Great Insight for All

I’m a huge fan of BSB and really found this relatable even though I haven’t gone through the same situations as NC. I recommend to anyone who is a fan but also who struggles with family issues or addiction.

Bravo, Nick Carter! Bravo!

I have been a fan of the Backstreet Boys since I was a young girl. Nick has always had a piece of my heart throughout all of his struggles and, most especially, throughout his recent triumphs. He remains a personal hero of mine for taking his life back and fighting for what he believes in. Go Nick!

Inspiring and hopeful despite the dramatic narrative! Honest and revealing, emphasises on valuable lessons about personal improvement, the power of positive thinking and forgiveness.

Powerful book

This book is so raw and real about all the struggles that Nick Carter went through with his addiction. I think the only thing that could have made it better is if he had read it considering it was an autobiography. It was hard to get into Mindset that it was about him when it wasn’t his voice.

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.

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.

loved it

Does contain biographical information so not sure why some reviews say otherwise. Nick is thoughtful, concise, and I actually don't mind it's not narrated by him. His memories/experiences and the way he applied solutions to his struggles was inspiring to hear. Overall great book and I definitely took away a few life lessons for myself.
