Summary

Amazing

I had no idea what to expect. at first I thought it would be a light listen but it turns into a funny but Frank assessment of his life. for all the highs and lows you may think you know about, this book explains what a tormented human Richard Pryor was. l

Powerful and painful

This was one of the best books on Audible, yet one of the most painful. Richard Pryor was an exceptional talent and his insights in this book are amazing. I would have liked to hear more about some of his professional relationships and it seemed that he only skims the surface when talking Eddie Murphy, Redd Foxx, and Gene Wilder. One of the best and most brutally honest autobiographies I’ve read.

Not funny, just sad

A dead honest and truly sad story that moved me. I didn't know all of this about Richard Pryor. This one I will for sure listen to again! Well written and read. Five stars from me.

The tragic life of Richard Pryor

What a story. Miss the man and his humor. This book humanizes him and brings him close to earth, but don't worry, his feet never touch the ground.

Wow...

Richard Pryor lived his life... should have been dead long time ago.. Reminded me of the stories some of my uncle's told. Great read when you think your own life is fucked up.

Read the book years ago

I really think the narration could have been better. I read the book year ago and the narrator just did not capture the Richard Pryor style. It was not his fault. Maybe a comedian should have do it.
