    1. Talk about a title that delivers exactly what it promises. Jack worked as a PA and a chauffeur, which is where we get the stars. If you're a fan of Michael Stipe, RuPaul and or Mickey Rourke, you'll love this perspective of one of their inside people. There's also many other names that appear. He does avoid from doing any tattling about celebs behaving badly. At least any specific ones. Interesting takeaway for me, from his chauffeuring days. Generally, drivers are not to talk to their passenger [...]

    2. Not essential reading but for the most part an engaging and gossipy read. I did lose some sympathy for the author when he whined about 'only' earning 60k a year-and the footnotes were too frequent, adding little to the book.

    3. In the preface to this memoir, our first impressions of its author are given by the actor Mickey Rourke, who dubs Jack Sutherland, with some certainty, ‘the biggest fuck-up I have ever known in the whole of my life.’ It’s a bold opener, setting a frank, forthright and startlingly honest tone for the thrilling yet (quite literally) sobering tale to come.The rivetingly-titled Stars, Cars and Crystal Meth: The Adventures of a Personal Assistant Who Really Could Have Used One Himself cuts no c [...]

    4. ‘Accepting yourself is difficult. Changing yourself impossible.’This is Jack Sutherland’s memoir, as told to his father John Sutherland. It’s a story of dependence, addiction, and recovery. Okay, so what is new under the sun? Is this particular story of addiction and recovery worth reading, and why?I suspect that some of us will pick this book up because Jack Sutherland worked as a PA and bodyguard to R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe, Ru Paul and Mickey Rourke. And, yes, there are anecdotes abou [...]

    5. Star, Cars and Crystal Meth is an interesting book in that it chronicles the true life story of a Jack Sunderland, told to his father who edited and put it in to somewhat a format. The story unfolds like most biographies/autobiographies from the difficult childhood of acceptance and dealing with a dysfunctional adopted family in the UK before moving onto to Califorinia. As Jack, meanders through his life through the financial successes to the emotional lows, we find ourselves with a man who can [...]

    6. *I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.*Biographies and memoirs are one of my favourite genres so i was more than happy to give this a read.A lot of biographies I have read have started off slow, and dare I say it a bit boring, but this one kept me entertained all the way through. I found it to be a real page turner and couldn't wait to get back to it.It starts off with Jack having a good upbringing with his privileged adoptive parents in London but Jack's dad had [...]

    7. A fascinating insight into the lifestyle of so called personalities of Hollywood written by someone right in the centre of everything.I was given a digital copy of this book by the publisher Faber and Faber via Netgalley in return for an honest unbiased review.
