The writing style can be irritating....and a lot of the 'autobiography' is a lie (*)
Interesting in places, informative, an easy read
Some bits are dull and repetitive (*)
Good explanations, mix of lyrics, good pictures
none (*)
Sympathetic, even-handed biography of Dusty's career and personal life
The occasional disputed fact and irrelevant information; no discography (*)

Great range of topics dealt with honestly and professionally
Probably premature, to the point where a second autobiography is likely at some point (*)
Well written, Easily read
repeats itselfs, sometimes feels like long monolouge (*)
I rarely give five stars on books - for this I can't give anything less
It's very long - but very good (*)
Honest and brave guy
Bias opinion (*)
Atmospheric portrait of the group, the music and the culture
A few aspects could have been made more of; occasionally disjointed (*)
