    1. I like to read autobiography and I thought this would be an intriguing read I haven t read his first book and maybe if I had this would have made sense.I am not a heavy metal music fan and I found some of the lingo used irritating Brian Welch has had an interesting life, he s made mistakes and he has sought God to help him through the trials of life This book could have been so much , and written so much better.


    2. The book drew me in right at the prologue in the way the words danced across the page From the description of their relationship, it appears Brian and his daughter empower one another in many respects Proof positive how one hand washes the other However, as a diehard Korn fan, I especially enjoyed his accounts of his journey from the band s beginnings to events coming full circle upon his return A great story and timeline


    3. So many emotions I m truly truly touched by this book, and I cannot write a proper review right now It s so incredible


    4. Wait KoRn is a satanic band That was my initial thought when I found out that Brian Welch had left KoRn I was confused it was a song on Issues that made me resolve to leave an abusive relationship it was listening to KoRn that made me want to stay sober Was I missing something What happened I would have given my eye teeth to have been a rock star , hugely successful no less, and I couldn t think of one reason why anyone would want to let that go.I binge read his first three books over a weekend [...]


    5. KoRn is one of my favorite bands, so I had to request this when I saw it on NetGalley I was excited when I got approved and I read this in two days The book is about Brain Head Welch s decision to leave KoRn, get clean and raise his daughter Along the way, he became a Christian, made some music, wrote books, and went through some hard times.Unfortunately, Brian made some horrible decisions and ended up hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt He really got swindled by someone he thought was a fr [...]

    7. I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review I read Brian s first book because I have been a fan of Korn since I was a kid That book focused on his drug addictions and the start of his conversion to christianity and leaving Korn to raise his daughter This second book focuses on his many mistakes and obstacles since he converted and his journey back to Korn Welch aka Head does not leave anything out He takes about his major money issues, personal demons with [...]


    8. This is Brian Head Welch story after he left Korn which is a heavy metal rock band He turned his life over to Christ and along the way he made mistakes Which he chronicles the people that he trusted but does not fault them but looks at himself for wanting to do the right thing but not looking at the whole person even though there were signs for him to see He moves on to how he stayed in music and working towards a christian album and how once those things started to work out he was back on the r [...]


    9. After I decided to consider Luck, Love, and Lemon Pie a DNF did not finish I moved on to reading With My Eyes Wide Open by Brian Head Welch I ve always been a big fan of KoRn and I remember when Head first made the announcement that he was leaving KoRn to focus on raising his daughter as a single dad I knew that he d devoted his life to following Jesus and religion played a major role in his new life I also remember when he rejoined KoRn This book shares his life as a single dad, his tense relat [...]


    10. I ve never been a fan of KoRn, but the cover of With My Eyes Wide Open caught my attention I m always into hearing and reading about individuals who have been impacted by the life changing power of Jesus Christ though, so I wanted to read it This book isn t a holier than thou spiritual book, but a story about a man with his struggles and failures In the midst of all the chaos in his life during the past 10 years, Brian discovered a very real a personal peace and he wants to share that with other [...]


    11. A great book with a strong message even though at times it was, for me being an atheist, a tad bit much religion Nonetheless recommend for all those who want to know a bit about Brian and his relationship with his daughter, his time after leaving Korn till getting back to the band.


    12. I almost feel bad for reading a book that I know is going to irritate me, but my nostalgia goggles were firmly on when I saw that Head had released another book Even though I haven t closely followed Korn for years, I still feel compelled to pick up these books I am also noticing the trend of wanting to bash my head against the wall after reading said books I read Head s first book back in undergrad I remember hearing that he had left Korn, but I didn t care enough to know why After seeing that [...]


    13. This was an inspirational account of Brian Head Welch and his life journey to Christ I would definitely read .


    14. I Love how Brian writes so you can feel his emotions from pain to joy, depression to happiness, darkness to light, hopelessness to Faith I read this book in a day only putting it down to help with homework,answer typical questions of a ten year old, and the responsibilities of being a parent It was so real and true and inspirational to me I related to almost every paragraph You don t have to be a musician to feel the beat and become engulfed in the verses and choruses that rise and fall from hau [...]


    15. Brian Head Welch s newest release With Eyes Wide Open kept me captivated for fourteen hours The time it took me to read his book from cover to cover My youngest daughter is the Korn fan I read for the spiritual journey I was eager to learn about Brian s walk with Christ and was astounded by what He already knew He spoke like a seasoned christian putting away any doubts about His submitting everything over to the Lord Most new christian s are naive thinking that once they promise to serve God, th [...]


    16. I enjoyed this book so much because of Brian s honesty about the ups and downs he faced after becoming a Christian He s so genuine and humble I did not want this book to be over It s mostly about his life after deciding to leave KoRn to focus on being a dad, which means there s a lot in here about his relationship with his only child, Jennea It starts in 2005 and leads up to around 2016 or so, I believe There s so much power here in what God can do in someone s life who s willing to let Him I cr [...]


