Keith Richards, "Life" (2010)

Loved much of this book.
Witty without being maudlin, honest, and informative. The momentum waned for the last 20% or so, somewhat paralleling the decline in the Rolling Stones' performance, division between Keith and Mick Jagger, etc. The book is fleshed out with a bit of fluff in this section, including cooking advice and a recipe. Nothing wrong with that, I suppose, and it does serve as a reminder that Keith is a human being who has to eat and all that.

You can read excerpts from Life here.

You can listen to a few interviews and Richards' speaking engagements here.
