Publisher's Summary

The fascinating never-before-told-in-full story of personal reinvention grounded in musical salvation and fatherhood.
Travis Barker's soul-baring memoir chronicles the highlights and lowlights of the renowned drummer's art and his life, including the harrowing plane crash that nearly killed him and his traumatic road to recovery. After breaking out as the acclaimed drummer of the multiplatinum punk band Blink-182, everything changed for Travis Barker. But the dark side of rock stardom took its toll: His marriage, chronicled for an MTV reality show, fell apart. Constant touring concealed a serious drug addiction. A reckoning did not truly come until he was forced to face mortality: His life nearly ended in a horrifying plane crash, and then his close friend, collaborator, and fellow crash survivor, DJ AM, died of an overdose.
In this blunt, driving memoir, Barker ruminates on rock stardom, fatherhood, death, loss, and redemption, sharing stories shaped by decades' worth of hard-earned insights. His pulsating memoir is as energetic as his acclaimed beats. It brings to a close the first chapters of a well-lived life, inspiring listeners to follow the rhythms of their own hearts and find meaning in their lives.

Don't Judge a Book by Its Cover

Prior to this book, I was only familiar with Travis' exterior facade and publicized antics. But now feel inspired by his colorful road to maturity, dedication to family and his arts.

Narrator Cary Hite has a beautiful voice. Only room for improvement was confusion at times knowing who was "speaking". Cary doesn't use variety between guest quotes and when he is returning to Travis' voice.

Overall- great book!
