Iron Man chronicles the story of both pioneering guitarist Tony Iommi and legendary band Black Sabbath, dubbed The Beatles of heavy metal by Rolling Stone. Iron Man reveals the man behind the icon yet still captures Iommi's humor, intelligence, and warmth. He speaks honestly and unflinchingly about his rough-and-tumble childhood, the accident that almost ended his career, his failed marriages, personal tragedies, battles with addiction, bandmates, famous friends, newfound daughter, and the ups and downs of his life as an artist.

Everything associated with hard rock happened to Black Sabbath first: the drugs, the debauchery, the drinking, the dungeons, the pressure, the pain, the conquests, the company men, the contracts, the combustible drummer, the critics, the comebacks, the singers, the Stonehenge set, the music, the money, the madness, the metal.

    " I haven't enjoyed any rock memoirs as much as Ozzy's I'm afraid! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter Stevens | 2/1/2014

    " Loved this book. Went into a lot more detail than Ozzy's I feel. Just a shame Tony got sick after writing it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick Fusco | 1/29/2014

    " Book was filled with a lot of stories I enjoyed reading about for the first time. Tony's humor and personality shined through on every page. He covers every era of Black Sabbath (including his solo album). Plus, the paperback version has two additional chapters covering the death of Ronnie James Dio and his current fight with cancer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 César | 1/28/2014

    " Great read to learn about the real creative genius behind Black Sabbath. If you've ever wondered why Sabbath is regarded as one of the all time great bands in the music business, look no further. Iron Man tells the Sabbath story from the eyes of the man behind the curtains. It may be "easy" to play Sabbath, but it requires a genius to write Sabbath. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Duane | 1/10/2014

    " Well-written and reasonably informative account of the career of the man who accidentally created heavy metal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucky | 1/1/2014

    " It's nice to hear the riff master's story, told by his own pen. I love Black Sabbath and consider them probably the most important band of all time. Therefore, I'm glad Tony Iommi took the time to write this. I would have preferred less ghost stories, but I guess they're real to him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annmarie | 12/8/2013

    " well written book. Kept my interested and could not put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bartek | 11/27/2013

    " If you've followed Sabbath for many years you know most of what's in the book. It was a pleasant read and there are plenty of rock and roll lifestyle antics to be found in it, however, nothing really new. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Snem | 10/13/2013

    " Very entertaining read, he has some great stories. It was a little hard to follow because it was a little disorganized but I recommend this for any Sabbath or music fans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Treanor | 8/25/2013

    " Decent enough rock bio. Written in the Tony's "voice". Not an incredible amount of detail or dirt, just a quick rundown of Tony's life. An easy and quick read. And who knew about all those black sabbath variants! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rex McCulloch | 8/2/2013

    " Very dry and sedate. Hopefully you've listened to the music, because Mr. Iommi doesn't impart much of an idea of what it sounds like. He also apparently doesn't have much of an axe to grind or dirt to dish, even against Ozzy, so the going is pretty dull. Maybe it's an English thing? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 8/2/2013

    " candid and humourous account of tony iommi account of growing and being in black sabbath and about his life in general "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 6/7/2013

    " What a fun read. Sabbath's one of my favorite acts and it's great hearing Tony tell all the old stories. If your interest in rock and metal isn't high, and you don't get a kick out of the antics of rock stars, this may not be up your alley. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theleem | 6/2/2013

    " A must for any fan of Iommi, Black Sabbath, or metal music in general! Surprisingly well written, it really gave me a lot of background information on one of my all-time favorite metal musicians! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ozzie | 5/22/2013

    " This is a solid read, but there's not much for anyone who isn't a die-hard Sabbath fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colin Hodgkins | 5/7/2013

    " found it really interesting. easy to read with short punchy chapters. a great musician and a nice bloke who did not often make the right decisions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shane Mc cullough | 4/26/2013

    " I really enjoyed reading this, each chapter quick and straight to the point (like his Riffs :) ). New Black sabbath album on the way cant wait for that. Lets hope they can get Bill back for one last record. All in all I would recommend this book for any Sabbath fan or for any music lover. "

    " Interesting autobiography, limited by the repetitive writing style. "
