About the Author
Author Chris Akin has been a music critic since 1997, published around the globe. He's known for his hard hitting reviews of hard rock and heavy metal releases. Additionally, Chris has been a disc jockey in radio since 1998. He has hosted several shows on commercial and internet radio stations, including THE METAL SHOW on 100.7FM, WMMS and 92.3FM, WXRK in Cleveland, as well as MIDWEEK MAYHEM, THE CLASSIC METAL SHOW and the political commentary show ALL DA NEWS on the internet. Always known publicly for his hard hitting ways and seemingly never caring much for the results of his words, Chris Akin has turned the tables and written LITTLE VICTORIES: A TALE OF DIVORCE, DEBAUCHERY AND FINDING HAPPINESS. With LITTLE VICTORIES, Chris sheds the public facade and allows the reader a rare look into the dark, emotional side of this shock jock, hard edged writer and local Cleveland public figure. Written throughout a painful divorce and the death of his father, LITTLE VICTORIES is a rare glimpse into the struggles one man has to shed the elements of his life that he hates while dealing with major tragedies that are occurring in his life.

(This is my review from Amazon.ca)
WOW....Where to begin? Firstly, I started this book early this morning...and have just finished it. I NEVER read a whole book in one sitting, but "Little Victories" was an intense emotional experience, for me...the reader, and I could not put it down. The book is smoothly written and flows extremely well. It is not an "easy" read as the intense realities described within are very, very strong and sometimes uncomfortable.
I am sure most adult readers of this book can relate in some way to Mr Akins tale. Whether its love, love lost, family alienation, finding oneself, depression,addictions whatever...we all have experienced some part of those human experiences. But I have to give cudos to Mr Akin for having the guts to tell his story...warts and all. He could easily have made himself out to be the dragon slaying hero...but thats not the way he is. Chris Akin comes across as a ruthlessly honest individual who through friends and luck found his way through his seemingly shattered life to start to achieve the sanity and peace that he wants...but on his terms.
He succeeds in this telling of his story. The emotions and experiences he leads us through are very real and ultimately believable. Its an honest story told with clarity and understanding. This book could probably be considered a self-help type of book, but to me its way more than that. Its a story of one mans life...and all the other lives (friends-family) entangled within it that help to make his life worthwhile and strong......and ultimately everyones life is enriched.
A great book Mr Akins...I look forward to more from you.
