First of all - I love Henry Rollins. Always have. I loved Black Flag, The Henry Rollins Band, and all of Henry's spoken word material both live and on CD. But as far as his books go?--waste of time. Maybe he likes his own work and thinks we all will?--I'm not sure. But he definitely lost me with this book because it's just garbage. I even attempted another book just in case I thought it was just one lemon. But no. Rollins just is a bad writer for the literary consumers. He gets his point across vividly in spoken word, which I enjoy - and recommend you stick to, if you love this guy too.
