    1. So, I m a Cooper fan Let s get that straight from the start So he probably could have completely screwed up with this book and I would still have enjoyed it Luckily he didn t, although it s by no means a masterpiece.It s kept short and sweet this is a good thing as it s never getting pretentious, and as Cooper, at least to my mind, is all about entertaining However, the backside of that is that you re never likely to get any meat with the story and after a while it feels like a long list of some [...]


    2. Yep, that s right Alice Cooper He s a Christian by the way go figure That s a pretty neat part of his story, and his whole story actually turned out to be a really good book It was passed along to me from my dad, and it sat on my shelf for a few months I was looking for an easy read one day, and I picked this up because I figured it had to be easy Alice Cooper wrote it It s a combination of an autobiography and his 12 step program on BECOMING an addict a golf addict He replaced his addiction to [...]


    3. Although golf is perhaps not my cup of tea per se I did get a lot out of this book There really is to it than Alice s golfing experiences and tips.After finishing this book, I feel like I got to know a small part of the real Alice Cooper The man has certainly led an interesting life, to say the least and really, still lives one This is definitely someone that one should not judge the book by its cover, when making observations of Alice in costume.For those put off by Alice s persona, you really [...]


    4. Excellent convo with the weird and wonderful Mr Cooper Shock rocker, alcoholic, golfaholic and born again Christian he definitely goes against the grain I ve always liked Alice and this book does nothing to change my mind on him A true gentleman and great ambassador for the world of rock n roll.


    5. I am a big Alice Cooper fan, and I loved learning about him This preacher s son went to hell and back with his alcoholism, and he s been dry now for over 30 years.Alice Cooper, formerly known as Vincent Damon Furnier, walks us through the ups and downs of his life He was born in Detroit but suffered from asthma, so the family moved to California and then Phoenix He nearly died at the age of 11, given only a 10% chance of survival after his appendix burst His body was toxic with peritonitis, and [...]


    6. The Father of Shock Rock shares tidbits from his 40 plus years of stage experience and how golf helped save him from the alcohol that was destroying his life and music Half memoir, half golf tips, Monster is not terribly revealing or instructional for that matter The good news is that none of that matters because the stories are so entertaining Alice finally gets to the bottom of the whole live chicken incident and is rather frank about his conversion to Christianity and his decision to continue [...]


    7. Alice Cooper is one of my all time favorite singer entertainers This book was great, but I can t get enough, so of course I d love something even detailed As you would expect from the title, in addition to his life story, you get tidbits of golf advice and stories from this very good golfer.Just finished the audio book version read by Alice himself It is an abridged version, but a pretty entertaining listen nonetheless It s cool to hear these books in the author s own voice as it adds some nuan [...]


    8. That was a very insightful book to his life, struggles, music, and everything around it It made it even awesome that the audiobook was read by himself, made a massive difference Even though I have no idea about golf in any aspect, I loved the book for the sake of getting to know what he went through when writing his music Some albums make much sense now and I actually yelled out yes when he said The Last Temptation was possibly the best album he ever wrote, and his own favourite Yes Mine too E [...]


    9. This book was really enjoyable to read, and this is coming from someone that is not a die hard golfer It weaves in and out between his life experiences and how the game of golf helped him regain control of his fast paced, alcohol abusing lifestyle For anyone that is looking to learn about the famous Alice Cooper or about the positive aspects of the game of golf, I would highly recommend reading this book


    10. This was a fun book to read, almost as if you re playing a round with Coop and he s giving you pointers while he tells you his stories As others mentioned, it s kept PG, but that s to be expected Not a tell all book by any means Alice, at times, comes off justifiably arrogant That s OK though, he s earned that both on the stage and the golf course.


    11. Fast paced and intriguing story weaving sports and music together from the undisputed king of shock rock Although it was hard for me to relate to the golf aspect as it is not my area of expertise, Cooper tells a great story showing his journey from alcohol addiction to channeling his energy into a positive outlet in the form of a sport when not onstage performing


    12. I have always been an alice cooper fan so it was fun for me to read about some of his escapades I also liked the fact that he went back and forth from some of his rock and roll life experiences to chapters on nothing other than golf.



    13. What do I love Alice CooperWhat is something I don t love golf.It averaged out While I like the concept of the book, splitting it equally between Alice s life and golf means a lot of his life and career the parts I was most interested in gets skipped or glossed over To be fair, the title and tagline makes it pretty clear what this book is about so it s not like I was surprised.All was not lost, though I did still pick up some tidbits I hadn t heard before, and I even tried to learn some of his p [...]


    14. Probably my 4th or 5th time reading this book and every time it gets better What an amazing story of Alice Coopers life with the band and how he then uses golf as a way to convert his addiction to alcohol to golf Every time I read this it gets me excited to go hit the golf course and use some of his tips and philosophy of how to approach the game.


    15. Alice does not disappoint This is a quick, fun read about the life of one of rock and roll s outrageous characters He alternates the chapters between music and golf, so even if you are not a golfer, you are going to enjoy his stories and the lessons learned that he makes of point of telling about too.


    16. I thought the Golf thing was just a sideline and not a main topic of the book The back and forth and lack of chronological order of the story was a bit fustrating but taken as a Golf memoir with some personal history added then it works Enjoyed the book and the personalization.



