Because its short little articles compiled in a book for easy access.
N. Phillips
When I first read the book, I was amused at how this whole rock chick thing is faked, I thought it was trying too hard and definitely not edgy enough.
Em
This book would make a charming gift, but its presence in the "Self Help" section puzzled me.

This book would make a charming gift, but its presence in the "Self Help" section puzzled me. None of the entries is more than a page or two long, and the overall theme contradicts that of the edgy subculture it is marketed to: strong, independent women. The book instead wastes several pages trying to instruct the reader how to sleep with rock stars and what kind of bikini waxing style is preferred by rock stars (no joke). It's like a throwback to the 50's housewife, with heavy eyeliner and lots of leather.
Honestly, it was like a modified edition of Cosmopolitan magazine, with a snazzier cover, cooler name, and higher price.

I was very disappointed with this book. The "chapters" are mostly 1 or 2 short pages, and the writing is Seventeen Magazine reading level. The advice would be useful if you are a late-teen/early-twenties in America's heartland, or maybe grew up in a convent. But if you're in one of those groups, you won't have the money to buy the trendy designers mentioned, and you won't be in L.A. to use the advice on how to hang in the hottest clubs and bars like you're on Entourage. The book's only high point was Lisa Loeb's great recipe for grilled cheese sandwiches. Save the money you would have spent on this book, and go out and have some real life experiences.

This book is kind of fun and entertaining taken with a grain of salt, but it's pretty far removed from real experiences on the road. "Rock Star" life is more than bikini waxes and stripteases, and the consequences of an absinthian night is a morning washed in rock star vomit. If you're really hoping to get a real, talented musician to fall for you, you'd better be prepared for long roads, sleepless nights, and emotional breakdowns. You'd think a former NIN member's wife would be aware of that.

Format: Kindle Edition
i am 15 years old and in about the second or third chapter i realized this book is not for teens. i thought it was going to be about having the confidence of a rockstar, etc. but instead, the majority of the book was about drinking alcohol and sleeping with rockstars. there is also a chapter about how to roll a blunt...i mean really? not all of todays modern rockstars party like that anyways. i know what you're thinking: a 15 year old should be overly ecstatic about all of this! but im extremely disappointed, and not only because i am straightedge, but also because girls my age and younger will read this and think it is okay. it isn't. aslo, the book was very unrealistic for the majority of girls out there. like we all live in hollywood where we can see our favorite rockstars at the park? i don't think so. i don't recommend buying it unless you're actually in on the rockstar scene. i want my $15 back.

First of all, this book needs not to be taken too seriously. It's a fun, quick and entertaining read. Lacks a bit in consistency, but entertaining nonetheless. When I first read the book, I was amused at how this whole rock chick thing is faked, I thought it was trying too hard and definitely not edgy enough. For some reason I read it again, out of amusement, and thought some of the advice given in there is pretty good for girls who need a confidence boost.

A proper "rock chick" will NOT need this book for guidance, ever (she doesn't need instructions!). It's great for the girl who'd like to become a bit edgier and confident, however. Some of the tips are insightful, I'm thinking about the "Bitchy Broads" chapter here, how not to let someone intimidate you and how to tell real friends from fake ones. Decent advice here.

Chapters written by fashion designers, however, are a bit lengthy and somewhat boring. The chapters written by Dita Von Teese (giving GREAT instructions on how to do a perfect striptease) and Kat Von D were awesome though! It's painfully mainstream in places (not that it's wrong - it's just that it claims to be oh so rock n' roll). I just don't see how Katy Perry, Avril Lavigne and Gwen Stefani could EVER be considered edgy.

So yeah, it's to be taken lightly. Entertaining and fun but definitely not the Holy Bible of Rock Chicks.

Cherry Bomb was far from entertaining with lots of outdated and obvious concepts, really not worth the money at all.

I guess the book was all it was meant to be. It related stories from different rock stars, their girlfriends and groupies. Not much substance but some parts were interesting.

My partner and I read the book, we exchanged our views and will note my review here. I kept on looking for a guide throughout the pages to become a better flirt, but just could not find it. But the reading was amusing.
