Not for the faint of heart, Scar Tissue explores the highs and lows of life after tragedy strikes. Setting her novel amid a compelling hospital backdrop, Debra MacDonald is more than qualified to chronicle the work of a cardiac surgeon.
I just can't believe the things he revealed and I also am stunned his has lived through his drug use. Found this to be very interesting and sheds a lot of light on why he is the way he is. This book affects you on an almost visceral level.
It's hard to put down, but so dense and packed with emotion that you have to put it down periodically in order to absorb it. It helps to be a Chili Peppers fan, but one certainly wouldn't have to be in order to find Kiedis relatable and inspiring. It made me feel spiritually connected to him; like he was a kindred spirit.
Sounds hokey, I know, but it was the first book I'd read about drug addiction that was written as such - it was such a juxtaposition between reading the innermost thoughts of a Kiedis that you love and want to be around, and reading about all of the selfish, terrible things that his addiction was responsible for.
Makes it hard to completely hate junkies. Make no mistake though - don't read this expecting for a tell-all of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. This is strictly about Anthony Kiedis being a fiend and finding a way to overcome that.
The band stuff is incidental to his addiction story. Fans of the band will love this book.Scar Tissue is beautiful.

Sep 17, · Sunday Book Review A World in Permanent Flux. By JOEL BROUWER SEPT.
17, In the musing, sinuous poems of “Scar Tissue,” his new collection, as . The first quarter of this book is a hair-raising adventure. Kiedis is a kid who is born and raised to party; his father is a drug dealing hippie who lives with a stable full of groupies and that sums up the kid’s life.
Scar Tissue is one of the best books i have ever read. Anthony Kiedis is completely open and honest with the reader, he does not hold back any information.
This book gives you an inside look at the bands' accomplishments and struggles.
