Honest to the point of humiliation,
This review is from: Back from the Brink: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
This is the most gripping book I have read in years. I read it from start to finish in 2 days. I had a lot of emotions reading it, including pride, laughter, respect, lack of respect. McGrath was a first class person and an absolute lowlife in the same lifetime. He led a dual life and was dogged by lack of self confidence. If you think you're an addict, read this and you'll probably decide you're actually alright. This guy lives on the edge and I hope it works out for him
The only downside is that it's a little depressing at times and there is no happy ending.
