So, finsihed the book a couple of weeks ago. It was a good read, a lot better than Slash or Steve's memoirs. But that being said, I doubt people not interested in GN'R and/or Velvet Revolver would find much of interest in it, although it does aim to say something of value about life and human relations in general. Duff really comes across as a nice, normal guy. Still, this is nothing like The Dirt which anyone would find entertaining. Duff's book is mostly for people interested in Duff and his life.

Again, he does come off as a nice guy. He admits not being brave enough to step up and try to control things when GN'R fell apart, instead succumbing to booze and drugs. He admits not being there for his friends. And by doing this he immediately presents a more empathic personality than Steven and Slash. Not only that, he also tells about putting his life back together and moving on, becoming a father, being a responsible adult, how to cope with sobriety.

He also writes himself, and manages to do it better than Steven's and Slash's ghost writers. It is a good read, it is well written, the sentences flow nicely. Well recommended to anyone interested in GN'R, VR, Duff or how to get your life back on track and turn things around.