    17. There s a certain arrogance about being a Detroit guy To this day, if you re from Detroit, you feel a sense of pride and acceptance and respect Hmmphhh More like a conduit for curiosity or fear radiating from strangers, looked upon as the first generation in our families to walk upright, fully armed at all times, marooned in the ideal locale for drinking a bottle of Lysol, getting stuck in a doomed relationship, and having our throats torn out by vultures, brazenly confident that if we can t bea [...]


    18. He s such an oddity for a rock star doesn t fit the norms I figured his memoir would be a fascinating story It exceeded my expectations All the personal revelations are about him He talks about his parents But he s fairly mum about Sheryl wife and his kids It s clear to me that it s out of a desire to keep those things to himself and not share everything with the world You come away with knowing that he worships the ground Sheryl walks on Name me one rock star who never cheated on his wife or wa [...]


    19. Can t believe I read this, but since Michael T recommended it and gave me the book I found it interesting, not so much to know Alice Cooper better but for the rock n roll history, the insider views of celebrities like Groucho Marx, Salvador Dali, Peter Sellers, and of course the mind of a golf addict.You and I and the rest of the planet are surely tired of reading of entertainers who went through treatment for chemical or alcohol abuse and how they did it Coop what his friends call him he was bo [...]


    20. Just look at the cover What s not to like Alice Cooper AND golf And that photo of Alice holding a pitching wedge dripping blood OK, so the subtitle invokes the recovery clich of 12 step programs and we know AC was a raging lush back in the day.but Alice AND golf Of course, my fandom has limits I loved Alice in his heyday and yes, went to concerts, I won t say when that was though some of you know I m getting fairly long in the tooth , and one of the reasons I and I suppose a lot of other fans wh [...]


    21. I became a die hard fan of Alice Cooper around 1972 when I was just entering high school He was the perfect escape for a chunky little southern boy living in the fringes of poverty and dreaming of a world outside of Wellford, South Carolina A world dominated by rock and roll, theatre, movies, books and magazines, Famous Monsters of Filmland and all things escapism I read the early books, including his first autobiography, Me, Alice The Autobiography of Alice Cooper with Steven Gaines with great [...]


    22. I m a bit divided about this book if I m honest Parts of it I loved, other parts not so much.To quickly skim over the negatives at times it felt a little like a sales pitch for the brands that Alice Cooper is linked to in the golf world Other areas of the book seemed a little braggy for my liking.Onto the positives though, which gladly outweigh the negatives, the book is dotted throughout with interesting anicdotes Now I m not a golf fan but I am a rock fan and this book introduced me to a new s [...]


    23. Ho que j aurais aimer mettre 5 toiles sur ce livre qui m a fait vivre plein de moment heureux par la qualit de conteur qu est Alice Cooper Les premiers chapitre sont totalement magistraux et livr avec une aisance qui donne envie d en lire plus.Vers le milieux cependant on commence voir un peu de redondance et on comprend aujourd hui pourquoi il n y a pas de film sur Alice Cooper Oui il lui est arriv des choses incroyables, des anecdote digne d tre racont , mais part de a, il a eu en effet une be [...]


    24. as a fan of Alice Cooper the musician and performer I suspected I would enjoy this when I chanced upon the book in a charity shop such purchasing it involved very little thought.As it goes this book was a fun quick read some ways you suspect there must be loads stories Alice has to tell and as no lover of Golf I found those bits a little tiresome but still it was interesting to hear of Alice s unusual in terms of contractor lack of with his manager ,the creation of some of his albums and his ca [...]


    25. I m an Alice Cooper fan, and for the most part enjoyed this book.Pros It s Alice Cooper Honesty about his faith I have read many books where the author references vague spiritual leanings but won t boldly admit anything A glimpse of the rock and roll journey without all the dirt There are some rock memoirs that are too much, IMO Every sexual exploit of Slash doesn t interest me, but I now know than I ever wanted to Cooper alludes to experiences without walking you through them It s good clean f [...]


    26. Early a.m December, 1975, I m in Toronto I d exchanged an airline ticket so instead of New York, I was in Toronto And still had to get to the west coast So thank god and the grey dog That was a midnite leave time So I went to one of those new 6 theaters in one cineplexes on Yonge Street And saw the Alice Cooper movie just out I think I was the only one there for the matinee That movie seemed to be the final nail for me and Alice He d got too something, smarmy or showbizzy And I had the news from [...]


    27. Great book I ve been a huge Alice Cooper fan since 1973, so I might be a tad biased Seriously, though, I loved it Alice s wonderful sense of humor shines throughout the book, and even though I m not a fan of golf, I found the golf stories very interesting, as well Of course, a must read for any AC fan, but I would also recommend this book to anyone There are so many fascinating stories, plus he s a great guy who gives back to the community, not to mention that he s still rocking strong at age 69 [...]


    28. It might help to already be a fan of Alice Cooper before you read this book Or maybe you re curious about who he is and have a high tolerance for golf Or maybe you really like golf and can t believe a guy named Alice does, too Otherwise, there may not be enough here to keep you interested until the end Personally, all three apply and I liked it.This is a light, easyily read, personality book It s all Alice all the time, written from the perspective of a man who s found himself as well as Jesus C [...]
