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.
