2.0 étoiles sur 5 Bathroom read? Choose your own adventure? 22 avril 2011
Par NPRjunkie - Publié sur
I was looking forward to reading interviews from this journalist. I heard him speak on NPR and had high hopes. I didn't expect it to be chopped up into short pieces of an interview then ended (to be continued) and start with another interview. Then you pick back up with the initial interview several pages in and then switch to another interview before it's completed! It gave me a a headache trying to read through it. I guess it's good for someone who wants some small sections to pick up and read in the bathroom for example. Or maybe for someone with a short attention span. But I couldn't keep each interview straight from the others as I'm trying to recall the situation once the story starts back up again. Maybe it's a choose your own adventure book and you're supposed to jump to the person you want to read about instead of reading it from front to back. Very disjointed, I'm personally not a fan. There's my opinion, for what it's worth.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Life Lessons From The Great And The Late 15 mars 2011
Par Nicole - Publié sur
Neil Strauss has a talent for honing in on the very essence of who a person is. It's an attribute that has served him well as an interviewer for publications such as The New York Times and Rolling Stone, as a writer penning biographical books with the likes of Mötley Crüe (The Dirt) and Jenna Jameson (How To Make Love Like A Porn Star), and in his other life, as Style, the seduction guru and author of the pick-up bible, The Game.

On the surface, his latest book, Everyone Loves You When You're Dead, is an anthology of interviews culled from Strauss' extensive back catalog, which includes conversations with everyone from Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Britney Spears to Chuck Berry, Leonard Cohen, and Johnny Cash. However, the acknowledgements section at the back of the book, which sums up all that's included, isn't just a laundry list of high profile names. Amongst the interviewees are some surprising and lesser known people (Kenny G, Patrick Miller, members of the Calabrian Mafia, et al.), and it's these inclusions that perhaps give an indication of the collection's greater purpose - that of a self-help book compiled from lessons learnt (or not, as the case may be) from those with problems on a grander scale than our own. Because of this underlying narrative, readers are advised to read the book from start to finish, cover to cover, rather that skipping about to find preferred interview subjects as one might initially be tempted to do.

The result of Strauss' labors is an anthology like no other. It's a hard to put down book that not only gives you an insight into the souls of those Strauss has interviewed, it also offers insights culled from the great and the late that can be universally applied.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 So much more than a compilation of interviews 15 mars 2011
Par Erik Ketzan - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I was pleasantly surprised by Everyone Loves You When You're Dead (ELYWYD?). I was expecting a collection of Strauss' interviews over the years, assembled, like every other such book, in some kind of mundane order-- the interview with Madonna, then Gaga, then Bowie, etc.-- I was expecting to read the interviews I was interested in and skip the ones I wasn't.

Thankfully, ELYWYD is so much more than that. The book splices dozens of Strauss' interviews into a narrative so that, unlike most books of interviews, you actually want to read this one cover to cover. The narrative sometimes follows a theme (contrasting different rock stars' views on faith, struggles with addictions, their childhoods, battles with record companies, etc.), and other times explores a particular story (for instance why some members of Pink Floyd don't speak to one another and why Pete Townshend resisted re-forming The Who).

Like most of Strauss' books, this one's a page-turner. I read over 300 pages in one day. The book goes down so easy that it's easy to take for granted how *big* it is, in every sense. It's the condensation of apparently a couple decades worth of rock journalism, and assembling such a crazily entertaining narrative from what must have been thousands of hours of interview tapes must have been no easy task. But as entertaining and fun as the book is, it's also a deep and surprisingly illuminating exploration of fame, art, and ego. It's a major and important book on music, stardom, and, well, the times we live in.

There's a lot more to say, and I'm sure many other reviewers will jump in and say it. Anyone with a serious interest in music or pop culture in general will probably devour Strauss' ELYWYD.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 AWESOME! 14 mai 2012

This is the first book that I've read by Neil Strauss but won't be my last. He's an amazing author and interviewer. Every interview in this book is entertaining. I've learned so much about the celebrities I've admired my whole life by just reading these in depth raw interviews. I really like how each interview is extremely different than the last. It will go from Snoop Dogg to Johnny Cash to Britney Spears to Led Zeppelin to Madonna and so on. All the words from each interview are coming strait from the mouths of each interviewee and not manipulated and twisted by journalists and thrown together for a magazine article. You'll really get to know each and every celebrity on a personal level. I would recommend this book to anyone. I've found a new respect for almost every person in this book based. It's all very entertaining!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Truely Enjoyable Read 15 mars 2011
Par Zorro - Publié sur
I've worked with major artists in both the music and film worlds for 20 years -- but this book at 507 pages will take you around the block in far less time. I'm giving it as gifts to all my co-workers and friends this year.
