Chrissie Hynde, the leader of the Pretenders, gives us her story. One of the most widely imitated figures in rock: unflappable, vulnerable yet tough, and a groundbreaking songwriter and performer is catapulted into instant stardom through her work with the Pretenders. Chrissie tells of her life openly, with an unmistakable voice, ringing with fearless emotional honesty, a razor-sharp wit, and an enduring belief in the power of rock'n'roll.
