"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

From Publishers Weekly
In the beginning there was the Motley House, crawling with cockroaches and rats, beer cans piled on the porch so high they threatened to spill into the house every time you opened the door. "That place gave birth to Motley Crue," the band recalls in The Dirt: The Autobiography of Motley Crue. After the record contract, they write, "like a pack of mad dogs we abandoned the bitch, leaving with enough reckless, aggravated testosterone to spawn a million bastard embryo metal bands." Crue members Tommy Lee, Mick Mars, Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx also team up with New York Times music writer Neil Strauss to tell the story of their band's rise to phenomenal success: their tours, friendships, alcohol and drug problems, music, influence and, above all, girls. No heavy metal fan will want to be without this crude, honest chronicle.

From the Back Cover
The most influential, enduring, and iconic metal band of the 1980's reveals everything a tell-all of epic proportions.
This unbelievable autobiography explores the rebellious lives of four of the most influential icons in American rock history.
Mötley Crüe was the voice of a barely pubescent Generation X, the anointed high priests of backward-masking pentagram rock, pioneers of Hollywood glam, and the creators of MTV's first "power ballad." Their sex lives claimed celebrities from Heather Locklear to Pamela Anderson to Donna D'Errico. Their scuffles involved everyone from Axl Rose to 2LiveCrew. Their hobbies have included collecting automatic weapons, cultivating long arrest records, pushing the envelope of conceivable drug abuse, and dreaming up backstage antics that would make Ozzy Osbourne blanch with modesty.
Provocatively written and brilliantly designed, this book includes over 100 photos, many never before published, for the most exciting and insightful look ever into the Crüe.

not a fan of Motley Crue, i thought and still think as musicians they are a joke, their music is awful, and they represent the very worse that the hair metal era had to deliver, but this book is very readable and interesting.
it is basically these guys and others, chapter by chapter, telling their story, and it;s neat to read a chapter by one of the guys and the next chapter, by a diff guy has a different take on the same matter.
the only guy who comes off as decent is (i think his name is) Mick Mars, as he is older and has a crippling disease, which i had no idea about, but even still with Tommy, Vince and Nikki coming off as absolute junkie, drunk, clowns, it's a good story and is told very well.
The GOOD,the BAD and the UGLY of a great rock n roll band is in the pages !
I loved it I'm just sorry it took me so long to get around to reading it!
Buy it, order it, READ it ! It's worth the time!♥️
