    2. This is a really strong read yes, it s what my AA friends might call a drunkalog , but it s also somewhat entertaining it s a man being totally honest with his life, yet giving it a gloss that doesn t glamorize his activities, but shows the harshness and devastation of drinking on his life Definitely worth a read.

    4. This book was not at all what I expected I expected another boring self help book about how to get your life back on track This book, however, is thoroughly exciting and fascinating It s not a self help book by any definition I highly recommend it.
