    Phenomenal story of redemption, second chances, and never giving up. Told and read from the heart by the author. I suffer from an addiction as well and this book is welcomed ammo in my arsenal belt to help me continue the fight on my voyage of sobriety. Thank you Joe for sharing your story.

    This book has inspired me to do more. I loved listening it by Joseph himself, and could hear the emotion in his voice.
