really liked it

Benoit Denizet-Lewis' fascinating book is one of the most interesting books on addiction I have read. The author himself is a sex addict and he takes three years outo f his life to follow eight addicts in their search of recovery. They range from a heroin addict in Southie to a crack addled grandmother in Harlem and they are some of the most poignant and interesting individuals. Denizet-Lewis perfectly nails the concept of addiction and instead of blaming moral failings, he perfectly makes the case and explains the true nature of addiction. This is a great book.
