Book Review (Neil Strauss)

Just finished reading the book by journalist Neil Strauss called Everyone Loves You When Your Dead. For those who don't know who Neil Strauss is, he is a very well known journalist and author who has worked for such publications as New York Times, Rolling Stone magazine, has done writing for Esquire magazine.

He as also wrote or helped write many a book such as "The Dirt" the Motley Crue bio, "The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell" the Marilyn Manson bio as well as "How To Make Love Like A Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale" the porn star Jenna Jameson's bio.

The book is a compilation of over 200 interviews he has done over the years. All the interviews are excerpts from interviews he has done for publications, and a lot of excerpts have never been published before. He interviews people like Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, Marilyn Manson, Lady Gaga, Snoop Dog, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis among many others. Neil finds himself in some weird positions while interviewing his subjects. Being hit on by buddy from The Strokes, going to church with Tom Cruise, drinking with Springsteen, shopping for diapers with Snoop Dog, those are just a few of the adventures Neil Strauss finds himself in.

I found the book to be an easy and fun read.
