About the Author
Chris Akin is not the kind of person you would expect to write books. Chris Akin is the kind of person you would expect people to write books about. For over 20 years, Chris Akin has been a larger and louder than life character in the media of one of the countries most major markets - Cleveland, Ohio. Chris has held a myriad of positions in the Cleveland media. He got his start in the media writing for the biggest free music and entertainment magazine in Cleveland - SCENE Magazine. Additionally, he was a regular contributor for magazines such as the short-lived BUZZARD BONE, the online zine BLOGCRITICS and Chicago's MIDWEST BEAT, to name a few. Never being satisfied, Chris soon decided that he would expand past those projects and start his own magazine. So he started MUSIC'S BOTTOM LINE; a no-bullshit magazine that challenged the Cleveland print medium to keep up as it became the most respected publication for pure music coverage. While the other magazines in town focused on selling advertising, MUSIC'S BOTTOM LINE kept it's bottom line focused on music. At the same time, Chris took to the radio to become one of the most acknowledged and feared radio hosts in Cleveland. Hosting THE METAL SHOW on Cleveland's biggest radio station, 100.7 WMMS and then later at 92.3 WXRK, Chris found incredible success on the strength of testing every boundary that program directors, the FCC and just common decency would allow. Regularly in trouble with station management, but more beloved for their hard hitting style, THE METAL SHOW took the Cleveland Metal Scene by storm for well over a decade. Still, Chris needed more, so he went to the internet where his rebellious ways could go unchallenged, joining THE CLASSIC METAL SHOW and converting the show from a mostly music program to a ferocious, attacking show that had no guilt about anything. While known for his radical and wild behavior, Chris also had another side. As an author, he delves deep into his troubled life to share stories of bad times which have turned out far better than expected. With LITTLE VICTORIES, Chris Akin found a voice explaining the day to day pain of divorce. With his latest CALL ME CHRIS, he delves into the overwhelming pain and suffering he and his family suffered when he was injured in a severe industrial accident. Chris Akin, at his core, is a survivor. His books are showcases of that spirit and ability to overcome.

I recommend this book for anyone who has dealt with or is currently dealing with some adversity in their life. There is so much out there you can learn from other people and their experiences in life. You can also learn how people dealt with it. I will also recommend the previous book entitled "Little Victories" which was a book that was very moving to me because much of what Chris went through in his personal life, I was able to relate to because I had gone through the same things. Pick this up ladies and gentlemen you won't be sorry.
Even though Chris has come back from a lot of adversity in life he has since found a talent that he needs to continue to pursue.......he has successfully become an amazing author. His books are now a blind buy for me and it was such a great read, it leaves me wanting another book written by Chris.
Chris has become a hero of mine because of the similarities we've been through, which also includes our relationships. His last book Little Victories is also close to my heart as I also went through a long term relationship that ended suddenly. I won't say anymore about that book as this review isn't for that book but it is a must read for anybody who has been in a long term relationship.
Anyone will find inspiration in Call me Chris and I highly recommend this book to any and everybody. Thank you Chris for writing this as I've been waiting to hear this story for a long time and know it wasn't an easy subject to look back upon. Being geographically pretty close to Chris I would really like to shake his hand and buy him a beer or dinner someday.
Once again thank you very much for opening up about your accident, you truly are helping people who have been in bad situations, and I highly commend you for finally opening up on this subject.
