Elton John is insightful concerning his entire life , good,bad & ugly. This is a great listen. Elton's not afraid to be critical of himself nor afraid to laugh @ himself. His antics are entertaining , he is a thoughtful , kind person.
Love love love this book! Brutally honest interesting and exciting! No holds barred!
Loved listening to every bit of it. Taron Egerton is an excellent narrator. It is over 11 hrs long but I was bummed when it ended. It let you really see Elton John as a person not just a famous entertainer. He has an excellent grasp of good and bad qualities as a person. Great Listen!!!!
Thoroughly enjoyed this book, and definitely taken aback a few times.
Growing up listening to him and his music, I had no idea the kind of life he had behind the scenes.
Loved this read! Interesting and funny and had me laughing and crying. An honest recollection of an incredibly diverse life.
Must read for all Elton John fans. Well written with abundant English wit and humor. Narrator was excellent and used character voices throughout. Highly recommended.
I absolutely enjoyed the entire audio and book. So looking forward to listening and rereading it over and over again. His biography is extremely raw, honest, heartfelt and a great reference text. I'm embracing to see what happens next.
EJ, first, enjoy your family and children the years go by too quickly. It is 35th wedding anniversary seeing you in Philly and your book and audio was the perfect tailgate to your concert tonight. Stay well.

I was doubtful I would like this book but I did. Elton gave an honest account. I especially liked Taron Egerton's reading. His voice is delightful and he was funny as well. I hope Elton and David have many years ahead with their sons.
Elton John’s official autobiography of his life is a very truthful, touching, funny at times and insightful book about his personal life in and out of the spotlight and it was made even more so by the delightfully engaging and beautifully read narration by actor Taron Egerton. Definitely worth a listen (or two)!
The Greatest Book to read thanks Elton and Taron your the Best
AMAZING in ever sense of the word!! To know Elton John on a more personal level is enriching and how dedicated he is to his fans is such a beautiful thing! His personality is as bright as the colors he wears on a daily basis! Thank you Elton John for this masterpiece!!
Great book! I loved that Sir Elton read the into and the closing .
God bless him and his family - and everything he does for this world!
Loved this book!! Really enjoyed Taron Egerton as the narrator. So good that I listened to it twice. It was so informative, heart breaking, humorous and candid. Recommend 100%!!!
Fantastic book and Egerton is always a treat to listen to. Elton John discusses everything from his lowest points to his highest points. He is great at mixing in amusing stories and of course a few shocking ones. I often listen to this as I head to bed. While the stories can be high energy and thrilling, the reading by Egerton is relatively relaxed and perfect.
Insight into his personal, business, financial life, and music influences.
It does talk about his addictions though so skip this book if you aren’t ok with that. Great narrators.
Fabulously entertaining. brutally frank accounting of an amazing life.
Amazing life story
I loved it! Great stories of his life. The honesty and humor is wonderful. And the narration by both “young and older” Elton was terrific. Just like having someone in the room telling a story. I’ve been a fan since I was a little kid and this was just a fantastic book.
Really entertaining. Read well. a lot of feelings.
I'm not really an Elton John fan and I don't really know his music. However, I really enjoyed this book. It was honest, insightful and very real. Respect!
As successful as Elton John is, he is still able to laugh at himself and share some incredibly raw moments in his life. Loved his book!
Well written, very well read, quite an enjoyable read.
Absolutely delightful! Elton being real is as interesting as Elton the entertainer. He is genuine and honest in this tale.
Absolutely loved the book. I didn’t want it to end.
Outstanding Book. An amazing Man
what a disappointment. i wanted to know about EJs life instead mostly gossipy ramblings with lewdness thrown in for shock value. stick to singing EJ, youre fabulous at that genre.
Fun, sweet. I never knew anyone else liked shredders.
this book was amazing
Great listen about the life of a legend !
