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.

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.

Fantastic

I didn’t know what to expect with this book, I had heard bits about Tony Pike so thought I would give it a go. I made the right choice, I think it’s the fastest I have ever listened to a book. Very open and honest. I couldn’t stop listening to it, what a life he had.

One man and his cock!

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

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 .

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.

he truely lived a full life

tony lived a incredible life. was it one i would want to live. i don't think so, but good for him for making something of himself. he sounded like women were more important than his children and he discarded them when it wasn't at his convenience, but that's just what you get from the story. most people live for their children, he lived for that next piece of ass which really is pretty sad. maybe he had a better relationship than what the book led on, but he sounded like a horrible deadbeat dad. He made his own luck no doubt.

Disappointing, lacking depth of description and poorly written

If you are looking for a book that shares the beauty of Ibiza and the pleasures of vicariously living through Tony Pike’s experiences you will walk away frustrated. This book is a poorly written, shallow accounting of a man’s life. The book barely scratches the surface of Tony’s explorations and accomplishments, even the recounting of his stated enormous sexual appetite was superficial. His name dropping of the entertainment crowd he attracted with a large flair of misogynistic sexual encounters was repetitive and drearily drab. I questioned how much of his recounting of the ‘beautiful women and men’ he ‘bedded’ was actually true. Those accounts were quite nondescript. ‘She was gorgeous, a model, I f’d her’. The most descript of a sexual encounter was with George Michael. With all this said. This book of Tony Pike’s life could have been so much more.
