Told in a very adolescent voice, this poorly written, poorly edited book should be avoided. I feel very strongly that the bulk of the "reviewers" are simply Todd himself. I regret this purchase. I gave my honest opinion, but nonetheless a negative review, right here on amazon last year after I read the book. I was not nasty but stated that I thought the book was sophomoric and did not recommend it. The day I posted my review I was inundated with "feedback" from reviewers I suspected were the author himself (or friends), very emotionally abrasive, defensive, attack responses. I was called names, told I was a bad person and insensitive to this man's "heroic" journey, told by one "reviewer" that his son died of drugs and I should be ashamed. I was told not to write nasty things. To which I thoughtfully responded that I'd hoped an author could handle reviews, critical or acclaim. I was not looking for a battle. But the next response was creepy. A reviewer had gotten into my purchase history and my baby registry and proceeded to bully and taunt me, asking me how was my childbirth, how was my family and my new son. It freaked me out so I deleted my whole account. I've never encountered anything like this. I have no reason to be ugly here, but it's my right and my honest opinion that this book is the worst book I've ever, ever read. I'm more prepared now to handle psycho bully replies, I will take them straight to amazon.

I wish Todd had waited to write this book with a few more years of recovery under his belt. His stories of partying and bravodo turn the reader off to the real message of the horror of addiction. They say a person stops maturing when they start using, which for Todd was age 12. In essence this story is told from the voice of a 13-14 yr. old. I do believe people will find inspiration in the fact that he has found recovery. I hope Todd all the best as he continues along his path.

This is a very tough tale of addiction. It's clear that the author had a really bad drug problem, which he describes in detail, but little is said about the rest of his life. He "sold insurance"...enough to fund one of the most brutal addictions I've ever heard of? Lots of typos as well, plus needs editing. Still, it's a riveting story underneath. Kudos to the author for self publishing.

I too have read this disaster. I have met Todd and he is a huge self-promoter because his ego is ginormous. However, he cannot write well or live in reality, which is why he can't stop himself from countering all the negative reviews. The bad reviews for this book here on Amazon are true; I would bet that most, if not all, of the 5-star reviews are by Todd's alter-egos (look into the history of some of them) or anyone he could talk into writing one. I'm not an enemy of the man; I just think it's terrible to sell a book this way. There are amazingly good books dealing with addiction and recovery...this is not one. Somehow he got an appearance in the documentary "Behind the Orange Curtain" and he mentioned this book several times. It made me sick to my stomach. Orange Curtain was a serious film, and there he was pitching his stupid book. No one else who appeared did any such nonsense.

I got this hoping to gain insight into a family member's addiction to prescription pain killers. It is more an autobiography of the young mans exploits and troublemaking. It may be entertaining if that is what you are looking for. I wanted a serious insight to recovery.

A 10 year old could probably write this book. It is soooo choppy and underwritten, I couldn't even finish it!

Who edited this? Seems like a self published memoir from the worst writer with the biggest ego ever. Save your money.

There is something wrong here. I have never encountered a book as sophomoric as this.I find it hard to believe that this was a serious attempt at writing. If this had been presented as "work" in an English 101 class it would have been returned to the student as unacceptable.I can only conclude that this book is a scam of some sort. The best thing about it was the title. All downhill after that.
