Ronnie James Dio autobiography due for release in Spring 2012

Before he succumbed to stomach cancer in May 2010, Ronnie James Dio was working on an autobiography. It has recently been announced that the book will be published by MTV Books (at least they're putting out things related to music) in spring of 2012. Manager and widow of Ronnie, Wendy Dio, explained that she had until June 2011 to complete the book. According to Wendy on VH1Classic Rock Nights, Ronnie hand wrote almost everything and didn't use a computer. Wendy also has stated that the book was three quarters written before Ronnie passed away. According to the article on Eddie Trunk's site, the book will feature some 50 pictures spanning almost five decades of Dio's career. Wendy Dio has also stated her late husband was a good storyteller.
This is awesome but 2012? That'll take a while. Still, there's no doubt I'll pick up this book. How can you possible turn down reading a book written by the greatest singer in heavy metal music? If you do and you call yourself a fan, what the hell are you thinking? This should be good!
