24. Nikki Sixx: 'The Heroin Diaries' (2007)

This one gets the "truth in packaging" award – Nikki Sixx does so much heroin in this book it should have come in an aluminum-foil dust jacket. It's more personal than The Dirt, but just as juicy. It might be cheating to mention The Heroin Diaries on a list like this, since there's barely any mention of his music, but anyone even vaguely interested in Motley Crue is going to be fine with that.
