    Nice quality paper Littered with copies of pictures sent her by Fans Rather of these pictures than I would likeAs Debbie Harry was so loved by the camera I was disappointed that there weren't photos of her There were some iconic outfits and classic photos of her published over the years and I expected to see them collated hereSadly notShe skims over her break up with Chris and doesn't really explain why Frank and Nigel were so unwelcome at Blondie's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of FameYes I know the break up is personal but they were such a famous couple I expected a little bit about their split and this is a life story after allAlso I know that the ex band members took out a Lawsuit regarding royalties but they were part of the Band when it sold its biggest number of albums and therefore had a right to be inducted along with the rest of themDebbie doesn't really explain her side of how Nigel and Frank came to be formerly of Blondie and I expected that from this long awaited auto biographyApart from these omissions I enjoyed reading the story of this true New York Punk Artist in her own wordsShe is a role model for the independant artistic woman with attitude and her little punky snarl is what I always remember about her plus Blondie's appearances on Top of the Pops were always a highlight of my weekShe was fascinating to look at The band were excellent Clem Burke is I think one of the best drummers everAnd during that 1977 79 heyday they were fabulous and Debbie Harry shoneI enjoyed the bookShe will be Punk to the end
