    I enjoyed this book. When I read autobiographies and stuff like that (especially when it's related to music) I can finish a book in one sitting. That happened with this book and with Anthony Kiedis' from RHCP's Scar Tissue. Both good reads for those who haven't read them.

    I just received the reprint. Looks pretty slick. It was cheap too.

    I'll probably start reading tomorrow.

    They already have a reprint?

    Also I agree with the previous poster about reading it quick just like i did with Scar Tissue.

    I borrowed the Tao of Wu from a library that I live nearby several months ago. It was really insightful. RZA is the man.

    The story follows Kiedis from his birth in 1962 to the (then) present day of early 2004. It follows Kiedis into the depth of his experiences with drug addiction. The title name was taken from the single "Scar Tissue" released five years earlier on the Red Hot Chili Peppers album Californication.

    Just really dope, crazy, interesting stories from his childhood, time with the band etc.

    His dad was an actor and drug dealer in hollywood..the below video is a small taste of what the books about.
