From Chrissie Hynde, one of rock's most iconic, alluring, kick-ass, and (let's face it) sexy women, a brilliant, no-holds-barred memoir of a rock life lived to the hilt.
Chrissie Hynde, the songwriter and front woman of The Pretenders in its various incarnations, has for 35 years been one of the most admired and adored and imitated figures in rock. This long-awaited memoir tells her life story in full and utterly fascinating detail, from her all-American Ohio '50s childhood to her classic baby-boomer seduction by the rock of the '60s to her sojourn in the crucible of punk that was '70s London to her instant emergence with her band, The Pretenders, in 1980 into stardom as a frontwoman and songwriter. She brings a fantastic eye for detail, a withering and sardonic sense of humor, and a fearless and sometimes naked emotional honesty to her memoir, and every line, every word of it is unmistakably hers. It is sure to be recognized as a classic of rock literature - and, man, is it fun to listen to.
With an introduction read by Chrissie Hynde.

Love Chrissie but this came up short
Her rawness of becoming a female rock n roll star!
Her honesty about her parents.
Determined by content by story.
I wish she went on past her bandmates deaths. I wanted to know more about the development and songs beyond the first two albums. She is so much more.
I would like to more in depth of a women in the harsh world of rock n' roll. I felt this was written with kindness and not just harsh reality with respect.
Straight-talkin' rock goddess
