This book has done so much for me. It's a memoir of a drug addict that I picked up on a whim because I saw it on the shelves at a doomed Borders for 75% off and thought it sounded interesting. I'd never heard of Nic Sheff before. Now I'm so glad I did.

In reading this book and reading through his struggles, I began to recognize myself. Not with the addiction to substances, but the addiction to people, the out of control thoughts, etc. When I got to where he mentioned being bipolar, I was floored. He was exactly like me. Here I had been putting off going to therapy and getting help for so long- years, actually. This book- Nic Sheff himself- inspired me to go get help. And if that's not what a good author does then I don't know what- they inspire people to better themselves. I'm about to read Tweak for the first time, but I have a feeling We All Fall Down is going to remain my favorite.
