I'm the Man is the fast-paced, humorous, and revealing memoir from the man who cofounded Anthrax, the band that proved to the masses that brutality and fun didn't have to be mutually exclusive. Through various lineup shifts, label snafus, rock 'n' roll mayhem, and unforeseen circumstances galore, Scott Ian has approached life and music with a smile, viewing the band with deadly seriousness while recognizing the ridiculousness of the entertainment industry. Always performing with abundant energy that revealed his passion for his craft, Ian has never let the gravity of being a rock star go to his shaven, goateed head.
I'm the Man is a blistering hard rock memoir, one that is astonishing in its candor and deftly told by the man who's kept the institution of Anthrax alive for more than 30 years.
"Jabby, gabby, and metal-obsessed...exhilarating." (New York Times)

Comparing this to other Metal bios this is one of the best. Mustaine's book, for example, was all war stories I've heard over the last 30 years. This book gets into the real meat of his history and would put it up there with some of the best history books I've read.
The Fifty-Year Mission, which is a long Star Trek biography. The detail, depth, and perspective is second to none in those two books. Scott Ian covering his own history is equally as deep.
Scott's performance overall. I'd put his narration up there with Michael Caine's autobiography.
