Leaving out all of the personal stuff from family and close friends made this book feel aloof. What is the point of a personal memoir if the really important and learning stuff of life is gone. I think family deserves at least a footnote of space.

A brilliant audio book. I couldn’t wait to listen to Bruce telling his own story! Wasn’t disappointed.

I really enjoyed this book. So often autobiographies are self indulgent, full of rambling anecdotes aimed at self justification, but this is a tight, disciplined book with a coherent and interesting narrative. There is a very nice balance between the music and his other interests and nice bits of travelogue when describing his visits to foreign shores. To be honest the delivery was a bit Clarksonesque but easily forgivable in light of such wonderful story telling. Some parts made me laugh out loud whilst others made me feel sad, but Dickinson never deliberately tweeks the heart strings. All in all a fine piece of work, well worthy of the fascinating life it seeks to portray.

Bruce has a fantastic life story and an engaging presentation style that made this a thoroughly enjoyable read/listen.
I’m a big Iron Maiden fan and there was more than enough about the band, tours and their creative process for a fan, and this was complimented by his other non-maiden life which most fans would be aware of but not to the detail here.
Was a relief the book wasn’t the rockstar bio trope of a set of anecdotes about sexual conquests and escapades with recreational drugs - if that’s your thing then there are plenty of other rock star biographies out there.
In my view, this book is far more interesting and entertaining
If you're a maiden fan read this. and also some cool flying stories! made me appreciate bruce alot more. What a legend
