I love how this book pokes fun at self help books, but at the same time is the best self help book you'll ever need. It's funny, witty, and thought provoking. All the wisdom you ever need can come from Keith Richards. I have this book out on the kitchen table and read a few pages or a few lines every day. It offers me just the right amount of wisdom and advice when I need it. It is well written and full of facts, too. It is a must for any Stones fan, but even those who are remotely familiar with Keith and the Stones would appreciate it, too. Get this book, you'll love it!

Format: Hardcover
This is a very loyal book to a very controversial figure and his personal philosophy: Keithism. The lifestyle of Keith Richards is self-destructive but at the same time powerfully preservative. This superb insight sheds light onto the dark depths of the human being, and how even in the muck and slime of humanity, beautiful things may shine. Just as the great Nazi philosopher Heidegger said that we must be held out into nothingness to comprehend our own meaning, Keith Richards says, "At our best, we master the art of going just over the edge of the abyss, then pulling back.". By the way, Richards once lived in a secret Gestapo hideaway. Mrs. West riffs with a vivid verve on a remarkable man and his unique personal philosophy. After all, the man who outlived his heroin addiction, outrageous lifestyle, and trepanned brain surgery might have a thing or two to say about that muddled thing we called life.

A brilliant concept, very well written, astute and funny "self help" book - an ingenious way of telling Keith's story and philosophy through quotes, humor and smarts. Unique, extraordinarily entertaining, full of surprises - take it from Keith, follow his lead cause if he can survive... You so don't have to be a Rolling Stoner to relish and delight in this wonderful ride. Cheers to you Ms. West! Now excuse me while I get another helping of wisdom from a second visit. Did someone say? "need a gift" ... uh...for everyone you know!

Jessica West illuminates with a thoughtful, picaresque, thorough and thoroughly entertaining light the many aphorisms and applications of the "heroin-addled guitar player from the projects" who ended up as a "twenty-first century philosopher and urban street guru." One of my favorite sections is "Keith and Nietzsche" where the author finds the wisdom of celebrated philosophers mirrored in quotes from Keith -- "Life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced" (Kierkegaard) and "I like the expanding vision of life, of what goes on. I find it a fascinating story -- a great book." (Keith) -- Yes, a great book indeed!

Keith Richards! Yeah ! His wisdom, his musical roots, his own philosofy and way of life, his inteligent sense of humor, his wit, his repartee, his charisma, makes him a unique person in the world of Rock`n`Roll ! When sometimes you`re down, reading a litlle bit of this book, makes you happy, thinking "Yeah ! That`s it ! Don`t worry to much !" He`s got it's own rules of living ! Of course it`s Keith Richards, the icone of Rock ! Famous and wealthy, but those two things never go up to her head ! I think is a guy that you can sit in a Bar and talk to him like a comom person ! Not like Mick, who`s the best front man in the world but very " social and egocentric " and all that ! Keith is a "man`s" people and i wish God gave him a long life ! He`s the heart of the Stones and Mr. Rock`n`Roll himself ! Very easy to read, with several topics in witch they have small frases and texts ! A wonderful job of Jessica Pallington West, author of "Lipstick" but also a strong fan of the Rolling Stones! Congratulations !
