Présentation de l'éditeur

One day, Dave Navarro decided to open the doors of his house in the Hollywood hills to the chaos of the valley below. The only rule was, "come in the house, you get in the photo booth." The result is a diary, a sociology experiment, a documentary of Hollywood, and an exercise in exhibitionism: strippers, Kurt Loder, Marilyn Manson, pizza delivery boys, Rose McGowan, Keanu Reeves, record executives, Scott Ian, Billy Corgan, hookers, Flea, Billy Zane, drug dealers, Angelyne, Leonardo DiCaprio, the cleaning lady, Leif Garrett, Natalie Imbruglia, and everyone else who came into the house are all caught on film—whether zany, inebriated, naked, hamming it up, looking beautiful, or looking ugly, the photo booth tells no lies.

Accompanying the strips are hilarious stories, musings, tell-all anecdotes, and other glimpses into the lifestyle of one of the most decadent rock stars of our time. This chronicle of a year in Navarro's life is also a gritty portrait of his descent into drug use and self-destructiveness, and his struggle to find meaning. Designed by the mad genius who produced Manson's, Motley Crue's and Mankind's books, Don't Try This at Home is a visual masterpiece, a celebrity exposé, and a shocking, hilarious and irresistible read.

Biographie de l'auteur

Dave Navarro racked up four platinum records and three Grammy nominations as the guitarist of Jane's Addiction and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. His 2003 marriage to Carmen Electra was captured in MTV's popular reality series, 'Til Death Do Us Part: Carmen and Dave.

Neil Strauss is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Game and Rules of the Game. He is also the co-author of four previous bestsellers: How to Make Love Like a Porn Star (with Jenna Jameson), The Dirt (with Mötley Crüe), Don’t Try This At Home (with Dave Navarro), and The Long Hard Road Out of Hell (with Marilyn Manson), and the co-author of the satirical graphic novel How to Make Money Like a Porn Star (with Bernard Chang), which has been banned in Singapore. Under the alter ego “Style,” he achieved the distinction of becoming the world’s greatest pickup artist. Strauss lives in Los Angeles, CA.

Okay, besides the trippy pictures from Dave's home photo booth, this book is as interesting as dry toast. Just brutal. Scattered, boring, egocentric at most times, I just didn't enjoy it all, nor finish it. As a fellow addict with 5 years clean, I enjoy reading peoples personal stories and their battles/successes with addiction. This was just not worthy of any more than a library rental, and even then it's over-rated. I recommend Star Tissue by Anthony Kiedis or The Dirt by Motley Crue, and pass over this el-garbagio.

This is an amazing book, full of details you would never, ever expect. It is candid, open and extremely honest-to a fault. It is an extremely personal autobiography.

Extremely Uninteresting and Boring 27 septembre 2007

I was excited when I first read an excerpt from this book in Rolling Stone, only to have it come out a few years later (legal troubles prob). In the end, it is a bland and boring read about a self-absorbed loser whose life is really not interesting. There is no insight into anything, it is a stale narrative with nothing revealed.

You have to be a dave navarro fan to enjoy this 27 janvier 2006
Par William D. Tompkins - Publié sur
This book is for the diehard Dave Navarro fans only. The only reason I gave it 2 stars was that the use of instamatic photos in the book is creative. The text is nothing more than diary entries by the guitarist. Neil Straus approached writing The Dirt with Motley Crue is a much more creative way which kept me interested. This book falls short unless I would have been inclined to want to see things Dave's way. I grew restless of this pretty quickly.

Strictly for Navarro fans? I couldn't get past more than a few chapters. The other 1 star reviews pretty much nail it.
