With a new introduction by Nick Rhodes
The talent. The charisma. The videos. From their 1981 hit "Planet Earth" to their latest number-one album, All You Need Is Now, John Taylor and Duran Duran have enchanted audiences around the world. It's been a wild ride, and—for John in particular—dangerous. John recounts the story of the band's formation, their massive success, and his journey to the brink of self-destruction. Told with humor, honesty—and packed with exclusive pictures—In the Pleasure Groove is an irresistible rock-and-roll portrait of a band whose popularity has never been stronger.

A genuine and gracious glimpse
This was such an enjoyable read. It was honest, funny, sad, uplifting....genuine. It is not often you get an autobiography that has such a truly interwoven story. This was a really well done, holistic story that started with earliest memories and took you through 2011. Personally, I think this is a story of faith and finding unconditional love from your God. I think the story of Duran is included to sell the book, thus sharing the message. Life. Love.
Like many, I do wish there was more about handling addiction and the reunion; however, I don't think this personal edit marginalized the story. We (as fans) have always just wanted everything, haven't we?
The digital deluxe version is a MUST for any true Duran fan. It is well designed, interactive, and beautiful to view.
Thank you John for doing such a fantastic job. It is sooo nice to discover more about you through the book and the book events and see a glimpse that indicates you really are the person we all have thought for years, decades, you are--a genuine guy.
Good job JT
I thought this book was fantastic to read I even cried at the end sorry John I know how it is to lose a parent.
