Kirkus -  “In his solid debut, the author…proves himself to be a legit writer…McKagan has a nice eye for details and a surprisingly good memory. He’s proudly raw and harsh, refusing to hold back in terms of language and content… fans will be thrilled by this honest, detailed memoir.”(CLICK HERE to read the entire review)

- Booklist -
 “McKagan recounts his (tale) with flamboyance and an engaging wit.”

- Library Journal 
- “Fans will love the descriptions of the struggles and early triumphs of GNR, but McKagan's descriptions of his equally driven efforts at self-transformation are just as compelling (particularly his meditation on the redemptive power of reading and the satisfaction he receives in his intellectual as well as physical revitalization). VerdictRock fans—and would-be rockers—will find much to savor here. McKagan has packed a lot into his life and a lot of his life into this book. Readers will enjoy the ride.”  (CLICK HERE to read the entire review)

- The Adam Carolla Show" Podcast - October 11, l hour video podcast interview (200,000 downloads per day) BlogCritics.com "After hearing so many sides to this story, McKagan’s rings truest…"Duff McKagan lived the dream, and found out that the other side is pretty much what most parents hope for their kids in the first place — that an education and a stable family are worth a fortune. If this sounds like the "feel good" story of the year, then so be it."

Confessions of a Psychotic Housewife  "If you're a fan of 80's bands, or just love rock music in general, add It's So Easy to your to-read list - I think you'll enjoy it - and no, you don't have to be a GNR fan to enjoy it...now I totally need to pay attention to when Duff's going to be around town signing stuff so I can have him sign this book!"
