This Is Gonna Hurt (Enhanced Edition)

Music, Photography and Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


This enhanced edition of This is Gonna Hurt features additional videos and exclusive audio interviews with Nikki Sixx.

This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx is part photo, part journal—but all Nikki Sixx. It is a collection of compelling photography and stories that capture the rage, love, optimism, darkness, and determination that shape his work. Combining the raw authenticity that defined his New York Times bestseller The Heroin Diaries with a photographic journey, This Is Gonna Hurt chronicles Sixx's experiences—from his early years filled with toxic waste, to his success with Motley Crue, to his near death from an OD and his eventual rebirth through music, photography, and love.

Love story, social commentary, family memoir, This Is Gonna Hurt offers the compelling insights of an artist and a man struggling to survive, connect, and find a happy ending—a search that fuels Sixx's being.

Customer Reviews

Radical yet Distinguished!

About half way through already and I just purchased today. Very inspiring and thoughtful. Spend the extra $ and get the Enhanced version. Very Good!

Very very good

I'd read Nikki first book The Herion Dairies and was blown away by his story. Then came this book and it has given me a new prospective on looking at people that might look a little different than your average person. So, thanks for that and this book is a must read.

This is Gonna Hurt!

OMG! Nikki has out done himself. I read the book, then bought one for my friend that was in the hospital withdrawing.... It changes lives. Just when you need it, Nikki will make you laugh, bring you to tears, and inspire you to move on. My favorite book of the year! Pictures are amazing, so much talent packed into one man is just not fair, give me some of that! Love the book, love Nikki. A must must must read.
