rock star or movie god - are shown the actual pressures involved. I¿m telling you ¿ this book is a roller coaster ride of a dysfunctional reality mixed with chemicals, cocktails and adrenaline. If you¿re a fan ¿ buy this book!!
