I usually love reading celebrity autobiographies. This book does touch on Flav's reality shows such as The Surreal Life and Flavor of Love and the Comedy Central celebrity roast but that is only during the last few chapters.

This book also contains accounts of meeting other celebrities such as Michael Jackson and Charles Barkley but not in much detail. Every story is so brief and vague and punctuated with 'nawm sayin' and 'wowwwwwwwww' and 'yo Gee'.

I do not know much about Public Enemy and this book also mentions about Flav getting together with Chuck D and some other guy called Griff who beat Flav up a few times using martial arts. Is the band broken up by now?

The majority of this book, to me, is pretty lame - mostly incidents of drug use and going in and out of jail, fistfights, and impregnating ladies. Seriously, this guy can't keep it in his pants (7 neglected kids). He hits women. There's no redeeming message. He wasted millions of dollars on drugs and nonsense and then blames the record company for not helping him to put out a solo album and he blames police and lawyers and parole officers for putting him in jail whenever he is caught with drugs.

I find that he is just lucky to have a career revival, and he takes no responsibility for any of his behavior. I used to think he was funny. Now I won't be watching him on TV.
