    1. From the first chapter I hated this man. He is completely self-centered, nothing is ever his fault, every woman that has ever existed apparently is in love with him and he has no remorse whatsoever. This book is a glorification of drugs. It is obvious he is going to relapse as he quite evidently loves being off his face more than virtually everything else on the planet. I think the only thing he loves more than being high is himself. It was quite evident to me that this book was written by two p [...]


    2. The great thing about Steven's book was that he wrote about some things from the band’s history that Duff nor Slash didn’t write about. Like that part about Ritz ‘88 which was actually one of their best performances ever. Did you know they performed 30 minutes late because Axl refused to come on because he couldn’t find a friggin’ bandanna? Or about how they shot the video for Patience? What about that time they shot a cameo for The Dead Pool, and on the day they were going to film the [...]


    3. As a huge Guns and Roses fan, I was really looking forward to this book. Having read other rock memoirs, such as Nikki Sixx's Herion Diaries, I wasn't expecting much, but I did expect some good stories and some understanding of exactly what lead to the breakup of Guns and Roses. I really got neither. I stuck through to the end but I kept looking for an excuse to stop. There was just enough history sprinkled throughout that I kept looking for more, but now that I'm done, most of what I learned co [...]


    4. Steven Adler certainly has experienced a rough life of the cliche world of sex, drugs and rock & roll. The question that I have to ask is why write a book about it? Not a single event in his life was without remarking about the glory of finding a fix, or retelling in crude detail his sexual exploits with women along the way. Not only was his stories quite juvenile, but there was a conflict between the two Adler's, one a drug addict, the other sober but reliving the days of getting high as so [...]


    5. I had no opinion of Steven Adler before reading this book. Now that I've read it, I think he's a self-centered, misogynistic asshole who feels sorry for himself.


    6. I've got to admit when I saw this book offered on my library's e-book list I jumped at the chance to download it. Not because I was a big Guns N Roses fan growing up, I barely listened to the band and if I did it was only to hear their most famous songs at the time. No, the reason I wanted to read it was because I watched Steven Adler's struggle with addiction on Celebrity Rehab. While I wanted this to be one of those books I just devour (no pun intended) I was suprised at how apathetic I was to [...]


    7. It’s a good while since I’ve read a rock autobiography and, upon reflection, this book gave me what I pretty much expected from it. It’s not War and Peace and it’s by no way a collection of nursery rhymes. Put simply, this book is a fairly hard-core account of sex, drugs and rock and roll. From this standpoint, it may have a fairly limited appeal being niched to a particular target audience.Although opinion is divided on them, I’ve always been a fan of Guns and Roses and find that most [...]


    8. I am torn on this one. Just like Steven Adler, I too have a horrible addiction. I am addicted to trashy rock star biographies. There, it is out in the open. I almost always give them horrible reviews, but what do I expect? I hardly ever read them for their Pulitzer prose. I always feel horrible and dirty after I read it, (like Purell on my eyeballs dirty) But, I will always pick one up when I see one. It is my own fault. The lesson? Steven Adler is a horrible person. I have to give him an extra [...]


    9. I was never a fan of GNR but was attracted to the seemingly genuine person Steven Adler could be when he wasn't high on the Celebrity Rehab show. He was always there for his mates and seemed to care deeply about their sobriety. He has relapsed several timesdiction is a life long illnessd he has lost his health, sanity, career (which he is hard at work resurrectinga talented drummer!) and has a beautiful wife that must have went through hell and back with him. I thought his book was one of those [...]



    10. I’m a huge fan of Guns N’ Roses, so I’ve read my fair share of biographies about them. After reading the band’s ex-guitarist, Slash’s autobiography, I was more than a bit dubious about picking up ex-drummer Steven Adler’s book. After all, he is the one that has the severest drug problems, and probably has the worst memory of all the band members. However, although I was far from blown away by this autobiography, I did end up enjoying it more than I thought I was going to.Alder starts [...]


    11. I've read enough rock bios to know that when you've truly embraced a sober lifestyle, you stop blaming other people for your problems and you stop making excuses for your past. I'd like to read the sequel if Adler can ever find that place of peace, because there is no excuse for this piece of garbage. If there's anyone who is a worse writer than Adler, it's his ghost writer, who couldn't find a way to make this dribble tolerable.


    12. Complete waste of time as was Steven Adler's life apparently.This book taught me nothing and generated ZERO sympathy for the way Steven left the band.A book of whining and WHY ME? Seriously? Had it made and pissed it away being stupidIf less than one star were available


    13. Never realized Steven had been thru so much with GNR. He has a great heart and holds no grudges, more of the world could take lessons from Steven. Good read.


