I did go into this book after the whole scandel business went down and I went in not caring if it wasn't uite as factual as some may thinkg Going in knowing this I had a fairly open mind thinking of it as a based on a true story kind of memoir hey if I was writing about rehab I would probably change a few things too However even going in with this mind set I was SO irritated that this piece of crap had ever been sold as non fiction And no it wasn't the fact that most of the book was clearly made up but a number of other things First off there were far too many fancy only in the fiction world events If a crack head runs away from rehab the guy that doesn't like him isn't going to come and help him on his mission If a crackhead breaks the number one rule of the rehab centre they aren't going to give him a second chance just because he is so incredibleNow that being said the second thing that irked me was how Frey tried to make himself into a hero At no point in this book do I congratulate Frey for overcoming his addictions I just don't care because I don't know what's true and what isn't Frey explains to us over and over and over again how he is apparently the only person who has ever walked on the planet that can overcome addiction without the twelve steps All of his support says in this book It won't work James no one has ever stopped being an addict without the twelve steps Well James the miracle can He can stop this just with the power of his mind He is also strong enough to go into a crackhouse while in rehab and not do any crack and as he's leaving rehab he can sit infront of a huge class of whiskey and not drink it Well Good job James You are the most incredible person on earth that's what he wants us to say isn't itThird I hate the bit at the end of the book that explains what happens to all of the other characters You expect every single event It's like the You get what's coming ending It was lameFinally I hate hate hate this Writing style Little picky things I know but I found it made this book very hard to read Repeats of everything Random words capitalized in the middle of a sentence It irritated me to no end in fact I could barely finish this bookI want to forget forget forget this book
