Book Description

4 April 2014

As featured on Deadliest Catch

A fourth generation fisherman, Jake Anderson grew up in the rich fishing environment of Anacortes, Washington. At age seventeen, Jake began salmon fishing in Bristol Bay, Alaska, and by the age of twenty-five he was crab fishing in the heart of the Bering Sea. Soon after, Jake became a deckhand on the F/V Northwestern and joined the popular television series Deadliest Catch. As an integral part of the show, Jake is known for his hardworking nature that has allowed him to evolve from greenhorn to licensed captain.

Aside from fishing, Jake has a harrowing story that has yet to be told. As an avid skateboarder, Jake aspired to become a professional until he was sidelined by injury, addiction, and homelessness. After relentlessly battling back, he was then confronted with the untimely losses of his sister, father, and mentor, Phil Harris. But with depth and maturity, Jake persevered. In his debut book, Relapse, Jake serves as an inspiration as he candidly shares his private journey to overcome tragedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well written account of addiction 2 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Unlike the negative reviewer here, my opinion about Jake Anderson changed for the better after reading his book. I had got fed up of his whinging tantrums & childish declarations of 'You don't know what I've been through, man!' on Deadliest Catch. Indeed, I was shocked to see on his Amazon page that he's 34 - despite the fact that the weather has done serious damage to his face, his behaiour & voice suggested he was much younger. However, the maturity shown in this book, the self-awareness, his intelligent explanation of his addiction and his mistakes - all bely the immature young man we see so often on DC.
As no other author is listed, I assume he wrote the book himself - like his father, he shows real skills as a writer. Yes, there is a little repetition - but only 3 or 4 times & only short sentences. I assume it is done for emphasis but would have been better to have been removed during proof-reading.
This book is an education on addiction and is primarily about Jake's battles - another reviewer complains that he doesn't discuss the Northwestern enough, but the title 'Relapse' would indicate that this isn't a book about fishing! Yes, Jake wouldn't have got the chance to write a book if it weren't for DC but then we can say similar about any autobiography - it is only because of what a person has done in their life that they might be asked to write a book. Jake Anderson hasn't taken advantage of his position - he's produced an informative book on addiction and on his life to date. It's a shame it will only be read by DC fans as it deserves a wdier audience. I hope he writes more as he has a lot of potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest and Real Account 27 May 2014
By Greg O
Format:Paperback
I was impressed by how honest and real Jake was in this book. There were a lot of revelations about drug use, rehab, arrests, searching for his dad, and it was all stuff that never came out during the show. Very impressed, way to go Jake!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 22 May 2014
Format:Paperback
I found this book greatly disappointing. Before reading It I liked Jake and had a lot of respect for him. But after reading the book my opinion has changed a little I think hes sold out!
This book in my opinion seems nothing but a pitty party to make money from the tv show/his followers. :(
Bits of the book are repetitive also.
Id have preferred to have read a bit more about his life onboard the various F/V's hes served on board.
I bought the Kindle version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kudos 22 April 2014
By sunfirechic19 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book represents the side of Jake Anderson we don't see on TV. This is a story of addiction ad recovery mixed in with stories from working the deadliest job in the world. Also sheds some light on stuff we didn't see on the show. It's a short boo, but says a lot. Defiantly recommend it.
