his own father abandoned him at a very young age!!! plus, his sisters didnt understand him @first bout' his emotional pains and mental anguishes... is why he barked at poeple the way he did! not done reading the book yet, will let you know my own honest take of this hard case read very soon. read the book on mr. nikki sixx. complicated man. drugs is no way to compile any on going relationship with any one or other people that love you. drugs SUCK!!! sorry that he lost his mother and he'll somehow will make up for it with his new family that loves him much greatly and richly. he has a lot to live for these days and busy projects aswell... it's good he forgave his father. it's good he forgave his mom. lost a sister too; but got to keep cece comer and close to the vest these days. gripped my heart and his it's bad, ugly, humor tale of life on the road during the 1980's girls, girls, girls tour. ---especially the entry where they cut doc mcghee's bed in half! funny among other stories... good read on deadly honesty story of one of rock's living(literally alive son)legends. success to mr. sixx.

Avoid this book. there are better rock and roll autobiographies out there. this is really poorly done.

This was an amazing book. It helped me more than words can actually explain.

Talk about living on the edge! This true story is not for the faint of heart.
The Heroin Diaries is an unforgettable look inside the turbulent life of rock star, Nikki Sixx. Told with intelligence, grit and brutal honesty, this graphic diary will have you hooked from the beginning.

Very artistically bound. Informative and an entertaining read.
However, it is very graphic and most certianly for adults.

I think this is the best autobiography I have ever read. Usually I have a hard time believing everything but he had lots of people writing notes throughout the book so it was believable. Great idea.
