Summary

This century's most ardent advocate of the First Amendment, controversial and outspoken, hated and adored, the infamous Larry Flynt's life needs no exaggeration to make it one of the most interesting stories of our time.

The real events of Flynt's life are captured here for the very first time, from his roots in Appalachia to his troubles in Beverly Hills.

A true American hero

I'm not a big fan of pornography but am passionate about the first Amendment. I first came to admire Flynt when I read about how pro-feminist his publishing company was. He treated women fairly and paid them well . This too short autobiography reveals what a brilliant articulate man he was who hated hypocrisy and the fake morals of the religious right and was willing to be jailed and shot to continue his crusade against these "assholes" as he called them . We need more people like him today. A great read, at times funny, shocking and triumphant.

UnSeen Hero of America & Full Emotional Experience

Larry Flynt, believe it or not, is one of my Hero’s way up there top ranks. The movie is a must as well. This American story is ONE OF OUR MOST IMPORTANT! It’s humble, it’s human, it’s about strong will for what is RIGHT & how we CAN FACILITATE OUR OWN FREEDOM when SO MANY of US are violated by corruption in government; society’s unfair judgement & it changes the way must live; & how standing up for your RIGHT can impact so many. It’s a story of humility; will for surviving all things, American pride, independence of our own minds; capitalization & economics; lesson on judgement of ppl; a TRUE LOVE story & magical; a story of loss, grief, great suffering; SUCCESS in life’s full gamut of experiences & of how this country REALLY WORKS IN GOVERNMENT & teaches us to do what is right & not let anyone tread on that right. We Can Endure All Things. Never to pass judgement. Sometimes Success isn’t Everything. We must be Courageous. The Power of a man to love & respect all persons & how that itself changes a human profoundly. LARRY FLYNT, I LOVE YOU, TRULY! I’m bored & tired of all the shallowness in ppl. I love U & send me out or come on over! Thx for EMPOWERING ME in my battles w all of the above! U make heart succeed.
ONE OF THE BEST HUMANS IN THE WORLD - A GREAT AMERICAN! You Will Understand how & why!

Captivating

This is the story of an incredibly controversial man- who lived a life that you may not want to recreate for yourself but you cannot help but be intrigued by.
Larry Flynt is many things, but in his complexity, irreverence, obscenity, and even his off-beat soft side, is a force that begs you to evaluate your freedoms, social values, and sex.
