Publisher's Summary

Este es un libro brillante, conmovedor, desgarrador y fascinante. La historia de Sheff es sincera, porque dice la verdad que a muchos se nos hace difícil reconocer en nuestros hijos y que a veces está latente y nos hacemos los ciegos para no verla.

David Sheff nos presenta la adicción y sus confusiones de una manera clara y aleccionadora, poniendo como ejemplo su propia experiencia y la de su familia. A la vez es una bella historia del amor mas desinteresado y de los sacrificios que como padres somos capaces de hacer.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Critic Reviews

Stuck record

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. It's the same story, over and over. Son gets stoned on crystal meth, Dad sends him to rehab. Repeat.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Anything by Esmeralda Santiago.

Was Mi hijo precioso [Beautiful Boy] worth the listening time?

The story was dull. But Spanish is my second language, and the reading was great for my listening skills.
