    Um, alright I am not really sure how to review this book Allegedly it s about a boy coming of age under the specter of his father s cocaine addiction First of all, he s in college by page 44 so it s not really a childhood story Also, for the first half of the book, you could replace getting high with working and not have to change anything else Kid has charismatic and often absent father welcome to the 1970s 1980s Where was the grit The horrible, life changing moments There were n Um, alright I am not really sure how to review this book Allegedly it s about a boy coming of age under the specter of his father s cocaine addiction First of all, he s in college by page 44 so it s not really a childhood story Also, for the first half of the book, you could replace getting high with working and not have to change anything else Kid has charismatic and often absent father welcome to the 1970s 1980s Where was the...

    I was willing to play along with the author s hyperbolic memoir until the anedote about how installing a ceiling fan with his father dismantled their relationship and all the progress they had made in counseling Oh, it took an extra day to install the fan after hiring someone off craigslist There were ladders in his apartment all day His dad said whoost too many times The horrors Hopefully the author grows up by the end of his story, but I decided there are many books I d rather read in I was ...

    I so wanted to like this book After all, I m a big fan of stories of recovery and redemption and one of my guilty TV pleasures is the AE show, INTERVENTION But the book was a disappointment from the very beginning For a topic so freighted with the potential for drama a childhood shadowed by the specter of addiction , this was curiously bland The writing, although it was competent, clear, and simple, was also colorless and flat The author seemed to ramble and never develop themes that I so wanted to like this book After all, I m a big fan of stories of recovery and redemption and one of my guilty TV pleasures is the AE show, INTERVENTION But the book was a disappointment from the very beginning For a...

    Memoirs are understandably intensely personal for the author but they should be relatable as well Unfortunately this book only fell into one of those categories I appreciated that the book was not necessarily constructed chronologically but reflecting on the past as the author experienced things now Our present always colors our recollections and it was easy to see how Itzkoff s childhood with an addicted father made him the man he is today but also how the man he is now affects his view of t Memoirs are understandably intensely personal for the author but they should be relatable as well Unfortunately this book only fell into one of those categories I appreciated that the book was not necessarily constructed chronologically but reflecting on the past as the author experienced things now Our present always colors our recollections and it was easy to see how Itzkoff s childhood with an addicted father made him the man he is today but also how the man he is now affects his view of the past This is hard to say since they are real peop...

    I don t know quite what to say about this book I will say that I m glad that I listened to it as an audio book on my drive to and fro from work and didn t waste time actually reading it.While David Itzkoff seems like quite a pleasant guy, his father does not His father seems altogether unpleasant, but that nastiness does not appear to be related to his cocaine use His father did unpleasant things, whether he was high or not However, Dad never did anything quite unpleasant enough to warrant a I don t know quite what to say about this book I will say that I m glad that I listened to it as an audio b...

    First off, I have to clarify my rating for this book I really enjoyed it, but had to take one star away because of all the typos It was so bad it actually distracted me from reading at some points I did receive this book in a giveaway as an advance copy, so I m hoping there will still be someproofreading and edits done.Other than that, I really enjoyed Itzkoff s portrait of his father and their relationship It was painful, complicated, but also simple, in the ways that many people stru First off, I have to clarify my rating for this book I really enjoyed it, but had to take one star away because of all the typos It was so bad it actually distracted me from reading at some points I did receive this book in a giveaway as an advance copy, so I m hoping there will still be someproofreading and edits do...
