by Kathleen Hanna,Todd Oldham


Only 5 left in stock (more on the way). Originally a New York fashion designer and host on MTV's "House of Style," Todd's career has evolved to include all areas of design, from interior design, film and photography, to furniture, graphic art and product design. Todd is also the author of several books, including "Charley Harper: An Illustrated Life," "Wayne White," "Kid Made Modern," "Hand Made Modern," and "Joan Jett.

There are even some childhood photos included - it's pretty weird to see Joan before she had black hair and a leather jacket. The book is very well put together and artful, lending it the same feel of integrity that all of Joan's projects have. Having recently seen the Runaways biopic, I found this book to be a good companion for that.

Kathleen Hanna (born November 12, 1968) is an American singer, musician, artist, feminist activist, pioneer of the feminist punk riot grrrl movement, and punk zine writer. In the early-to-mid-1990s she was the lead singer of feminist punk band Bikini Kill, before fronting Le Tigre in the late 1990s and early 2000s. In 1998, Hanna released a lo-fi solo album under the name Julie Ruin and since 2010, has been working on a project called The Julie Ruin.

Joan Jett (born Joan Marie Larkin, September 22, 1958) is an American rock singer, songwriter, composer, musician, record producer and occasional actress. Jett is best known for her work as the frontwoman of her band Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, and for earlier founding and performing with the Runaways, which recorded and released the hit song "Cherry Bomb". The Blackhearts' version of the song "I Love Rock 'n Roll" was number-one on the Billboard Hot 100 for seven weeks in 1982.

Rock-and-roll goddess Joan Jett holds a beloved place in the world of music. She started her first band, The Runaways, at age fifteen and has blazed a trail that has inspired and thrilled her fans to this day. AMMO Books is proud to release this authorized, loving tribute conceived and authored by designer Todd Oldham. The book chronicles all aspects of her career and passions through images—from forming The Runaways to her years of touring with her band, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. JOAN JETT features many never-before-seen photos, ephemera, and excerpts from thirty years worth of interviews, carefully curated with Joan herself, covering the multi-decade career of a real rock-and-roll icon. A thoughtful introduction written by renowned indie rocker and Riot Grrrl Kathleen Hanna brings context to this exciting title.

Joan Jett is a revered songwriter, musician, and American icon. In keeping with her pioneering spirit, she went on to be the first woman to start her own independent rock label, Blackheart Records. The Joan Jett and the Blackhearts Greatest Hits compilation was released in March 2010, and a film based on The Runaways starring Dakota Fanning, and Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett will be released on DVD in July 2010.

Of course most people have heard of the legendary artist Joan Jett, but, seldom actually follow her and her career. I recently became a fan of hers within literally the past month and in my nature, I usually research everything under the sun about my new-found love. Joan Jett was no different. Now, with the book, I found out that like many other diehard fans, I too love her and her music. This in-depth text explains her early beginnings when her parents gave her a guitar for Christmas when she was 13-years old to her beginnings with The Runaways, all the way through to her life in and out of the scene of Rock and Roll, eventually meeting with her lifelong friend and mentor, Kenny Laguna, to her up-to-date scene in recent history, the film The Runaways (2010) starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. I'd recommend this book to anybody who has an interest in Jett, her career, or simply for the historical value.

It seems I have been waiting forever for a Joan Jett book to come out. This book is fantastically full of great photos. I definitely recommend it and I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again. Besides the great photos, there is also text in this book and it's exciting to finally read about Joan in a nice hardcover book rather than a magazine article.

But it's a tease. The problem is that there's not much text, not much biography or writing about music in here and I was very let-down after reading what the author wrote in the back, about how much info he has about Joan - that he didn't put in the book. Here's what he wrote: "...I reviewed three decades of printed and taped interviews with Joan, which was a dizzying treat. I then conducted eight hours of taped conversations with Joan and combined the two..." What?! And this small amount of text is all we get? It's such a tease. I'm guessing they didn't have enough time before the Runaways movie release.

I hope there will be a second volume coming someday in the future.

I just read Neon Angel (A Memoir) by Cherie Currie and her book cover was yellow with black writings, so is Joan Jetts book with the same yellow color. Joan started so young to be a guitarist and started the Runaways. So sorry that the manager really changed their lives. It took both Cherie and Joan to fight and after twenty years get the rights for the Runaways. Joan has a very different way of opening up and letting people understand her inner side. The book will show just a bit of her but mostly what other people have all ready known about. I have to thank both Joan and Cherie for making their own books. I don't see any of Lita. That is a bummer. Some of the pictures are very open and show the life she lives now. I am very happy that I found this book.

This is an excellent book, written in autobiography style. It is full of qoutes by Joan Jett. This book is very well illustrated, it's full of photos of Joan & others. This book gives the reader insights of how much Joan loves rock & roll. Also, it contains insights into Joan's creative processes in both her personal life & her professional life. It covers her career with the "Runaways", and also with the "Blackhearts. I have been fortunate, because I have seen Joan perform with the "Blackhearts", up close & personal. Anyway, this is a great book, and I highly recommend it. It does cover the 2010 release of the movie "The Runaways", and the "2010 release of her 2nd Greatest Hits Album". Thanks!!!

This lovingly packaged autobiography/photo-essay combines a wealth of rare photos (emphasizing Joan's early days, extending through her 1980's chart-hits peak and 1990's "Riot Grrl" revival) with short, sharp bursts of commentary, as well as recollections from special guests Kathleen Hanna, Kenny Laguna, and others. Joan's writing wisely leaves much to the imagination, while managing to be revealing and disarmingly personable. Don't purchase this book expecting a juicy rock n' roll confessional: "Joan Jett" keeps it tabloid-trash free, while focusing on Joan's earliest (and enduring) personal passions and her closely-held beliefs on life, music, and the entertainment industry. Think of it as a high-fashion scrapbook memoir of one of rock's uniquely (and often unintentionally) influential figures - who incidentally happens to be a woman.

This is a GREAT book for those interested in Joan Jett & the Runaways. The book takes you back to the roots of the group and the efforts of Joan to start a rock band.
She gives many insights into the "LA" club scene & how a group of teenage girls changed Rock & Roll.
Joan gives an honest account of the of her efforts to form the group and what it took to keep them together. After the Runaways break up in 1978, she takes you into to her world where she was selling her albums out of a back of a car and was rejected by almost every record company.
While reading this book, you really get to know the author. She is extremely talented but very humble at the same time. You sense that she REALLY cares about her fans and she always stays true to her music. I respect her because no matter how bad things got, she never potrayed herself as a victim.
Of special interest is her relationship with Cherie Currie. With the release of the "Runaways" movie, this book, along with Cherie's "NEON ANGEL" gives a rich history of music in the 70"s & 80"s.
Added to the story, there are many great photos of Joan & friends from the 70"s to the present. This is definitely a book that any fan would want to have in their collection. A big "thank you" to Joan for sharing her world with us!

Joan Jett is my all-time favorite rock musician, so I was jumping up and down when I got this book. It follows the progression of her life, from childhood to rock-n-roll legend, with spectacular color photographs documenting her journey. Anyone who is a fan of Joan Jett, or rock music in general, will enjoy this read. Plus, the introduction is by Kathleen Hanna. How awesome is that?
This is a beautiful collection of photos of Joan. I got the paperback but I recommend getting the hardcover. I worry about the spine splitting if I let it lie open.
