2012 Literary Award for best Autobiography and Memoir. I suppose most people might have learned something after experiencing a brush with death. It should have served as a wake up call that my huge appetite for drugs and alcohol were out of control. But it didn't, not even after several more near-misses. By age 21, I'd managed to destroy four cars and my driver's license w ...more

This is is a great book for the fast track to healing from addictions. From the author's personal story to an easy to follow process to finding one's way to a successful recovery from any number of life's challenges. A Good Read for sure.

This is the story of one person's journey from alcoholism to recovery and sobriety.

Dan was your average native of the Boston, MA area. Dad worked as a subway janitor, and seemed to come home angry every night. Taking it out on his family, Dad reached new levels in Mean, Rotten and Nasty.

This guy hasn't a clue about recovery. The book starts out interesting enough with him telling his story and all that but dies off abruptly when he gets into treatment and continues with his confusion between treatment and AA. He makes AA sound like a hierarchy (which it is not) and how they force people to share. I have been involved with self-help groups for over 30 years off and on and have never been forced to share or put out on front street as a newcomer. His perception of AA is severely m ...more
