Its a self help book

I had no idea it was a self help book.
I thought it would be a autobiography, I would have preferred that.
The narration was ok but again it would have been better if Nick had done it himself.
I would have rather read this in book form to really hear Nicks voice instead of Ted's

Nick Carter should have narrated this

Would you try another book from Nick Carter and/or Ted Evans?

Definitely another book from Nick Carter, but I was not happy that he did not narrate this book himself!

Any additional comments?

This book is a mix of self-help book and biography.

I almost want to give this a 1 star...ughhh

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This was a self-help book and FAR LESS about his history and life. I was NOT AT ALL looking for advice from NC on life and found the book terribly annoying.

And NC does NOT even read it...I just hated all of it.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ted Evans?

He was fine but I was expecting NC. SHould have read more closely.

The narrator nails it.

Would you listen to Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It again? Why?

I'm not that much of a Nick Carter fan but a friend recommended this book to me and I got it, and boy am I glad that I did. Not since hearing Jack Welch: Straight from the Gut narrated by Mike Barnicle have I heard such a good interpretation of the author's own voice and intent. As I really felt Mike Barnicle perfectly channelling Welch, so does Ted Evans channel Nick Carter through his voice. I can't wait to hear Evans' next book - hopefully it's for a more substantive story.

Would you ever listen to anything by Nick Carter again?

Carter lost me at "Chapter 3: Til Death Do We Party."

Have you listened to any of Ted Evans’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first I've heard of Ted Evans's audiobooks but I'm looking forward to hearing more.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It?

I think of all of the biographies I've read or listened to, this one made me feel the most secure with not being a celebrity.

Any additional comments?

Get this on audiobook, not on paperback - it's a great listen.

Honest and helpful

I was a huge, young teenage fan of nick and his fellow BSB's growing up so i thought I'd give this book a go since learning about nicks upheavals throughout life after watching interviews and reading news articles. I found it open and honest and very helpful. So helpful i intend to set some goals of my own and tweak the few things in my life that need addressing. after studying abnormal psychology myself and gaining a qualification, I too know how important it is to keep on top of your mental health before seeking to help others. I really enjoyed this read and eould recommend to anyone who may have the same issues. The longest journey you'll ever face is the one leading up to taking the first step.

Very proud of his recovery

I think people write off celebrities far too quickly. This is the honest story of a man who has fallen into the Hollywood trap of drug, sex and alcohol abuse. This isn't a book full of Judy gossip in case some fans are disappointed, but it is a self help book for those who could be facing the same demons Nick once was. It is an eye opener, because as a fan of Nick and the BSB, I had no idea as to what depths his suffering was like. I am so pleased he has found the faith, strength and courage to get to where he is today - happily married, a father and sober. He is an inspiration to many and I hope this book saves lives.
