    Informative and very well written from someone who has experienced first hand devastation of a drug addicted family member. Read this whether you have or have not experienced the pain of drug addiction with yourself, a friend or family member. It will open your eyes!

    Words elude me.

    I could say: "Wow! What a read!" I could also comment on how very few editing errors exist. But something this heart wrenching just cannot be minimized to words I would use about fiction. May the powers that be light your paths.

    Good point of view

    I have dealt with addiction in my family all my life. This book is an interesting point of view. It does seem to be to be a little bit of an enabler family.

    Gritty, well-written and honest account of the author's attempts to deal with his son's oxycontin addiction. No goodie-goodie himself as a young man, the father writes with a compelling and straightforward voice. Powerful.

    Great book, great dad!

    After reading this book I wonder what is the sons story in his own perspective. How therapeutic and inspiring it can be to publish it. Also very exciting for an intrigued reader like me! Much regards to this author/dad/parent advocate.
