This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography and Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx

by Nikki Sixx

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | September 19, 2013 | Hardcover

This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography and Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx is rated 5 out of 5 by 3.
Few of us have experienced life with the intensity, fury, and reckless abandon of Nikki Sixx, the wild rock star, driven entrepreneur, devoted father, former addict, bestselling author, and gifted photographer. This Is Gonna Hurt is part photo, part journal-but all Nikki Sixx. It is a collection of compelling snapshots and stories that capture the rage, love, optimism, darkness, and determination that shape his work. Told with the raw authenticity that defined his New York Times bestseller The Heroine Diaries, This Is Gonna Hurt chronicles Sixx's experience, from his early years filled with toxic waste to his success with Mtley Cre, his death from an OD and rebirth to his addictions to music, photography, and love. Love story, bad-ass rock tell-all, social commentary, family memoir, This Is Gonna Hurt offers the compelling insights of an artist and a man struggling to survive, connect, and find a happy ending-a search that fuels Sixx's being. "I want to take you on the journey I am on, in real time," Sixx writes. "If you don't deal with your demons, they will deal with you, and it's gonna hurt."

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep and Interesting I bought this book right from my retail store, instead of online. It was better than I expected it to be! Nikki has such a fascinating and yet twisted mind. He does pour out his soul in his words, and his photography is intriguing, fascinating, and amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speechless Picking up this book, was the best thing i've ever done. My life has actually changed from reading a book. Finally a book that makes you think, makes you feel beautiful, and makes you re-evaluate life and death. After I read this last month, I've been able to feel confident, and feel like the author is behind me every step of the way. I can already see an improvement in my life. I'll be forever greatful for reading this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! Soo amazing. Once I started this book, I knew I wasn't going to stop reading it until I was finished. I read it all in one shot, and it took me about 4 hours. Nikki is a really great author. He has a great outlook on life, and he does an amazing job of sharing it with his readers. The photography in this book is phenomenal as well. It adds a great quality to the book that you don't normally get with other memoirs.
