It started off well. But then as the story went on it just got weirder and weirder. Though there were some good points to it. I consider myself to be as punk as he is, (hahahaha what a joke term.) And I too struggled with addiction. So this book came to me at the right time when I decided to get clean and attend NA meetings and work the steps. But e spends so much time name-dropping of bands he knows, trying to solidify his coolness, that's trying a little too hard. And then having rich well known hippie parents of course they're gonna financially support him in all of his endeavors, cause he's spoiled. So he had a good run living the life of punk rawk (yeah cool dude!) then juvie victim, then he rode the straight edge bandwagon, until he felt he needed a 'spiritual awakening.' Which in his eyes was using mommy and daddies money to travel to india and pretend to be Buddha. It had its moments, but Noah Levine ended up to be some pompous asshole rich kid with a huge ego. YOU AINT GAWD, NOAH! get over yourself....
