User reviews about the book
Honest moving story
A great autobiography. Anthony comes across as honest as they come. Tells the story of his unstructured childhood and the rise of the RHCP in matter of a fact fashion not focused on glorifying himself. Cool to see the relationships with his band mates. Great insight into his thinking during the battle with addiction. Interesting insight in his character as he strives and mostly succeeds in staying faithful to various girlfriends despite the temptations of the road. Like Anthony before respect him a lot more now.

Scar Tissue really lets you get to know Anthony Kiedis' backstory and personality. The book presents us with a very personal and tragic story that ultimately plays out well. 5/7, perfect score! Would recommend.
Check it out
Great read. Especially if you're an addict or alcoholic or if your life has been affected by one.
What a life
A great story of what it was really like to find your inner self, while at the same time creating an amazing band. A very personal and real story. Stay sober A.K. We are with you

Awesome book-I'm obsessed with seeing the rhcp's in concert now....one of the few bands I haven't had the pleasure to see in person. Anthony's crazy and very gifted!
Reading this book is mesmerizing, like watching a train wreck in super slow-mo, simultaneously wanting to make it stop while not being able to tear your eyes from the inevitable, fascinating wreckage.
Whitnessing AK’s seemlingly endless battle with addiction unfold; descent into hell, recovery, pause, repeat, is painful. But, as the horror unfolds and the revolving door of muses float in and out of his life, he also gives a priveleged view into his creative process as well as that of an amazing group of artist, and the evolution of their music. All the joy, beauty, artistry, friendship and glee is there, along with the pain, loss, exaustion and powerlessness of addiction. This book offers insight to any fan of their music, and a cautionary tale of hope and redemption for those of us battling similar demons. Thank you Swan, for sharing your journey with us.
Such an unexpected beautiful journey. Thanks for such an unabashed look at yourself and your life.
Awesome, appreciate the candor from Anthony, drug/alcohol addiction is real. I'm dealing with it this book helped!!
I really identified to the struggle that was described in this book. The whole time reading I was imagining how beautiful all the women were and low and behold, the pictures to prove it, follow the story. Surrender to win my friends, surrender to win!!!!!
Finished the book tonight. Restarted the book tonight!
Best book I've ever read! The ups and downs of Anthony Kiedis and RHCP! You get inside his head and you feel his joy and pain and compassion! I could not put the book down! I would recommend this book to anyone! Not only music or RHCP fans like myself. I can understand how it can affect everyone! Read it!
