This was such an easy read, I read it in 2 nights... and I NEVER read books that fast. I couldn't stop reading it, I felt like the writer must have felt while addicted to crack. The most compelling part of the book was that it was so easy to relate to... and so easy to understand the author's feelings and yet so easy to judge and hate him. But regardless of how screwed up he might be, he is freakin' funny. I found myself flipping back and forth between laughter and empathy and repulsion, it almost made me tired. Being a parent myself, totally agree that at some level, you lose a bit of who you were before kids. Would have been nice if it was a little longer to see if he stays clean and continues to be a good dad, and more closure/resolution on the insecurity that was the ultimate source of the addiction. Overall, an outstanding book.

I read this book in a couple of nights, the author is fantastic story teller and the book flows very nicely. It is a beautiful story of self-reflection, the author painfully honest about his addiction to crack. As a women I found his exploration into what has driven him to reject conformity as well as his journey to understanding what is truely masculine especially interesting. If your still a little bruised from the whole "James Frey" scandal don't worry this book is realistic and not fantastical, every page has a ring of truth to it. I was pleasantly surprised by how heartwarming a story this was despite the dark subject matter...this book will have you thinking long after you are finished reading it.

Although finding this book at a decent price is a little challenging, it is worth the hunt. I found my copy at a very low price due to it not having the paper decorative book cover. You have got to read it and then jump over to "Secrets Make You Sick."
