Danny proved with this book that he has an enormous writing talent that keeps me waiting for another. His writing style made me feel like I was right there beside him through everything.

Danny Sugerman became manager of The Doors when he was just 17 years old. On his drug addiction he says. I was doing a gram of heroin and at least a gram of cocaine minimum daily. I was always looking for something outside of myself to make myself feel at home, to make me feel acceptable, to feel loved. Sugerman is also the co-author of 'No One Here Gets Out Alive'.

Being a "coming of age journey" Danny's story is about struggle on several fronts. Missplaced guilt on himself for our parent's divorce. The interwoven conflict between the seduction of the rock and drug life style as exemplified by Morrison as a role model,versus sober living,our father's world. Danny's final struggle against addiction with ultimate death and coming back to life is pretty wrenching stuff. I keep copies of Wonderland in my office and frequently give one to young patients that seem troubled with similar issues. Danny never thought of himself as "great author". However, his story has a universality about it which makes reading it a touchstone in the lives of a lot of people. I get letters expressing thanks and telling me of the impact Wonderland Ave had on them. Before he died of lung cancer, I told my brother that he had immortalized himself and his times. He laughed softly, but it seemed to comfort him quite a bit.

I fell in love with this book. It swept me on a profound journey. Few books have hit me so hard. It's very well written, and very honest. It has a lot of dark humor along with real sadness. Danny let us get to know him on a deep level, and I appreciate that most of all. His words on the allure and the horror of addiction, especially his all-consuming heroin addiction, are so powerful and at times poetic. I understand it much better now than I did before. And I have taken his warnings to heart. His story is a tragic build up that ultimately results in a transcendent, uplifting realization. I think he was heroic to write this book. And his lifelong passion and dedication to the Doors was really something special. Truly a remarkable person.

I ordered this for my son, who is an addict, musician, and currently in jail. He was really inspired by this book, (plus he is a huge Doors fan) and thanked me several times for bringing it. He passed it along to his cellmate to read, and then it will be donated to the jail library in hopes it can inspire a change in others as well.

It is NOT moralizing. It is a super fun read! It is NOT a dry lecture about the dangers of drug addiction - read it because it is fun! That it has a 'message' is a bonus - the book itself is a masterpiece!

I love this book! I've read it twice and could not put it down! Danny's writing style is superb! I have read LOTS of books and this is my #2 favorite book of all time (after The Mists of Avalon)!

Very decadent but has tremendous redeeming value. Danny was press manager for The Doors, and this is his story....Witty, funny, outrageous! Danny's style of writing is SO incredible you really can't put this book down! (well after the first chapter anyway). And there is a bonus: after reading this with my son, he decided to become straight-edge! Note: has lots of sex, drugs, and rock n roll, not to mention excessive profanity. Not for the squeamish.

Interestingly, all of the reviews rave about this book except for one, and that one is by someone who obviously is very self-righteous and couldn't handle the sex drugs rock n roll. Too bad. His loss.

This is a fantastic autobiography of Danny Sugarman. Sugarman was one of the closest people in The Doors' circle. He met Jim Morrison and The Doors at a very young age and was instantly entranced by Jim. This is an account of that as well as the effect that Jim's death had on Danny. It also shows other areas and/or people that Danny was involved with. Lots of excess, the whole sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll experience. This is not always presented in the glamorous way that most people think this lifestyle entails. Danny remained a part of The Doors family right up until the day he died. It is a great read and I will definitely be rereading it again.

So I bought this book for the third time because everytime I loan it out I don't get it back. I am not loaning this book out anymore. I love Danny's writing style. I feel like I am back in the 60s and 70s with him. I've been caught laughing out loud to myself because he is so sarcastic and funny.

The book also has a lot of juicy bits. Most obviously about the Doors and Iggy Pop. There was a chapter where he was hanging out with Mackenzie Phillips (14 at the time) and he had saved her from being gang raped along with other shocking accounts.

Some parts of the book are very disturbing. It is sad at times and the length he goes to to score heroin will scare anybody straight. He was lucky to have even survived his youth.

You have to read this book. It is wild, funny, shocking, extreme, and very raw, real and exciting.
This was an amazing book. I enjoyed the book from start to finish. I loved reading of the relationship between Danny and Jim Morrison. I wanted to cry when Danny found out about Jim's death and how he dealt with his grief. There was no sugar coating the level of his addiction and what he did to score drugs. Great book - must read.
