This book was recommended to me by a friend. I found it very easy to understand and it helped me to consider some of my thoughts and behaviours. I don't think I've got everything from it yet so I'll definitely be reading it again.

As lead singer and songwriter for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Anthony Kiedis has lived life on the razor's edge. Much has been written about him, but until now, we've only had his songs as clues to his experience from the inside. In Scar Tissue, Kiedis proves himself to be as compelling a memoirist as he is a lyricist, giving us a searingly honest account of the life from which his music has evolved.

Struggled to finish it. I did enjoy parts but unfortunately not all of it. The narrator is good.

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets 16-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

It is a good story. Unfortunately, as previous reviews state, the poor performance spoils it. I didn't think it would matter that much but it has a negative impact. Taking away from the storyline.

"I was 22 years old, a hard-on with a pulse: wretched vice-ridden, too much to burn and not enough minutes in a hour to do so. 1995 was a full 365-day year of drinking, fucking, lying, raging and exploration for me - not a dull one in the bunch. It was a time of self-shit: self-importance, self-absorption, self-indulgence and selfishness. I was the only person in the known galaxy and I wanted what the fuck I wanted sooner rather than later." The action begins in Iowa, where Corey Taylor committs each of the Seven Deadly Sins.

I really enjoyed this. It loses it's way a little in places but the overall ideology is great. I especially like the final conclusion, how it's been articulated and the simple yet poignant message Corey Taylor leaves us with.
Taylor provides us with some very personal anecdotes that he didn't have to. However, the fact that he has gives us some insight into the opinions that he has. Basically all I'm saying is read it! You won't regret it.

Ruby Wax - comedian, writer and mental health campaigner - shows us how our minds can jeopardize our sanity. With her own periods of depression and now a Masters from Oxford in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy to draw from, she explains how our busy, chattering, self-critical thoughts drive us to anxiety and stress. If we are to break the cycle, we need to understand how our brains work, rewire our thinking and find calm in a frenetic world.

This book is a must read. I really enjoyed the details that Ruby Wax was able to provide from her studies and her personal experiences. She maintains her witty sense of humour throughout. I will definitely be listening to this again because there's so much useful information in it, it won't hurt to hear it twice. It's also encouraging to hear someone else share similar thoughts to what you have. A pleasant reminder that you're not crazy and you're not the only one to struggle with taming the mind.

This was my 1st audiobook and I enjoyed the majority of it. Unfortunately I thought the ending was a let down. The narration was great, very easy to listen to. I just don't think it lived up to the potential it showed.
