The book was fantastic. Good story, funny and, a little bit sad. I like the way Tony tells about the fun stuff the band did, not just music but pranks and stuff, and that he is including other bands and artists.Also it takes a lot of guts to tell about the drama and his disease, so I give him my respects. The way the author told the story was also quite good.
As a big fan of Sabbath and Iommi, great guitarist and song writer, i looked forward to this audio book immensely. Sadly it became a bit same old same old after a while. . record af album, tour, drugs, punch ups the aroung and around. . got bored
Iron Man is a straightforward account of Tony's life chronologically without a specific structure or point.
I'm a super-fan, so I liked it a lot; but there wouldn't be enough here for someone who wasn't.
There are occasional stories that are either very funny or fascinating.
Bev Bevans's performance is spot on. Casual & engaging. It's like sitting down for an evening with Tony on his couch.

I am a HUGE Black Sabbath fan, and this book did deliver some excellent behind the scenes stuff for me, however I found it a tad guarded, compared to some other rock bios. I also think Tony's sense of humour was lacking, perhaps it was just the way the story was written (or the ghost writer's work), so it was a bit dry. Although I've read other Black Sabbath books, this gave me a different take on the rise of the band, also the band members diverse personalities and contributions etc. So I enjoyed that a great deal. The narration was terrible though, I didn't appreciate hearing the narrator swallow and shuffle in his seat constantly. Perhaps it needs to be performed again with a better narrator to make it more enjoyable to listen to?
