    Yeah Keith Richards book is awesome, as are The Motley Crew - Dirt and the Anthony Kiedis biography, though Kiedis one gets a bit monotonous after a while

    The Damage Done : 12 years in hell by Warren Fellows

    About a heroin smuggler from Oz that gets caught smuggling from Thailand and is sentenced to life in prison. It's a truly gruesome harrowing story I recommend anyone to read it.

    All books by Raymond Feist if you're into Fantasy. They're very well-written imo

    Both great. Try anything by David Mitchell, not the Peep Show guy. Cloud Atlas is a recent favourite.

    Times Eye---Stephen Baxter and Arthur Clarke

    The Strain---Chuck Hogen and Guillermo Del Torrro

    Only two book series I've read in a long time that I would call great.

    i thought Scar Tissue was really good too mate .. got through it very quick .. i thought some bits did seem a little far fetched, like dancing naked with flea on the table at a record companys meeting , during the meeting .. something like that .. but who knows ... good book tho for sure.
