Good Information

I found the book very informative but not on my top ten list.

What other book might you compare Understanding Drugs and Drug Addiction: Treatment to Recovery and Real Accounts of Ex-Addicts, Volume 1 to and why?

I would not compare it to any other book I have listened too

What about Claton Butcher’s performance did you like?

His voice was ok. Not great but okay

Garbage, not even worth one star

The confessions maybe true, but the language used makes them seem not only false, but totally made up by someone who has little exposure to anyone on drugs of any type. There are so many other confessional books, just avoid this one.

Horrible Narrative!

Awful narrative! He sounds like an automated system, literally as if he is a robot. The content of the book is for beginners. It may be helpful if this is the first time you delve into addiction but it is NOT helpful as a resource for substance abuse counselors.
