Yup. I love basketball. Yup. I'm from Massachusetts. How could I NOT devour this book?! Herren's story is both depressing and inspirational at the same time- since he came through on the other side. But most of the narrative was about the f***ups leading up to his turn around, which is fine, but if you're looking for a treatise on how to overcome, don't bother with this, it wouldn't be detailed enough for your purposes. Even at his worst, Chris still seems like a pretty likable fella, though he's often inscrutable and, when not, you want to slap him. So that sentence makes no sense. Read the book and you'll understand.
