Overview

Born an alcoholic and drunk at 5, I battled the symptoms of my disease my whole life. I was viciously attacked by a predator at 10, then went on to win my battle over booze, drugs and an obsession for women, to become one of radio's most successful stories. Tops in morning radio in Houston and Miami, I ultimately joined an old friend and bought a radio station in Santa Fe, NM, taking the station from "Worst to First" and leaving with over a million in my pocket. Sober and clean.

I wrote this book to give hope to those "functioning" alcoholics who may see a better way to find success in life, business and with their families. It is a HOW TO book in the sense that throughout the writing, I lead the way with what you have to do next.

The key in this book is about the reader's ability to "reach deep" into his/her psyche to pull up the honesty it takes to win the battle over alcohol. More than anything, honesty is the key. Ultimately, that's what happened to me.

    MORE SELF ABSORBED THAN HELPFUL

    After reading this book, hoping to get some help for my adult son, I found myself wondering why I wasted the time or money. The book seemed insincere, and more a vehicle to talk about the great "HOOT" than to really try and help other people through a recovery process.

    His backgound certainly is interesting, yet his attempt at converying true insight and concern is shallow. More like a weak ego pounding his chest.

    up from the ashes

    Claude Hooten tells a remarkable story with an uplifting ending, thank goodness. His story is an inspiration to alcoholics and their families that there is hope if you want it badly enough

    Drunk and Disorderly, Again My Name is "Hoot" I'm an Alcoholic

    Although this man tells a good story, I'm not sure I get anything
    more than be honest, find the lord and go to AA. It's pretty sensational, but I guess that's the point. SEX SELLS. Saw him in Fl; he sure did have a problem. I thought there would be more advise and good pointers. His website is better.
