Space itself has been a nasty antagonist to humans. From Aliens to Gravity, humans have not fared well with whatever is out there. Now Sony has released a new trailer for Life, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds, Rebecca Ferguson, Hiroyuki Sanada, Olga Dihovichnaya, and Ariyon Bakare as a team of astronauts who are on a mission to find new life on Mars. Their mission is a success, but as we all know, success has a price.
The eBook deal of the day today for the Amazon Kindle is Life, the 2011 autobiography by Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, for only $3.99 (that’s 60% off the regular price of $9.99).
Note, this deal is valid only for today, Wednesday, September 14, 2011, until midnight PST.
If you’d like to own a physical copy of Life, the book is also available in paperback for $11.10 and hardcover for $17.85.
Richards recently stated that there was talk of bringing his autobiography to the big screen.
The guitarist has lived one wild life, so I can only imagine the kind of drug-filled stories of rock and roll excess that are recounted in his book. For under four bucks, I think it’s worth checking out, especially if you’re a fan of the Stones or would like to read about his journey in one of the most famous rock bands in the world since the 1960s.

Keith Richards, the legendary Rolling Stones guitarist and part-time pirate, is about to become a movie star. Sort of.
A film based on Richards’ best-selling autobiography Life, published last year, is in the works, according to a recent interview the famed Stone gave to the British website The Telegraph after receiving Writer of the Year honors at the GQ Men of the Year Awards. Richards said in the Telegraph interview, “There are feelers out at the minute [but] I’m in no rush right at the moment. Also, how are they going to find me? The idea of a succession of Keith Richards coming down is horrifying.”
