This is an entertaining account of Alice Cooper's rock career and golf addiction, and makes for very easy listening. Narrated by the man himself, I'd reckon thirty percent of the book is about golf and seventy about his career, although if I was being harsh I'd say it's hard to tell which he boasts most about! You might pick up some golf tips, you'll definately pick up some good stories and you'll listen to the end, which is about all you want from an audiobook.

As audiobooks get more and more popular as we're always on the move, Alice Cooper's 'The Golf Monster' is well worth 4 hours of your listening time. Read by the man himself, 'The Golf Monster' is a 12 chapter autobiography themed around how Alice's golf 'addiction' helped turn his life around (with each chapter intro explaining how to improve your golf game). Even if you're not interested in golf, Alice's life story is a fascinating listen as he overcomes adversity, becomes a superstar, battles through alcoholism and retains a bright outlook on life the whole way through. Alice is immensely likeable, interesting and never feels sorry for himself as he talks through the highs and lows of a fantastic career with an optimism and sense of humour. He's a real eccentric and he's quite inspiring as well. This book was written in 2007 but as any Alice fan will know he's still as sharp as ever these days, touring 'Paranormal' in 2017 and 2018, one of his best albums for decades. Thanks Audible for contiuing to stock more and more different books like these and not just the bestsellers you see at WHSmiths in train stations.
I was a little disappointed because I did not realize the audiobook was abridged. However the book was enjoyable, even though I am not a golfer. I am guessing being a hardcore Alice Cooper fan as well as an avid golfer is a rare demographic. But the golf stories did keep my interest. Also, I believe many of Alice's stories are not entirely accurate, for example, the chicken incident or the breakup of the original band. If you want more accurate Alice Cooper stories, read or listen to the original Alice Cooper bassist Dennis Dunaway's book.

If your an Alice fan, you won't want to go past this awesome behind the scenes look into his life, and what makes it even better is Alice himself reads this :D His sense of humor is apparent and I would recommend this to everyone (yes, even non-Alice fans) as you get a true understanding of what makes this man tick! Well written, awesomely read, a master piece for sure!
