1976, Me, Alice, as told to Steven Gaines - hardcover book

Around '97 I purchased this book on eBay for about $60

I actually had a chance to get it for free.
Prior to eBay I went to the public library to check it out but 
someone never returned it. The library also has a copy
of books you can read but can't take out. Knowing it would take a few days
to read it will cost me money going back forth on public transportation.
Plus I didn't want to deal with the drunks and drug addicts nodding off
at the same table while I was reading. 

So I asked a friend who works at the public library if he could track it down.
It was in another branch of town so it took him about a week or two. 
Once he found it I was able to read it in the comfort of my home.
I gave it back when he told me to keep it. I replied I can't do that I wouldn't be 
able to live w/ myself. Plus I wouldn't want to deprive some young mind
on trying to educate themselves on Alice Cooper.

So the one I found on eBay was passed down at least twice.
First was in 1976 to a guy named Rob given to him by Dee
this was written in the book.
The other was from the seller Desira from eBay. It was signed by Alice.
I think her name reads "Desira" signed "your pal Alice '97"

It's in hardcover and I don't think this ever came out in paperback.
I think now it would be easy to put out on Kindle.
You don't have to worry about print, paper and shipping.
Well I can't give you the text but I can show the photos that appear in the book.
