I receive a lot of books from colleagues and friends. This one I took my time reading and finished it in a night. Excellently written, painfully honest, and even earnest in the telling of how childhood abuse turns highly sensitive children towards drugs and alcohol. Johnnie is candid about his past and the need to take his history and use it to help others struggling with addiction. One of the rare books that I didn’t want to put down until the last page was read.
