* Ciccone says he doesn't hate Madonna, although she has "pissed him off" many times.
* Madonna and Guy Ritchie are having a "hard time" in their marriage.
* Madonna would "probably be one of the most impossible people to date."

* Ciccone says he thought Dennis Rodman (who used to date Madonna) was a "drag queen" and a "bonehead."
* Madonna refused to talk to Ciccone for two days after he stuck toilet paper to her costume.
* Ciccone believes Madonna got a face lift.
* Ciccone says Guy Ritchie is homophobic. At Madonna's wedding, Ritchie and his buddies allegedly would not stop telling gay jokes.
* Madonna claimed John F. Kennedy, Jr. wasn't any good in bed.
* Ciccone left certain details out of the book out of respect for his father.
* Lawyers made Ciccone leave some things out of the book.
* Madonna had an abortion.
* Ciccone says Demi Moore used to want him bad.
* Madonna made her sister pay her way to their wedding.
