Summary

It’s not every day you come across an autobiography which starts out with learning how to overcome sexual abuse as a child, how to become an international playboy who built the most famous boutique hotel in the world, where people like Freddie Mercury, George Michael, Julio Iglesias to name a few, called a home away from home, add in the odd shipwreck or two and more than a few thousand sexual partners and misdemeanors along the way, and when your finished, you'll agree that this book is not just another great listen but its perhaps the greatest story every told.

One man and his cock!

Great story, but too much emphasis on sexual conquests. Narrator doesn't understand sentence structure!

Not great

A bit of a bore. He must list every woman he has ever slept with. Too much of that and not enough story.

Loved it. An example of how life should be lived.

When I say how life should be lived I mean lived the way you want. Doesn't have to be a hedonistic sex fueled rampage through life just however you want to live it. As quoted by Mr Pike himself "too many people live a mundane life stuck in a rut". Certainly made me think about my own life which makes it a great read especially when coming into my forties and thinking my best years are behind me. Tony definitely proves that you can keep going with any lifestyle you like well into twice my age and proves that anything is possible if you work for it.

5 star 👌

great listen, such a fascinating life and lifestyle, brought me on an emotional ride. makes me wanna go back to ibiza and experience pikes no matter the cost. even tho it may not bee the same, I'd like to imagine what it was like back in the 70's 80's 90's when it was thriving. so glad I have downloaded audible as its perfect for them long drives 👍

A crazy memoir of success , Hedonistic living , crazy partying with the rich and famous , what a guy Mr Tony Pike was .

Great book , proper in-depth stories of fun / frolics with quite a number mega stars names ,if your book is that of an easy read into famous Folks behind the scenes lifestyles , then this is definitely up your street . Didn’t agree with previous review of bad spelling in this book , I had the audible version and didn’t hear one misspelt word .

Very entertaining

A hugely entertaining book! Whether every story in it is 100% accurate is not important to me, it’s very funny in places too, some great lines. There’s an interesting interview with the author on the pikes podcast.

Could not stop listening

Tony Pikes story was very interesting from start to finish. He experienced a lot as a young boy and even more as a man. Safe to say he too can say he’s lived quite the life many people do not get to experience by seeing the world like he has.
