Ville's in a new book  
credit Jarmo Katila, scanned from the book "The Successful Rebel" by Tracey Cox

http://www.thesuccessfulrebel.com/ more information about the other people in the book.

The book is 163 pages long and the author's conversations with Ville are through out the book. Each chaper deals with a different subject matter, such as marriage, religion, relationships, childhood, business, life in general and even feminism. The premise is how you can be successful and stay true to yourself, never compromising your beliefs.

Here are 2 paragraphs from the introduction of the book, describing what it's all about

There are many long, in depth conversations with Ville, here's just a small, personal excerpt.

Working musicians, especially those that are touring experience one of the most dissruptive, relationship killing schedules known to man. Ville Valo knows this all too well.

Ville: I'm occasionally fairly lonely, but let's say the occasional loneliness compared to the purgatory of a dysfunctional relationship....let's say I'm fine with the solitude right now.

Tracey: Absolutely, I completely understand. Being in a bad relationship is torture. I have an ex husband, and it was difficult for quite a while.

Ville: Yes, but it was probably some good times as well, to keep the whole thing going.

Tracey: Of course, but you dont go into it thinking "boy, I'd like to torture myself for a few years, so here I go".....

Ville: Some people do...

I really enjoyed the book and getting inside of Ville's thought process. If you have an extra $25 it's worth buying.

I was so excited to get the book that I scared my kitty!

The introduction goes on for 2 pages, that's just a small bit. She says at the end "let your freak flag fly" lol.

I ordered it last week from amazon. It's also on the Barnes and Nobel web site. I couldn't find it in any book store where I live.

Sorry about the bad scan. It's a small picture and it's printed on very thin paper. There's one more picture in the book, but it's nothing special, just a live shot from the 2007 VD tour.

Glad it was money well spent. Gotta get my copy now, then.

My kitty and I will be ordering ours very soon. I'll read it, he'll sleep on it. That's usually how it goes with any reading material I buy...

It's a great picture and the book sounds like an interesting read. You've talked me into buying it. Thank you for posting.

Even the bit I've read so far is extremely interesting! Thanks so much.

Thanks for posting this review, elegy. I am absolutely ordering this book. I think that anyone who is unconventional in the slightest sense and trying to start a business or their education or figuring out what they want out of life would benefit from it. Plus, Ville interview... Need I say anything else?
nailedtoacross on November 5th, 2009 02:42 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the reminder, i had it on the list for Christmas :)

thank you so much for your kind words. I'm surprised that the book was delivered so fast. I haven't even recieved my shipment yet!

Do you think that you could possible post your sweet review on Amazon.com? It would be most appreciated.

And also, I'd like to ask that no one scans the whole book or just Ville's sections and posts them. Thank you in advance.

Tracey Cox xoxo
