densely packed with incident ... immensely readable
A memoir so full of incident it feels like the author's lived three lives, not one.
Dark, honest and gleefully indiscreet from the first page to the last, it puts some of today's painfully dull musicians to shame.
The fact that Keith is still alive to tell the story is incredible.
Life may be the best rock star autobiography ever.
I was hooked from the start
a masterpiece, the most sustained, colourful and rambunctious rampage through his [Keith's] 67 years imaginable
Once you begin this, wild, wild horses couldn't drag you away.
Funny, poignant, brutally honest, engagingly colloquial, Life is pure Keith Richards, as good a rock memoir as you are likely to read.
A hilarious, ribald and often shocking tale told elegantly and with much candidness.
This is a good, gossipy read. But the best stuff is Keith on music. Check out his wonderful passage on Charlie Watt's drumming.
