As a motley crue fan, it was great to listen to the man himself. Loved it 😀
Hated it. I found the book to be about this guys ego. Started ok with the first chapter then went into free fall. To be frank this guy came over as "Mr Know it All" and it was his ego trip. I am not into his music and I would think that if you aren't this book isn't for you.
I dont care who you are there is something in this book to inspire everyone to live to their full potential and truly enjoy life. Highly recommend this book! Being read by the author makes it that much better sine he was there and the emotional impact of that makes it real for the listener. Get this book!

What would have made This Is Gonna Hurt better?
I did not make it very far into this book - it is without doubt an authentic and sometimes entertaining representation of Nikki's life experience, but I stopped listening because Nikki repeatedly comes off as a self-centered and rather insensitive voyeur and exploitationist of people who occupy the underbelly, which just isn't all that, to me at least. When he gets away with his pictures of the German prostitute, catching her at awkward moments that she clearly resents and he kind of revels in her resentment, I was done. Sure great photographers can ruffle their subjects, and when you snatch a cigar from Winston Churchill, or hire a drunk woman to ambush NY society women on the street, that's shit running uphill, which is interesting, reversing the expected social order. So too does treating social outcasts with insight and sensitivity reverse the order. Instead I was left with the impression that Nikki was also shitting on the outcasts, but somehow it was OK because he was an outlaw rockstar who also lived in the gutter. I read several of the reviews that cast a rather different impression, so maybe my perspective would have changed had I "read" on.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The performance was fine.
