For the price that people are charging for a used version of the book, you might want to see if you can borrow it before you plunk down the cash.

The book was written when Cooper was in his late 20's. There's a lot of declarations he makes in the book that probably were absolutely true when he was that age, but obviously are not now. Like telling us that in his lifestyle, he finds three things useless. Marrage, funerals, and underwear. Well, he's married with kids now. He's been to at least one funeral, and...well, we'll just let the underwear remain one of life's mysteries. It's rather interesting to see how we change in our values and opinions as we get older, and how no one is immune to change. We have a tendency to think that celebrities somehow get frozen in time and will be the same person at 40 as they were at 20.

The book is not for the faint of heart, but then again, Alice Cooper fans are known for not being faint hearted anyway. The general tone of the book makes me feel like I happened to get stuck in a broken elevator with the man, and just to pass the time, we're telling each other our life stories. It's got that casual semi-friendly feeling to it. A few times though, had I been on the elevator, hearing the life story, I would have probably cracked up and said, "Wow, TMI!" You will not look at jelly donuts again without either cringing or laughing.

If you're an Alice Cooper fan, you will want to read this book. You'll probably want to own it, although for the price, it might be too steep.

I read this book on the internet. After reading it I was hungover for a week while consuming no alchohol that week. This book has lots of interesting information on the Alice Cooper band. Particulary from the mid to late 60's Before they hit it big. this book shows that bands today are no match for the A.C. Band. Also show's music at its most interesting time when Bands were aloud to have fun being a rock stars. The A.C. Band achieved this in spades while keeping the integrity of their raw, organic sound unlike popular music today. This book is like a welcome passport to that time and revisit a great band gone but not forgotten.

I remember actually having a copy of this book that I bought a year after it came out in a Waldon's book store. Oh, it makes for good reading and all. But take it from me, DON'T even think about spending over, say $50 for this book. Simply because you might end up regretting it. Talk about regret: I know for a fact I don't have my copy anymore. 'Me, Alice...' features plenty of inside info, specially on the band's early days of survival and all. Obviously, this book is in much need of being reprinted. Hint: maybe have a limited 'live' vintage CD of one of the band's early gigs, that has never been available elsewhere come with the book. Dealers THEN could likely ask a higher price for it.

Format: Hardcover
This book is priceless. He writes this book in a way that you feel like you're sitting on the couch making casual conversation. It's easily understandable, providing the reader with unnecessary comments and whims about his childhood, teen years, and funny things that have occurred in his life as well as providing great-to-know info on the band's early years and Alice's development into what he has become today. I've never and I don't think I ever will read an autobiography with such candid blatancy. So many times I had to put down the book, wide-eyed, and laugh my head off, slightly embarrassed, wondering how in the world something so humorously explicit got published. I've read this book twice from my campus library and not only am I a huge Alice fan but also an intense book collector, so make fun at me all you want but I'm paying $300 to get my own copy, and I will get it signed one day.

Format: Hardcover
First off, this was a highly entertaining book. It's great for hardcore Alice fans. It shed more light on his earlier years in high-school and the "Pretties" era which I was eager to learn more about. Me, Alice was raunchy, hilarious, and contained many TMI moments. But secondly, the price for this book is absolutely ridiculous. If you really just want to read this book, find it online and save yourself the money and regret from paying hundreds of dollars. Or try to find it at a library near you. I was lucky enough to find the biography at a library that was close by, check it out, and not return it. (Sorry to any Alice fans in the St. Louis area) And wow, what a bargain that was! For a library edition of Me, Alice I only paid ten dollars. Overall it's your decision, but if I were you, I would read it online.

I read this book in high school in the mid eighties, having been a fan since I was about nine years old.After seeing the prices wanted, I wonder if I would pay that amount.You have to be a hard core Alice fan , and if you are it may be worth it! It gave me a glimpse into the inner workings of my favorite showman at that time. Great stories that will make you laugh and cringe! P.S., the prices are steep because it's an out of print book that probably has only a handful of readable copies left in the world, and it probably won't get a re-print.Remember the Coop!
