Description From:  GoodReads
Hilarious head-scratchers for heavy-metal head- bangers.
Generations of teenagers have turned to the lyrics of eighties metal anthems for guidance and support. After all, besides a haircut, a few pesky social diseases, some short jail time, heavy eyeliner, and multiple drug addictions, what separates the Metal Gods from the Deepak Chopras and Anthony Robbinses of the world? Songwriter-producer Mike Daly brings together their philosophical gems in a collection of Zen Questions, Daily Affirmations, Meditations, and Words of Wisdom. This hilarious gift book is a heavy-metal banquet for the eyes and soul.


A very clever gift book that takes on a lot of the inane lyrics written by heavy metal gods.  There are beautiful pictures that accompany each lyric and this will be appreciated by all fans of this musical style.   You do have to wonder at what was behind these words when they were written. 
This would make a wonderful gift for anyone who likes to bang their head. 


  1. Sounds like a funny book. Can't imagine head bangers dispensing sage advice like Deepak Chopra :)
