It includes a Foreword by Neil Strauss: best-selling author of The Dirt. There's over a quarter-million words on Motley Crue in over 1,000 pages across all 4 volumes in this series - Vol 1. The Eighties, Vol 2. The Nineties, Vol 3. The Naughties, Vol 4. The Onesies - collect them all!

"Nobody on the planet has dedicated their life to documenting the entire history of Mötley Crüe more accurately, thoroughly, and continuously than Paul Miles. Rather than recount the story of the most reckless musical act the world has ever seen in the past tense, this book will guide you through every step of the way as it all unfolded. Pulling no punches and telling no lies, Paul Miles will reveal facts that have been covered up, forgotten, or falsified by every previous account. Get ready to find out the real truth behind the highest highs and lowest lows in the Crüe's perilous kingdom of sex, drugs, and rock n' roll..." Steve-O, of MTV's Jackass and Wildboyz infamy "Paul knows more about us than we know." Tommy Lee "I've read it before and gone, we did THAT?" Nikki Sixx "Chronological Crue is without a doubt the definitive Mötley Crüe reference work. I used it extensively in writing the script of The Dirt and I highly recommend it to not only fans of the band, but anyone with an interest in the history of rock n' roll. For contained on these sweaty pages is a treasure trove of sleazy tidbits on not just the band but the slew of other musicians, critics, groupies, scum sucking corporate-types, famous wives and infamous playthings who came across their path. If Mötley played with them, partied with them or shagged them silly, it's here for all to see. It is a compulsive completist's dream, filled with the sort of arcane minutia that can settle arguments, win bets, or simply allow you to sleep after pondering for hours the exact date of Nikki Sixx's first overdose in the back alleys of Hammersmith. Now hurry up and buy it so Paul Miles can finally feel as if his life has meaning." Rich Wilkes, screenwriter of Mötley's movie The Dirt
