    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!

    Touching

    Must have been so difficult for this father to put his entire story out here publically. But I think he did a wonderful job and I highly recommend anyone who knows an addict, is an addict, is affected by an addict or is just interested in this topic to read this book.

    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.

    124 pages. A very honest book written from father's point of vie

    124 pages. A very honest book written from father's point of view. I read it quickly. I've never had a child addicted to drugs but it was scary to read about how easily his son lied, how lived in filth, cheated to acquire drugs, how many rehab visits he went to.
