Strangely brilliant...a totally different book.
I lost sleep not being able to put this down because it’s so engaging!
This really is the bravest, most open and honest book I have ever read.

This was my favorite memoir I have read in many years. Cannan's life is a story worth telling and his ability to bring his past into sharp focus with gifted writing kept me turning the pages with my nervous system on high alert. A gripping redemption story well-told by a gifted writer with something to say. This book gets my highest recommendation.

Such an honest and open book where you will laugh, cry and be extremely shocked! I literally couldn't put this book down and now I've finished it I want to read it all over again. Michael shows that anything is possible if you want it to happen and I have no doubt that this will help many others. He truly is an inspiration.

I'm not really one for writing reviews but I think this book deserves one. It's a brilliantly written book, I couldn't put it down from start to finish. You can tell that Michael has put his heart into this book and it shows in the writing. It's a book that I could read over & over. If I could give 10 stars I would.
This really is the bravest, most open and honest book I have ever read. It made me laugh, cry, physically sob, sometimes cringe and then laugh again.
Extremely raw and honest...The book is extremely well written and leaves no room for you to come up for air. Do not expect a skimmed over version of a downward spiral in to addiction. Be prepared to get angry, cry, laugh then and cry some more. Exceptional book.
This is the most amazing book I've read in a very long time. I was totally hooked from the first chapter...and it just seemed to get better. The bottom line here was one of the authors deep down desire to live a full and balanced life. His own strength of character is coupled with acceptance that something had to change - and a wonderful sense of humour. It gives hope to all of us whatever our situations might look like. Fabulous - and I'd highly, highly recommend it.

I was blown away by the honesty of Michaels writing. It must have been tough to pen such an open, frank and gritty read. It will at times make you feel uncomfortable, question your own life decisions and close calls. I can see this being an inspiration to individuals in the grip of the demons around them and give hope to their family and friends.
This book captured me immediately. It portrays the harsh reality of how and why ANYONE can get addicted to alcohol and drugs, especially people who you wouldn't expect to. It gives the harsh realities of the harm caused to people around the addict but also shows that there is a road to recovery. Every page had your attention.
Wow. What a funny, heartbreaking, inspirational book about addiction, raw and honest. Very well written. I read it virtually non stop.

Couldn't put this book down. Well written and a brave, honest and at times hilarious account of very difficult experiences. Would recommend to all.

A great read - gripping from start to finish. Highly recommended for anyone who has struggled with addiction, or simply to find their own way in life. A brave, humerous and graphic account which shows how easy it is to make the wrong decisions in life, whilst demonstrating that the only person that can truly help you is yourself.

As a Manxman, I was attracted to the book cover and read the intro. Fully hooked this book was a two session masterpiece. A fantastic portrayal of a young man struggling with demons and his memoir is truly remarkable I recommend this to anyone with a heart.
