    In this brave and moving memoir, Corey Feldman is revealing the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office.

    R. J. Melton says: "Heartrending Loss of Innocence"
    "Honest, Shocking, Sad and Truthfull."

    Story
    Where does Coreyography rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best biographies I have read. I grew up in the 80's with Corey's films. He tells an honest and straight forward truth about what went on behind the scenes. It's shocking to know what most people don't realize child stars go though. After reading or "Hearing" this, I realize it starts with their parents. These kids many times aren't protected. I have a great deal of respect for Corey Feldman that he made it through.

    This is one of the best I have read because he doesn't hold back. The whole book is punch after punch on events that shaped this man's life. I grew up in LA and always have heard stories but it's shocking when Corey validates it. I hope this book helps others. I hope other kids that are in acting read this.


    What other book might you compare Coreyography to and why?

    I couldn't compare it to any. I truly felt this was honestly written. I tend to read old rock star biographies and they don't seem as sincere as this. Mostly because they did so many drugs they really don't remember. I think it took a lot of courage for him to write this book. I am sure it was healing to him because I am sure you will never 100% recover from what this man went through.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was shocking, sad but also brought back memories of my own childhood watching these films as a kid.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book and I highly recommend it. He bears his heart and it's honest. I hope other child stars or parents of future child stars read this book. I grew up in this town and the Hollywood glamour is a big illusion. It's not all bad, but it's not all good.

    Story

    This is a very well written account of Mick Fleetwood's musical and life journey. I have read them all and this is written in a way where he really takes the reader along for the ride. You can feel what he's feeling and experiencing.

    There is a whole lifetime of experience before Mick and John even met up with Christie, Lindsey and Stevie. Just amazing. I had no idea. It inspired me to purchase some Peter Green Fleetwood Mac albums and I discovered a Fleetwood Mac I never knew.

    I highly recommend this to any fan of Rock N Roll.

    The voice of the narrator is excellent. Well read!

    This was excellent. Thank you Mr. Fleetwood.
