After reading a few mediocre biographies I was given this one for christmas. It's a brilliant book that keeps you hooked the entire way through. I grew up listening to Guns and Roses so this fascinated me as you get to hear how they came about writing the songs and get an insite into the dynamic of the group. They really lived up to the rock and roll tag and amazingly have all survived to tell the tale. I'd recommend this to everyone, even those that dont like Guns or even rock music in general.
