This is one of the best biographies I have read. I grew up in the 80's with Corey's films. He tells an honest and straight forward truth about what went on behind the scenes. It's shocking to know what most people don't realize child stars go though. After reading or "Hearing" this, I realize it starts with their parents. These kids many times aren't protected. I have a great deal of respect for Corey Feldman that he made it through.
This is one of the best I have read because he doesn't hold back. The whole book is punch after punch on events that shaped this man's life. I grew up in LA and always have heard stories but it's shocking when Corey validates it. I hope this book helps others. I hope other kids that are in acting read this.
I couldn't compare it to any. I truly felt this was honestly written. I tend to read old rock star biographies and they don't seem as sincere as this. Mostly because they did so many drugs they really don't remember. I think it took a lot of courage for him to write this book. I am sure it was healing to him because I am sure you will never 100% recover from what this man went through.
It was shocking, sad but also brought back memories of my own childhood watching these films as a kid.
This is a great book and I highly recommend it. He bears his heart and it's honest. I hope other child stars or parents of future child stars read this book. I grew up in this town and the Hollywood glamour is a big illusion. It's not all bad, but it's not all good.
