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.
