Publisher's Summary

Duff McKagan is one of the most respected survivors in hard rock. In How to Be a Man, he shares the wisdom he gained on the path to superstardom - from his time with Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver to getting sober after a life of hard living to achieving his personal American dream of marrying a supermodel, raising a family, and experiencing what it's like to be winked at by Prince.

An interviewer's favorite, McKagan's wisdom has been sought out on everything from financial planning and relationships to surviving the summer festival circuit and escaping a military coup. Expanding on his popular weekly columns in Seattle Weekly and on playboy.com and espn.com, McKagan equips listeners with the knowledge they need to rock fatherhood, manage their money, and remain a good dude in spite of it all.

    "great book"

    great read, especially with the band reuniting so recently. nice to read about musicians, where the drugs and excess are not the highlight of the story.

    "Had some good things in it but hated the narrator "

    The book it self was not bad but the narrator's voice was annoying. If it wasn't for Duff doing a good job with the book I would not have continued it.

    I loved his first book. This was a pretty good read. If you don't have his first book check that out for sure.

    "Definitely An Illusion"

    Not at all what I thought it'd be about. Pretty boring...sorry Duff. Just not there.

    "Dig the guy, ..the book didn't have a lot to say."

    I like the album and book lists. ...not in a book, ..but they would have made great magazine articles.
