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.
As the seasons progressed, he seemed to lose his grip and having watched him effectively grow up (although he is actually older than me!) I felt for this guy who seemingly lost his way.
What I didn't realise, was his history. Anderson isn't a wordsmith, that's for sure, but he tells a frank, honest story of how he went from an enthusiastic and talented skateboarder into the depths of despair just at the point he was due to make it big, then battled his way back. There are still some gaps, in my mind, but it's certainly given me a greater understanding him.
Having just started S12 of Deadliest Catch on TV and seeing Anderson as Captain of the Saga, it's reassuring to know after his struggles he's made it. And given his honest account of recovery in this story, I no longer worry about him losing his grip when he becomes negative on camera.
Hang in there Jake - you're doing just fine.
