About the Author

Nick Carter, best known as an incredibly talented member of the Backstreet Boys, has endured a very public struggle with addiction, family turmoil and health issues since the tender age of 12 years old. Together with the rest of the wildly successful boy band, he recorded multiple albums beginning in the1990s and continues to record and perform with them in 2013. Riding the wave of BSB's worldwide fame, Nick also released two solo albums and starred in a hit reality TV show, “House of Carters,” with his four siblings before the tragic death of his sister, Leslie. Carter has not made a secret of his ongoing fight with drug and alcohol abuse over the years he's spent in the public eye, but this book is his first complete account of his tumultuous life and pop-star lifestyle. Determined to use his own story to help change the lives of others battling their own demons, Nick writes this book with an open heart and a deep desire for truth and honesty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest and from the heart Sept. 12 2013
By Nicky
I just preorderd this book last week and was surprised to receive it so early. To be honest i Just wanted to have it to add to my collection. I read the first half of the book in one night. I found it very hard to put down.

I would have to say that I have a totally different perspective of Nick Carter after reading this book. I feel he wrote this from his heart. You can tell that this is in his words. He is ever open and honest about his feelings and what he would like others to experience in their lives. He speaks from experience. He wants the best out of you and even tries in ways to guide you to improve yourself. Being a Backstreet Boys fan for so many years and just enjoying the music I never realized what this Man has gone through in his life. The things that this man has gone through in his life as a child, its incredible that he has grown into such an amazing person that he has grown into.

If you are interested in finding out more about Nick's journey then this book is for you. If you are in a place where you feel like you want to be better or do better then this book is for you. If you are in a place in your life and feel like there is nothing else for you... THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU.

It takes a very brave person to put on paper what he has. Just read it and it will change you. It has changed me. Im pretty sure that you will love it. I know i did.

There are parts of the book where there is space left for personal notes. LOVE THAT. This is not a one time read. I recommend this book 100% for anyone that is a BSB fan but really for anyone that wants more for themselves.

Very proud to have met this man and I cant want to tell him in person how much this book has moved me.

There was really only one reason I was initially interested in picking up this book. NICK CARTER WROTE A BOOK! How could I not want to read it? BSB were my life growing up and I'm still a huge fan. I'd read or watch anything any of the band were to put out. And I'm sure that's the same for a lot of people that pick up this book. So I really didn't bother to read what it was about. I figured I get a look into Nick's life in one of my favourite bands. Wrong. But pleasantly surprised about what I did find inside.

This book is definitely quite a bit memoir/autobiography. But also has the self-help vibe too. Nick is pretty candid about his life. He's had many demons to battle growing up. And unfortunately being famous, some of that has played out through media outlets. Being a fan (I guess a fangirl would be the appropriate term these days), I read all the magazines and such throughout the 90's and 00's. I remember reading about his tough upbringing and his dating Paris Hilton and some of his partying, etc... But I never knew how bad his drug and alcohol abuse really was. After reading this, to say that I'm surprised he's actually alive today is not an understatement. He delves right into the affect his home life had on him becoming a child star. Hard drugs, alcohol and partying became his getaway. And as we all know, he's not the only Hollywood Star out there that this becomes their lifestyle as well. The fortunate part is Nick was eventually able to seek help and live to see another day.

This book is actually quite enlightening into how far Nick has come. He may not be a professional, but telling his story and providing feelings, thoughts and advice on what has helped him overcome his darkness is never a bad thing.
