|I got the book in the mail and read it all in one sitting, staying up pretty late to do so. I guess that means it was good, right?|
At first, the book lacked emotion and felt almost ghost-written. But when it hit the Genesis period, it sounded more "like Phil." I learned a few details that, even after Armando Gallo's books, reading forums over the years, etc., I still did not know.
Very depressing as the story enters the 90s. I saw the Dodger Stadium 92 show and remember how Phil seemed changed, distant. And, apparently, this show is precisely when his second marriage began to derail.
The last portion of the book is agonizing to read. It is amazing Phil survived. And also surprising that he was already descending into alcoholism before and during the 2007 tour.
The book was moving and a worthy read. I still feel emotional a day later.
