Great Tension Throughout: Puts Our Day-to-Day Problems in Perspective!!
on 1 September 2013
Just had to write to say congratulations to Jeff on his book 'Cocaine Diaries'. Bought it last week, started it Saturday, finished it Monday. Really interesting, really well written.
So much in it! Nice tension throughout. Often factual memory type books fall flat, not this one. Jeff, am delighted for your pal Paul that he's out and away from all that. The ones that I've found myself talking with others about are the ones stuck in the corridors trying to survive without any money or any family to get them money. They're the ones well and truly in a living hell. Treated worse than animals.
Yep, makes you be even more grateful for your 'freedom' and what you got. It actually helped me when someone was having a go at me the other day over something tiny and what came to mind was yer-man-needed-to-put-things-in-perspective. So yer man failed in trying to rise me; he went away very confused :)
And hopefully the book will, as you say, prevent some people from being tempted to repeat Paul's stupid 'yes' to the flight and maybe even help prod some people to improve prison conditions there and here.
Well done. Job well done. I look forward to your next book.
