    1. Todd on said:

      Perhaps, the compendium of John Holmes. The depth and volume of information is quite hefty; the sources varied and balanced. A warehouse of facts, opinions, accounts, reflections, and fables; pieced together in an attempt to tell the tale of a troubled and complicated life. Do we ever learn who the real John Holmes was? Are we ever sure of the true story? Probably not; and, one questions if Holmes knew the answers himself. What the authors have achieved in this book is a depiction of the many ro [...]

      John Holmes: a Life Measured in Inches is the first book by authors Jennifer Sugar and Jill C. Nelson and is a work of considerable scope, ambition and importance in its chosen field. Indeed Sugar and Nelson have taken a subject inherently problematic – the history and scholarship of the adult film – and rendered it lucidly accessible to all, whether fans of adult material or not and whether male or female. Interestingly in terms of the burgeoning porno-scholarship literary genre, the consis [...]

      This would make a great gift for the Holmes freak in your life (especially if that freak is you). The incredible filmography and descriptions of select films & loops are reasons enough to shell out for the book. The authors make use of copious source materials (all of the DVD documentaries released to date, the Porn King autobiography, Exhausted, the Rolling Stone piece, hundreds of John's surviving films, etc) and supplement their reconstruction of (and conclusions about) the King's life wi [...]

      The definitive biography, an oral (pun intended) history of the life and death of John Holmes. This goes in-depth into every aspect of his life including his childhood and the infamous Wonderland murders. It looks at Holmes not just as a porn star but how he shaped the industry with his life and death, and also as a legend.

      worth a readAs difficult to believe as it is to put down; not usually a compliment I would pay to a non-fiction book, but I'm willing to make an exception for a book this captivating and bombastic. Totally worth your time if you're interested in the subject matter in the slightest.

      Good book.Good book, if your interested in this kind of thing. L last part was not as interesting, but was good to know I guess.

      An interesting read jam-packed with info about his life and times, his affairs, his career and the crime he was involved in that some aren't aware of. He was quite a sad character.

      Really good - but long (cue, that's what she/he said joke)

      Surprisingly complex. An interesting bio about addiction, family, sex and America, especially L.A.

      John Holmes was an Ohio country boy who had a huge penis and an abusive dad. He moved to California and married this real sourpuss nurse woman and the two of them collected knick-knacks until some guy saw John’s pipe while he was peeing at a restaurant or something. So then John started making porno loops behind his wife’s back. Then she found out but they stayed married and he became the king of porn. They had a weird relationship. Then one day a 15-year-old girl moves into his apartment co [...]

      It’s a large, heavy paperback that is almost 600 pages long and weighs about 1 1/2 pounds. It contains many black and white photographs of John and his co-workers along with a lot of photos that were taken from his adult films. There are a couple nudes of just John by himself with his ‘member’ on full display. I give this 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. It’s a definite keeper for me. I really enjoyed this book and thought it was well put together. I didn’t know much of him before reading this, e [...]
