"This book will f*** you up, but in the best way possible. "Running with Monsters" is the depraved, hilarious memoir of rock'n'roll and redemption by "Celebrity Rehab" svengali Bob Forrest. Told in collaboration with famed L.A.-underworld raconteur, Michael Albo, a book this twisted and funny hasn't been published since "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." It's that good." --Evan Wright, ""author of" Generation Kill" "There are drunks, there are junkies, there are bad, hope-to-die, never-coming-back-dope fiends--and then there's Bob Forrest....In" Running With Monsters," Bob has produced a book every bit as crazed, savage, riveting, funny and ultimately, up-from-the-gutter enlightened as the man himself. Whether you're a smack-addled fuck-up, recovering user, or straight arrow aficionado of great survival stories--this is the book you have to get. Bob Forrest and writer Michael Albo have created an instant classic." --Jerry Stahl, author of "Permanent Midnight" and "Happy Mutant Baby Pills" "Countless memoirs have been published by rehabilitated celebrity addicts desperate to relate their toxic tales. You can toss most of 'em on the fire after reading "Running with Monsters. "Bob Forrest's back alley punk rock chronicle of self destruction and miraculous recovery raises the bar of transparency and transformation to inspiring new heights. This book will blow minds and save lives." --Lonn Friend, Author of "Life on Planet Rock" and "Sweet Demotion"
