I was lucky to win a copy of this book through the Goodreads First Reads program.

This is an incredibly brave and breathtakingly honest look back at a life that initially seems to be unsatisfying to the author. He's been through three marriages and four children, and is basically lost as to why they didn't work and what part he played in their demise.

Incredibly intimate details emerge as Mr. Boyd "digs deep" to find out what happened in his past - the book pulls no punches and he doesn't shy away from the ugly bits. He really honestly explores his past, experiences regrets, and then finds some hope.

Subject matter includes alcoholism, sex used as a weapon, gender roles/feminism and parenthood.

I applaud this author for such a fascinating and brave book.
