    1. Actual rating: 3.5 Oh lord, I do not even know where to begin. First and foremost, it should be known I love my man Flavor Flav! And when I found out that this book was written exactly the way he talks, I was so excited to read it. And quite frankly, that's why I liked it! I love the fact it was written in "Flav language." That fact that it wasn't written well made it really seem like you were just sitting down with Flav, talking to him about his life. I really liked that aspect of the book. But [...]

    2. This book walks the reader through the iconic, Flavor Flav's life. It is an autobiography by Mr. Flavor Flav so his insights are interesting to say the leastOS: This book is a great, quick and easy, funny book. This humor is demonstrated as Mr. Flav describes anything from childhood stories to day to day activities. There was very little editing done to this book; this allows the reader to truly live life through the eyes of Flavor Flav. This little to no editing adds to the humor aspect because [...]

    3. This book is the story of Flav's life, as told by Flav. This story is remarkable in that it seems to be a reality-book. Is this a new genre? It seems that no heavy-handed editing took place, perhaps very little editing at all. This is reality reading. The book suffers because Flav refuses to go into any subject in depth. And though I liked him before I read the first page, I grew to dislike him over the course of the book. His writing showed a level of self-absorption and an attitude towards his [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this book and in fact finished it in two sittings. I'm a fan from way back. It was easy to read and he writes the way he speaks so while I was reading I was able to picture him telling his story. I recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Flavor, Public Enemy or simply interested in reading about a truly fascinating person.

    5. Started strong. Finished a little weak. I really enjoyed it - but probably because I met Flavor Flav when I bought the book.

    6. You can tell he wrote this book lol I loved hearing about his life and his time doing flavor of love. Great book.
