Remarkably entertaining. A uniquely honest and candid confession of a life in the fast lane. Keith is exceedingly intelligent, disclosing his heroin addection, and rise to fame. Frequently misunderstood, yet emotionally direct. Streetwise, with insightful observation, reminiscing on his family, childhood, and fame, with openess, humor, and heartfelt sincerity. Wicked, sarcasttic, intimate, a keen eye and a detailed life story, of probably the best guitarist. Powerful!

This is one of the best autobiographies I've read. I especially like the detail Richards goes into about his guitar style. But I found his recounting of events and insights about people very interesting.

What a fantastic book! It is literally one of those books that I could not put down (and I don't say that often)! Great insight into the workings of the early Stones!

They story of Keith Richards' life is as fascinating as the story of the Rolling Stones, and he delves deep into his memories of both in "Life." Some of what he tells is expected, much unexpected, but it is all Keith.

One of the best modern autobiographies I've read. I'm not a huge Rolling Stones fan but really enjoyed his insights about music and people.

"Review" by , "[A] high-def, high-velocity portrait of the era when rock 'n' roll came of age, a raw report from deep inside the counterculture maelstrom of how that music swept like a tsunami over Britain and the United States....Mr. Richards has found a way to channel to the reader his own avidity, his own deep soul hunger for music and to make us feel the connections that bind one generation of musicians to another. Along the way he even manages to communicate something of that magic, electromagnetic experience of playing on stage with his mates, be it in a little club or a huge stadium."
"Review" by , "[A] slurry romp through the life of a man who knew every pleasure, denied himself nothing, and never paid the price."
"Review" by , "The ultimate Keith Richards album."
"Review" by , "Rollicking and raw."
"Review" by , "What kind of celebrity autobiography is his Life? A remarkable one."
"Review" by , "[Richards] not only has the best tunes, he also knows how to tell the best tales."
"Review" by , "Compelling, endearing, insightful, action-packed, graceful, generous-spirited, unflinching, and funny."
"Review" by , "A vivid self-portrait and, of the Stones and their musical era, a grand group portrait...spellbinding storytelling."