    17. This must have been brutal for him to write He puts it all out there his failures with family, friends, and finances He explores his relationship with his daughter Jennea, who struggles with her own self worth and with his former KoRn bandmembers, each of whom has his own struggles with sobriety.Brian gets preachy near the end, but you know what His love and passion for his readers and fans is what motivates that How much hatred for others would he have to have that he would have such news and n [...]


    18. This was a pretty good book and very insightful Head is the guitar player for the band Korn He has had a full and interesting life Lots of highs and lows The details of his spiritual side and coming to know God, as well as how it impacts his life on a daily basis are reflected here Head writes in a truthful and raw manner, which I find refreshing He has had a lengthy battle being addicted to meth, and lots of decisions, including continuing to stay amongst the living, which has allowed him to be [...]


    19. The book to accompany Brian s first release Save Me From Myself , With My Eyes Wide Open is an even better read than the debut.Reading about his return to Korn, and the thoughts of his bandmates are intriguing, and the struggles Brian has with Jennea his daughter have you rooting for both of them by the end.A rock hero of mine, I am so happy Brian went back to Korn, and I am even happy that he is now in the best condition of his life and he is simply happy.Read Save Me From Myself first, but th [...]


    20. I love seeing how God continues to work in Brian s life When I first heard about Brian going back to KoRn, I admit I worried that he d slip back into the rock and roll lifestyle but now I see that God wanted him to go back and be a light to the fans who may never step foot into a church or hear about Jesus except through him sharing his testimony and praying for them I have enjoyed following Brian s journey and am glad to see that he s in such a good place now in his life and to see that God nev [...]


    21. With My Eyes Wide Open Miracles and Mistakes on My Way Back to KoRn by Brian Head Welch published by Thomas Nelson was amazing So as always thank you to Netgalley Brian Welch and Thomas Nelson for my advanced copy in exchanged for an honest review I am a very picky person when I choose my non fiction and this one was a true pleasure to read.With My Eyes Wide Open is the biographical account by Brian Head Welch, guitarist for the popular metal band, KoRn Welch describes his conversion to the Chri [...]


    22. I finished this book in literally 2 sittings Again, after Save Me From Myself, a few years back, what an amazing testimony I always love hearing stories testimonies like this, and this is no exception I had never been a fan of Korn in the past but had seen them perform at Ozzfest about 10 or so years ago but I remember a friend telling me about Head s departure from the band to follow Christ, and, being a Christian, appealed to me and led me to pick up a copy of the first book mentioned earlier [...]


    23. I honestly couldn t get into this book I found it to be fairly preachy and the author seemed to have some mental health problems that are undiagnosed he often talks about dramatic ups and downs of violence and anger he feels inside and expresses it as something to do with his religion when really I think he has mental health problems that are going undiagnosed the book was all over the place with the story and I had a hard time following and lost interest the book gets very preachy at the end


    24. Favorite note Brian wrote in his book Take note a lifestyle of continued communication with God always produces results Wonder and awe of who God is and how he launches us into new seasons and destiny sometimes through challenges and adversity Not only is God taking you to the next phase in your destiny with KoRn, but he is preparing Jennea for her own life, calling, and destiny.


    25. Not too bad Great story and very cool to see Brian giving Jesus the glory for everything in his life At times it seemed as if Brian views God like a gumball machine things are going bad, drop in a desperate prayer, and out comes a great solution like an unexpected check for thousands of dollars And when the solution doesn t come out when he asks, then God is letting him down But I guess that is the way many of us are when the world revolves around us.


    26. It was a pretty good book Although the start was rather boring with all the legal issues , it was interesting that it paved the way for Jennea s adolescence, as she mentioned in an interview that she stopped believing in God due to all the bad things that all these Christians were doing to her father and other factors.


    27. Excellent Brian Welch is a very humble, very honest man working through everything that is thrown at him An excellent read Reading this book first will prepare me to read his firs book So many insights If you listen to it as I didhearing Brian himself tell his storyhearing his voice was powerful.


    28. This is such an inspirational story I suggest reading his first book Save me from myself first to truly understand just how amazing Brian s transformation has been You can also see just how much he has blossomed as a writer I m so excited to see what he does next.


    29. Jesus can and will heal anyone from anything as long as they surrender all to Him Only He is completely trustworthy with everything Awesome to read an honest reflection testimony of His grace lived out without it being hella preachy.


    30. Great read and follow up on his previous book I myself when I heard he rejoined Korn was disappointed, but after reading this and now understanding how much thought and time went into the decision, I m happy for Brian This is an open and honest read full of reality in this journey we call life.
