    • I loved this book. Just absolutely loved it. Everything David Sheff says, it's everything. This book is going to be so quoted and highlighted by me, I will never let it go. Thank you David Sheff for putting your words, your feelings and your story down in writing for the rest of us.
    • Nearly every parents' nightmare brought to the pages. A father brave enough to tell the story of his meth addicted son and their painful journey through. He brings to life the questions of what to do best to help your child when they need you most. Not written as a self-help book or as a cure-all of what to do, just what his ordeal was and what he felt going through it. His heart is more than on his sleeve - he brings it out for us to see, battered as it got. A story of heart and hope. And love.
    • Although this book was long, and sometimes tedious the story was very powerful. This is not the kind of book I usually read. I'm more of a horror fan. But the subject matter caught my eye. In this day and time we all have been affected by drug use. In my case it is my nephew. As of now he is in rehab AGAIN, I don't know how many times he has been there. I can sympathize with the author. I feel like he did a wonder and realistic job of telling about his son's addition. I would recommend this book highly. Actually, I hardly ever recommend books. But I called my sister and told her she needed to read this book.
    • An honest portrait of addiction and how it affects family and friends. Sadly this is not a unique situation but reading the book educates the reader providing a better understanding of addiction.
    • This book is a must read/listen. I love it and honestly it is very informative as well as tear jerking. I love it. It's honest and that's important. It tells a story that I think a lot of people don't really understand about drug abuse.
