This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx is part photo, part journal—but all Nikki Sixx. It is a collection of compelling photography and stories that capture the rage, love, optimism, darkness, and determination that shape his work. Combining the raw authenticity that defined his New York Times bestseller The Heroin Diaries with a photographic journey, This Is Gonna Hurt chronicles Sixx's experiences—from his early years filled with toxic waste, to his success with Motley Crue, to his near death from an OD and his eventual rebirth through music, photography, and love.

Love story, social commentary, family memoir, This Is Gonna Hurt offers the compelling insights of an artist and a man struggling to survive, connect, and find a happy ending—a search that fuels Sixx's being.

That kind of deep observation and meditation that talks to your inner self. Stuff you never expect to find in a rockstar book. Plus some really twisted pics (That is a quality, believe me).

The book jumped around a bit, but the message albeit good, was shoved down my throat over and over. Then again, maybe that's just what i needed. I feel as Nikki is an old friend who has come and gone my whole life. Very strange.
