Book Review: "Fall to Pieces".......A Memoir

I love reading books & today I'm reading "Fall To Pieces" by Mary Forsberg Weiland. It's a memoir that chronicles her early life as a model, mother & wife of Scott Weiland, (former Stone Temple Pilots lead singer). This book is quite candid & very honest.....she definitely offers a window into her soul and the intense lifestyle she lived. The book is basically about Mary's journey into drug & alcohol addiction, along with a common condition called bi-polar disorder.

I found it interesting that the first time she met Scott Weiland (an aspiring musician at the time) was when she was just 16. He showed up to drive her to & from her modeling gigs for $8 an hour. You can get a copy of Mary's book here.

  1. I heard her interviewed on the Opie and Anthony show. What a life!

  2. I have a soft spot for Scott Weiland as Stone Temple Pilots was one of the first bands I was introduced to when I first really started getting in to music.

  11. Another riveting memoir on living with mental illness is Carlton Davis' "bipolar bare" (no capital letters). Talk about a hard life -- drug use, sexual deviation, how mental illness affected his childhood, adulthood, everything. And in the end, it's uplifting -- bipolar disorder is a God-given gift, in his opinion. Fascinating book.
