He is just a guy...Nothing fancy about Ron...He tells it like it is and doesn't hold any punches which makes you love him all the more...I have seen him in *ahem* action a couple of times and it's just not for me but he loves what he does and he's good at it...He lives a life that most only dream of living...This book gives you a glimpse into his life from the beginning to now and really gives you an idea of what makes Ron Jeremy the hardest working man in show business...

An excellent, actually heart-warming book from the mouth of one of the most recognized and loved porn legends. Everyone knows The Hedgehog, but this book was a great history of his climb to fame. His early years, how his thought process wrapped itself around this way of life, and his goals for himself. You find yourself completely rooting for him - esp in his drive to become more "mainstream" in "regular" (non-porn) movies, and your heart breaks for him each time his hopes fall through. The sex and porn talk are NOT done in a shocking, salicious way. It's more of a friend telling you how he feels, why he feels it, and how it's affected him. Couldn't put the book down and would happily read anything else by him.

* Big note: Anyone with young kids may want to take extra caution with this book. There are TONS of photo stills from Ron's movie (topless women and almost-full-frontal men). Actually, one of the best parts of the book are all the photos he included of himself with celebrities, but some of the "porn shots" may make parents want to keep this book - no pun intended - under covers.

I can't say I've ever seen Ron Jeremy do porn (as I've never seen porn at all), but saw him on the reality show Surreal Life and thought he was an interesting person. So, when I saw he had a book out, I had to read it. The book was very informative, gave an in depth look into Ron's life and how he got into the porn industry. However, this isn't for the faint hearted. Apparently, Ron lives the life of porn in front of and behind the camera. He talks a lot about his sexcapades and relationships; some in detail. Overall, this was a good book and he lived up to the personality I thought he had on Surreal Life.

A well written, entertaining book. An inside look at the porn industry and some of the people in it. Before I read the book I didn't care about Ron Jeremy one way or the other but after reading it I find that I like the man. It is not cover to cover sex but it does cover a lot of sex in a non-titillating manner.

This is surprisingly not all about his porn career. Ron Jeremy is one of the best known male porn stars. While he's nothing to look at today, he was quite handsome in his prime. I can see why he was sought after for roles. This biography is funny and interesting. There aren't any shocking photos in the book (nothing you wouldn't see on a beach these days).

I really enjoyed this book. It was not all about porn, but told good stories about Ron Jeremys life and struggles with his desire to become an actor. This book kept me intrigued. Very good read.
