If you are a reader who enjoys autobiographies which tell it as it is with no holding back, then this is a book for you. Having seen the book highlighted on the local news I decided that this is for me. Charlie talks about her sometimes very difficult life from walking the streets very early in her life to reaching the top of her profession by becoming a Madam, her journey is described with openness and honesty. You felt as though you were travelling through her life with her. You experience the distresses, especially the heartache of having to be parted from her beloved daughter, the lows as well as the highs. Charlie also describes her time in prison with such detail that you almost feel you are experiencing life in the prison with her and the strong camaraderie of the other women so much, that when she is released the very moving account she gives stays with you.

One's imagination is then filled with the charismatic and flamboyant lifestyle she led when she became a Madam. This lady also has a very witty and sharp mind and you will also find yourself laughing at her very dry sense of humour. What also comes across is her love of culture and the arts.

It was a book I did not want to end, and as well as giving us tremendous insight and awareness of one of the oldest professions it leaves you looking for more.

You will not find many books as open and honest as Priceless written by Charlie Daniels. Her life story is here and what a life! This is a compelling autobiography and it will touch your heart. Make sure that when you open this book at Page 1 that you have a couple of hours or so to spare because like me you won't be able to put it down again until you get to the end. Charlie Daniels difficult childhood and life as a single mum leading her into a life of vice as a working girl are truthfully and dramatically described. Her rise from walking the streets to the top of the sex industry are colourfully brought to life. Her description of life in prison will change your views for ever. Highly recommended read for the open and not so open minded!

Charlie Daniels is someone we have probably all seen and heard but cannot put a face too immediately. However, if someone mentions Kilroy Silk, personal services, or Yorkshire's most notorious madam the image falls into place. Charlie has created a book that will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers. That should come as no surprise considering the author has developed her writing skills and combined them with first hand experience as a sex worker. Charlie won in two categories of the Koestler awards, writing plus poetry and has completed several writers' workshops building up to this opus magnum. The author's experiences' of life on the street makes for shocking reading and the fact she survived is an achievement in itself. The book is a bit of a fast roller coaster with its luxurious highs and gutter low moments, in fact a yo-yo would be a better description of the quick pace.

The book is relatively slim at 300 pages spread over 29 chapters with an average chapter length of approximately 10 pages. Steady readers or a chapter per night brigade have manageable chunks to digest. The book represents a big piece of Charlie's life, each episode unfolding over about 10 sides of paper as a story of a survivor in the sex industry evolves. Some of the subject matter may shock readers; child abuse, pedophilia, physical attacks, and drug abuse.

The writing style at the beginning of the book is minimalist and direct to set the scene and take you into the sex industry world. There is an absence of waffle and the Spartan feel made me reflect on the skeletal life style the author endured on the street. As the book progresses a richer picture develops reflecting the authors change in lifestyle.

Charlie shares her life on the street with you and explodes myths that it is easy money.

I'm a single mum & although I've made different life choices, having read this book I feel as if I have a unique insight into how girls are lured into the sex trade and what keeps them there so long.

I've previously read one or two books of a similar nature, (previously this was a world I knew very little about), but always felt they were only scratching at the surface - this book paints a frank, vivid & fascinating picture & what makes it essentially more powerful, is its completely honest approach and moving human story.

As well as the vice theme, there are other stories running that had me absolutely hooked; the authors search for her birth parents, her struggle to become a good mother and her attraction to dangerous and often violent men.

There have been some excellent survivor stories over the years, (but im sure a lot of them would have been ghostwritten) so the fact the author won an award in prison for her writting, (the winning piece being one of the chapters)

-is a truly inspirational story in itself.
