Reviews

"A page-turner of an autobiography full of the remarkable stories behind his songs."—The Guardian

“The Desmond you don’t know about is the one who not only taught me the next level of songwriting, but so many of the true aspects of friendship: truth, honor, and loyalty."—Jon Bon Jovi
“I can describe him in three words: Blood, Sweat & Hits.”—Alice Cooper
“He only knows how to write one kind of song… a hit.”—Cher
“I love myself for writing with him.”—Joan Jett
“The first time we met, we wrote ‘Angel’ in about an hour and 45 minutes—and I’m not bullshitting. The guy’s a fucking genius.”—Steven Tyler
“Desmond Child is a game-changer. As a singer, songwriter, producer, and visionary, he has deconstructed and reconstructed the global soundscape, adding an electrical charge that continues to light up our musical culture.”—Emilio Estefan
“For over five decades of #1 hits that stretch across two centuries, Desmond Child and Diane Warren have ruled as the King & Queen of popular songwriting. The only problem is trying to figure out which one is which!”—John Stamos
“Desmond Child… always a threat.”—Diane Warren
"In the realm of music history, there are legends, and then there’s Desmond Child."
—Give it a Spin

“Child is a fascinating character, a candid individual with a multitude of anecdotes. It feels like you’re right there in the room with him as he tells his story. With the assistance of ghostwriter David  Ritz, Desmond tells a life story that’s seen many highs and lows. It’s a  real rags-to-riches story in which Child comes across as a good guy with plenty to say.”
—Rock Candy Magazine
