Tyler tells what it's like to be a living legend and the frontman of one of the world's most revered and infamous bands—the debauchery, the money, the notoriety, the fights, the motels and hotels, the elevators, limos, buses and jets, the rehab.

I picked this book up just before a long plane flight and due to weather issues I ended up having enough free time to read it almost from cover to cover in one session. I can't quite make myself read the last 10 or 20 pages, and that says a lot, considering how much I enjoy Aerosmith's music.
My biggest complaint is that Tyler has a tendency to assume too much knowledge on the part of the reader -- consequently he jumps in and out of topics abruptly and leaves many basic "what's this all about? There are also some fact errors that will jump out at fans, such as mis-attribution of lyrics from the song "Combination. The family's resort in Sunapee sounds like a great place for any kid to spend summer vacations.
Tyler also describes aspects of the NYC and Boston rock scenes in some detail. I'll give Tyler credit for revealing a few facts about his inner self that casual fans would never guess, and for acknowledging his own stubbornness and desire to control the band. But he also seems relentlessly egotistical and takes cheap shots at his band mates -- whose contributions to Aerosmith are obvious to anyone who's heard the songs and read the writing credits for them.
Worst thing of all, for me as a fan, is that the book doesn't do much to explain how Aerosmith became such a great band -- there is some discussion of songwriting, touring and recording especially the first two albums. Bbut overall it seems like Tyler's perspective on the band's rise to stardom amounts to, "I was very talented and driven, when I met Joe Perry I knew he was my musical soul mate, I helped Joey Kramer become a funkier drummer, we toured hard and I wrote clever lyrics.
Also, drugs and sex were enjoyed in abundance. Part of the reason it seems necessary to write this review is to try to balance out the other bad reviews that have been given and to make sure that others don't miss out on a great book because of some questionable reviews. Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. That being said, it should be obvious that I don't agree with people who say this book is anything but absolutely top-notch.
I, myself, am a fan of only a few Aerosmith songs, and I've never seen American Idol, so I'm basing my review entirely upon what I've read so far.

In this book, here's what you're going to get for your money: A straight-forward, honest, in your face, over-the-top, true-to-life, in-living-color recap of a rock star's life that took over 60 years to create, almost 40 of those in one of the biggest, wildest, most phenominal rock bands ever to string together a series of notes and call it music.
Steven Tyler tells it exactly as it is, makes no apologies although he does admit that some of his actions were mistakes, but that he learned from them , and is true to himself and his own personality. Other reviewers said that they were shocked by the excessive use of profanity. If you've ever listened to an Aerosmith song, read the lyrics, or god forbid, listened to him speak at all, this is how he talks, and it should be expected.
When reading about one of the world's most iconic ROCK musicians, one should expect shocking, rocking, and at least a little bit of the profane.
