Format: Hardcover
An impassioned and gripping writing style combined with raw emotional honesty creates a superior reading experience. Connecting the dots between addiction and friendship with manic bi-polar peaks and valleys, MY FRIEND LEONDARD is the best book I have read since MY FRACTURED LIFE. Part journey and part destination, MY FRIEND LEONARD is 100% gripping, 100% moving, and 100% real. Other recommendations: RUNNING WITH SCISSORS, MY FRACTURED LIFE, A MILLION LITTLE PIECES, and THE GLASS CASTLE.

Format: Hardcover
I hate to read books and James Frey keeps me wanting more. After finishing A Million Little Pieces I was upset to be done wanting to know so much more. Thankfully there was another!! This book was equally as good in my opinion, having finished the book in only 4 days. You can't help but feel for an individual having gone through so much sadness in this second book and still staying away from temptation. I would like to read a book by James now that he is a father. What would you teach your children?

I've only read a few book cover to cover and only two that kept me up past my bedtime; A Million Little Pieces and My Friend Leonard. I love the writing style and attention to detail. I have recommended these books to many!

Just as in James Frey's first book, A Million Little Pieces, I was able to get into his head and feel like I was a part of his life. I cried for him, cheered for him, felt for him. Although I'm away that some of the story is fictional, it is still a great read.

I read it in less than 48 hours and couldn't put it down. Once again we fall in love with a new cast of flawed heros and watch James love and lose and persevere. Once again we can feel it very deeply.

An amazing piece of writing. Worth picking up and impossible to put down.

Format: Hardcover
Much can be learned from this honest and forthright account of a life dealing with addictions. The stroy is enthralling and you are caught up in the whirlwind to fight off the addictions and see that the author becomes the winner. A very inspirational book similr in ways to that of Nightmares Echo and Smashed. Also one has to say that of course it has pieces of A Million Little Pieces as well as in parts like that of Running With Scissors. For a book that will blow you away with courage and determination read this book as well as those listed above.