    14. Oh, Steven. Steven, Steven, Steven. It's so nice to see this guy doing well. I was a Guns 'N' Roses fan in a big way after hearing Appetite For Destruction. Such a breath of fresh air. It was a rock 'n' roll record in a great big sea of not rock 'n' roll. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that is thee rock 'n' roll record of my generation. I mean, most of my favorite LP's came out in the 70's, for the most part. Aerosmith, AC/DC, Zeppelin and so on. When Appetite came out, nobody was playing that [...]


    15. I honestly don't know what to make of My Appetite For Destruction. It started off pretty good, but the more I read the book, the more suspect I became of who actually wrote this book. Early in the book there really was no frame of reference to compare to as it was just one voice. But the further you get into the book, the more obvious it becomes in that there are two different "Steven Adler's" telling the story. I'm not being mean here when I say that it's clear which part is the real Adler (the [...]


    16. Okay, so I only read this book because I couldn't get my hands on a copy of Slash's book, and then I started to read Nikki Sixx's new book but I couldn't take more than a chapter or so at a time and I still wanted a rock memoir. And Steven Adler is actually the only original member of Guns N' Roses that I wasn't particularly interested in reading a memoir by (interesting number paradox, anyone?) but what the hell.And it's really not bad. It's definitely not well-written, which is a shame, since [...]


    17. Former Guns and Roses drummer Steven Adlers' memoir begins like a carbon copy of all other rock star biographies. Born in the mid-west - Check. Troubled child hood - check. Moving out to LA based on happenstance - check. Famous folks drifting in and out of their lives - check. Wild groupies - Check and finally success. It's when success hits that Adlers tale take a decidedly more sinister turn.Unlike Adlers' 80s metal contemporary Nikki Sixx in Adler never has a break. His near death experiences [...]


    18. This is the only book I have read that has been given one star. I received this as a gift and after having read Slash and Watch You Bleed I thought it would be interesting to get another perspective on Guns N' Roses. However, I was quite disappointed with this book. Although being co-written, the writing seemed almost juvenile and dumbed down. Perhaps it was true to Steven Adler's voice but it did not seem very well written. Having gotten clean before taking on this project I would have thought [...]


    19. I wanted to like this book, I loved GNR as a kid and loved The Dirt by Motley Crue, but I HATED the style in which this was written. I agree with lots of reviews that say he looks at women as things but really feel that's because that is how he was treated at a very young age. He glosses over it but was sexually abused a LOT as a child by men and older women. My son is 7 and I just kept thinking if mothers and women in their 20's and 30's were having sex with my don in 4 years time, I would KILL [...]


    20. When I thought I couldn't read something more lame than the Sixx one, I read Adler's one, well make sense since this guy from Motley Crue appears.I'll explain my points for use this word.-Lame for think that the best years of his life was when he was on his 17-21-Lame for talk more about sex and drugs than music.-Lame for involve other people unnecessary for make it "more interesting"-Lame for all the cliches.-Lame for say Axl dosnt respect women when he wrote a whole book talking with unnecessa [...]


    21. This is better than Scott Weiland's bio, but it's definitely the weakest of any of the G and R bios. Adler tries to redeem himself, when he doesn't really have any redeeming or particularly interesting qualities. Quick read, but read Slash's bio and Duff's bio first and don't bother with this one unless you're really bored or a super fan.






    22. I read about half of this, and it was terrible. Not only was it poorly written, the stories were pointless and extremely shallow.


    23. I was never into NKOTB but I loved some GNR. Great look into how they came to be and all the debauchery that came with it.


    24. As it appears on The Accidental Reader: My Appetite for Destruction by Steven Adler book reviewI have a really bad feeling that the synopsis of the book will be longer than my review and I feel bad for that.I am sure by now that you all know that I am a huge GNR fan and that I read all the three biographies (Slash , It's So Easy and Other Lies). I liked the other ones so much especially Duff's but I am a little disappointed with this one if not completely.Ok so like every autobiography book Stev [...]


    25. As a person who grew up with Guns N' Roses (to the extent where, according to my mother, I was able to quote most of 'You Could Be Mine' by the age of four), I naturally wanted to read every band member's account of the band once branded the 'most dangerous band in the world'. I could be biased having read both Duff McKagan's 'It's So Easy and Other Lies' and Slash's own self-titled autobiography (both brilliant) but, putting it bluntly, Adler's account was consistently grim, and completely self [...]
